Why is the global construction industry adopting light steel framing for construction so fast?
The benefits are real. Roll-formed light steel frames are dimensionally accurate and pre-assembled steel packages can be lifted straight from the truck in sequence, so onsite construction can be comparatively fast with minimal waste. Steel frames weigh far less than timber too which makes it easier to maneuver and to work with. And almost all light gauge steel is recycled, making it far more friendly to the environment than you might think.
Take a quick look at why light steel is shaping up to be a pillar of modern construction here.
