The Advantages of Steel Framing in Disaster Prone Areas


In the realm of residential construction, the impact of natural disasters cannot be underestimated. From hurricanes/cyclones and tornadoes to earthquakes and wildfires, various regions in the United States face the constant threat of Mother Nature's fury. In such high-risk areas, the choice of construction materials becomes paramount to ensure the safety, durability, and resilience of homes. One material that stands out as a game-changer in disaster-prone zones is steel framing. In this article, we will delve into the numerous benefits of using light gauge steel (LGS) framing in US residential construction, outlining why it should be the material of choice for developers aiming to build homes that are resilient against the forces of nature.

CFS vs the world’s largest outdoor shake table

It is well established that not only is cold formed steel much lighter and more elastic than traditional materials like concrete and masonry, it also absorbs energy better by dissipating the force of seismic activity.

To test exactly how well CFS structures are capable of withstanding earthquakes and the fires that often follow them, in June 2016 a team of engineers from the University of San Diego in California constructed a six-storey CFS building.

And, they built it on top of the world’s largest outdoor seismic shake table!

Most interestingly, this was the tallest ever CFS structure to undergo tests on a shake table.
