steelframe construction

There are many cladding options when building with light gauge steel including:

  • brick veneer,
  • light weight concrete,
  • hebel (aerated concrete),
  • linear board,
  • tiled roofs and many other options.

Essentially any cladding used with traditional wood frame construction can be used with steel.  Also most traditional methods of cladding can be adapted to work with light gauge steel framing.

1.  Versatility & Long Spans
Steel is 100% accurate unlike timber.

2 . Long spans open spaces
Steel allows Architects to design large
wide open living spaces.

3. Cost effectiveness
Steel is cost effective because of speed of construction and less trades are needed.

4 Won’t rot twist or crack
Unlike timber, steel does not rot, twist or crack , is galvanised and has a long life span.

5. Built of site benefits
Pre fabricated indoors – so there is no-time loss to weather.

6. Environmental
75% of steel used in light gauge steel houses is recycled.
.
7. Weight to strength ratio
It takes a lot less to achieve your building design.

8. BER Rated
High BER rating achieved.

9. Air tightness
Easily achieved with a steel framed
System.

10. U values
Highest U values easily achieved with
Steel Framed systems.

11.  Versatility & Long Spans
Steel gives architects the freedom to achieve their most ambitious visions.
Long span steel sections enable large
OPEN PLAN SPACE
