Why cold formed steel Framing

Cold-Formed Steel FRAMING

We can produce prefabricated panelized framing at our warehouse.

Bottom plates

Bottom plates are horizontal members fixed to the bottom of the studs and should be fully supported below load-bearing studs. Fixings through the bottom plate are used to secure frames to the floor.

K-bracing

Steel K-bracing, formed with FRAMECAD frame sections as bracing in the line of wall frames, may be used to provide bracing resistance to walls. K-braces can be used to provide frame squaring and stiffness to aid construction.

Webbed floor joist

This truss is designed to support multiple otThe webbed floor joist is a lightweight steel truss consisting of parallel chords and a triangulated web system. These are designed at various depths to span between support points.her trusses in a variety of roofing applications.

Jamb studs

Located either side of openings in the frame, jamb studs provide extra support for lintels above windows, doors and archways

Lintels

Lintels are horizontal structures within a wall spanning between jamb studs over door and window openings

Nogging

Nogging can either be a continuous length of C section with lip and web notches for the studs to pass through, or short pieces cut between the studs at alternate staggered heights. Typically, short walls will have one line of nogs, for taller walls, there can be 2-3 lines of nogs.

Top plates

Top plates are horizontal structural members fixed to the top of the studs. On load-bearing walls carrying a light load, top plates can transfer loads from the roof to the studs where the studs are not located directly below the trusses. For walls carrying heavy loads, top plates would need to be strengthened with L-header plates if studs are not located directly below the truss

FAQ

Yes, steel framing can easily be designed to meet and exceed energy efficiency standards across the world.

No, because of steel’s strength you can design your home with larger open spaces. With a steel frame, the walls will remain straight and true and can be finished with any materials that are traditionally used.

Typically steel framing is a similar cost to other construction materials. However, the speed to build, accuracy and limited rework mean the total development costs can be significantly reduced. 

No. A steel frame home will look exactly like any other home. The same exterior finishes can be applied to a steel frame as those applied in standard construction.

There are a range of cement based panel products for cladding the exterior of the building. These range from compressed cement sheets through to sophisticated composite panels with excellent thermal properties. On the interior it’s possible to use gypsum boards

FINANCING

A growing number of organizations are now offering building owners financial incentives for making their buildings sustainable and energy efficient.
