Thin gauge sheets of Cold Formed Steel are used as they provide structural or non-structural support to items such as beams, joists, studs, columns, and built-up sections. Cold Formed Buildings are gaining more popularity each day since their standardization in 1946.
Cold Formed Steel is used in building garages, roofing systems, barndominiums and workshops among many others. Cold Formed Steel buildings are developed using structural quality sheet steels. These sheets are built into C-sections by roll forming the steel.
Cold Formed Steel sheets do not need heat to formulate a shape, unlike hot-rolled steel. Today, many steel grades are available in the market for non-structural and structural applications. Why should you consider it? Cold Formed Steel buildings are energy efficient, durable, and have reduced construction costs.
These qualities make Cold Formed Steel apt for residential construction. Due to its wide range of structural applications, we can see extensive use of CFS in multi-housing and mid-rise buildings. Cold Formed Steel framing is also famous for its cost-efficiency. It has a long record of offering cost-effective benefits during the entire construction process. In addition to that, CFS comes with lower insurance rates, more accuracy, shorter construction cycles, and improved design efficiency.
Cold Form building technology is the perfect solution for those looking to build quickly. At Coastal Steel Structures we don’t prefer one building system over the other. I-Beam building technology has a world of benefits in comparison to Cold- Form. You just have to consider the right technology that works for your project and timeline. Here are some key benefits to selecting a Cold-Form building system.
