The use and application of Steel Framing Systems (SFS) has seen a marked rise in modern construction in recent years. Steel framing gives contractors and clients the peace of mind that they can build quicker, more accurately and more cost effectively than traditional methods.
With steel sections being a non-combustible component, they make the best solution for modern through the wall construction.
The market for steel framing is quickly expanding throughout the domestic, educational, commercial and industrial sectors which is expectedly given the benefit the systems offer. With its speed of construction and erection, high strength and long life, it is fast becoming an economic and versatile alternative.
SFS is a component-supply, structural, stud façade system which is extremely versatile and can be used to provide solutions to many different types of building construction, from external wall infill panels to internal high bay separating walls and continuous superstructure solutions. The system consists of C and U shaped studs and tracks, designed on a project-specific basis and constructed on site. This lightweight, galvanised and cold rolled system has many benefits over more traditional walling systems including speed of construction and cost effectiveness.
