Light Gauge Steel framing is a revolutionary method of construction in a modern age where time, value for money and sustainability all are equally significant. According to contemporary lifestyle and changing weather condition in India we need to switch to a modern construction technology. Steel Frame Construction technology is the advent of a new concept in India which is now most demanding practices in construction due to its lightweight, least cost and faster construction. An economical Steel Frame Construction system is increasingly being used as the main construction method has caught on around the world in the last decay. This construction technique is being used in developed countries such as U.S, Canada, UK, Australia etc.
Steel Frame Construction is modern technology for construction of prefabricated buildings and structure on the basis of high quality galvanized steel. In steel Frame construction steel sections are used. These steel sections are called cold formed sections because sections are formed at room temperature. By this method, lightweight but high tensile steel sheets are formed. The sheet surface is coated with galvanized zinc or a mixture of zinc and aluminum called zincalume or galvalume that completely protect the surface from the corrosion.
Steel Frame Construction starts with the design of the building. Steel Frames are constructed according to design and architectural requirement in the factory This ready for ‘screw together’ labeled for assembly material are sent to the construction site where these frames are assembled by an expert team. Special studs are used during the assembly. After assembly in the gaps between the elements of the frame, heat insulation material is placed and then clad with dry sheeting on both sides so that a load bearing wall is formed and steel frame construction is completed.
