Title: INTEGRATED MODULAR METAL FRAME BUILDING SYSTEM
Abstract:
An integrated modular metal frame building system (1) comprising a plurality of structural members (14, 16, 18, 20, 22) taken from a set of structural members (14, 16, 18, 20, 22); at least one key plate (24, 26) taken from a set of key plates (24, 26); and at least one locking peg (28). The plurality of structural members (14, 16, 18, 20, 22) each have at least a pair of apertures provided therein for receiving the at least one key plate (24, 26). The at least one key plate (24, 26) having apertures provided therein for receiving a locking peg (28). The at least one locking peg (28) has at least a pair of retaining arms (136) each having a slight tapered edge. When the key plate (24, 26) is received in the plurality of structural members (14, 16, 18, 20, 22) and the retaining arms (136) are received within the apertures of the key plate (24, 26), the slight tapered edge creates a tensioned connection between the structural members (14, 16, 18, 20, 22).
