Light Steel Framing

Light steel framing and modular construction can be used in a wide range of building types and construction applications, including:

  • Load-bearing multi-storey frames
  • External infill wall panels
  • Modular construction

Light steel framing is generally based on the use of proprietary C or Z shaped steel sections produced by cold rolling from strip steel. The steel used in cold formed sections is relatively thin, typically 0.9  to 3.2 mm, and is galvanized for corrosion protection.
