Benefits of Light Gauge Steel Framing
- Cost savings through reduced construction time
- Fast-paced construction is ideal with a permanent formwork trussed floor system
- Can be incorporated for any overall depth floor system and to suit design requirements
- Framing can be made to suit any size/depth section (including 75mm & 90mm stud) and designed to suit a range of roll-formed and fabricated methods
- Little to no transfer of noise or vibrations – less noise and disruption for neighbouring buildings
- LGS has a higher strength to weight ratio compared to timber
- Steel is weather-proof and will not warp or swell, this also means it is not subject to rot, decay or moisture damage
- LGS frames are 100% termite-proof and pesticide-free
- LGS offers design freedom, steel is ideal for open plan housing and offers flexibility for easy alterations and additions if needed
- Floor trusses allow easy install of services
- LGS is ideal in cyclonic regions
