Light gauge steel construction is very similar to wood framed construction in principle – the difference is wooden framing is replaced with steel.
As the skeleton of a building, the wall framing determines the quality of your build. Steel-framing is a straight and stable product that delivers a perfect finish. Steel doesn’t warp or twist because it doesn’t absorb moisture. The exactness that comes from building with LGSF helps follow-on trades to fit internal linings, kitchens and bathrooms. It also means less maintenance problems like cracked linings and sticking doors, instead you will enjoy straight walls, square corners and smooth-flush surfaces.
From a design perspective, steel-framing offers you the opportunity to truly expand your design ideas and concepts. With one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of all construction materials, steel delivers excellent spanning capability. This makes it perfect for creating wide, open spaces; as well as innovative building shapes and non-conventional roof lines. It’s also ideal for building on sloping or difficult sites. Steel framing will enhance your creative vision – giving you the freedom to create distinctive, highly-individualised buildings.
Building with light gauge steel frame offers huge benefits:
Construction is faster
High quality finish
