Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2004051014A1] A structural metal frame comprises an assembly of panels each including inter alia a plurality of elongate frame members (1, 2, 16, 17, 18) each having a central floor (3) and two parallel sides (4) which extend along opposite borders of the floor and which project outwardly from one side of the floor. One or each side of two or more frame members are deformed to produce a generally concave indent (7) on one side and a generally convex protrusion (8) on the other side. The arrangement is such that, on assembly, the indent (7) of one member and the protrusion (8) of another adjoining member cooperate to assist accurate location of the frame members one to the other.
