[video width="1920" height="1080" mp4=""][/video]   Assembling CENTUM structures with their bolted connections enables users to build systems with ease. Plant engineers looking for a solution that makes affixing joint connections easy in comparison to metal carpentry will get this with CENTUM. Not only will you receive quality when you select CENTUM, but you can also skip the need to consult qualified personnel to carry out the welding procedure, which other brands that offer metal carpentry options will require. CENTUM requires less effort to construct and is both flexible and versatile.

Easy modification of modular system structures vs. metal carpentry

A significant drawback of metal carpentry options is that they tend to lack versatility since they are welded and cannot be reused. For this reason, selecting an alternative bolted connection option such as CENTUM is a recommended choice since the parts can be used for other purposes once they have been dismantled.

Why is MEFA’s CENTUM the superior choice?

There are a vast number of qualities that put MEFA’s CENTUM ahead of other brands. Here are some of those qualities.

Available in a wider variety of sizes and dimensions

MEFA’s CENTUM modular piping support system is available in five different sizes. The sizes begin at XL 80mm x 80mm x 2.5mm, and increase to XL 200mm x 100mm x 5mm. While alternative brands provide size variety, they do not provide the number of options offered by CENTUM.

Innovative customization options are available

Many brands that offer modular piping support systems either do not provide customization in their profile rails or fail to specify if they provide this service. With MEFA’s CENTUM, customization is an option for plant engineers who require their profile rails to be cut.

Surface treatments to augment the quality

MEFA’s CENTUM modular piping support components can also be covered in a unique surface treatment. Its complete corrosion protection and top surface protection safeguards and shields the entire surface of its components, or users can select a particular painting option.  Alternative brands simply do not offer surface treatment or provide the quality or adequate corrosion protection that MEFA provides.

Effortless and precise alignment

Compared with alternative brands, CENTUM components and rails can be aligned with millimetric precision and minimal effort thanks to the holes featured on four sides. The alignment of alternative brands must adhere to the specified distance between each hole or do not offer millimetric precision on every rail side.

Quality assured and regular quality inspections

MEFA’s CENTUM is RAL certified. The modular piping support components are quality checked regularly and meet the DIN EN 1090 specifications to guarantee complete safety and quality to its users. Alternative brands are not checked as regularly for quality and do not make this information readily available.
