Although some builders may think of cold-formed steel (CFS) as an ideal material for interior framing, that’s not the extent of its utility. CFS delivers many advantages in the construction of wall panels, floor joists, roof trusses, and structural walls as well.

How webbed headers save time and money: Designing and building webbed headers with FRAMECAD


 When constructing a building it’s no secret that lintels are required when constructing openings in the building’s envelope. These are generally used to span the opening for structural load-bearing purpose, but in some occasions can be used for aesthetic purposes too.

Steel Lintels are generally made from pre-galvanised steel which is cut and roll-formed into the required shape. Predominantly a light weight material; steel lintels/headers are easier to handle on site or alternatively, are easily prefabricated into the wall panels.

World Steel Association Releases Report on Most Effective Materials for Mid-Rise Construction

The World Steel Association have recently published a report titled the Comparative Study Of Light Steel Framing, Hotrolled Steel, Concrete And Timber Residential Solutions – Structural Performance. This report aims to provide unbiased information and resources to all stakeholders involved in the construction sector. It details the strong and weak points of various structural solutions using different structural materials within the scope of low-rise (up to 4 storeys) multi-storey residential buildings. This has been conducted to help developers and building owners to make informed choices when selecting the structural material for their buildings.
