Cold Formed Steel: Beyond Nonstructural Interior Walls

Some builders assume cold-formed steel is only suitable for nonstructural interior walls, but it can also be used for floor joists, roof trusses, and more. Buildsteel.org takes us through the extensive versatility of constructing with CFS.

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.

Can CFS produce the roof trusses YOU need for your projects?


Quality assurance, and the sourcing of cost-effective, superior materials, is a primary concern in any modern building project. One approach that can make a substantial difference in project quality and efficiency is to use roof trusses made with cold formed steel (CFS).

CFS roof trusses work well for projects of any common size or scope. They are a very durable and cost-effective alternative to wood trusses, helping building owners and contractors around the world complete projects to the satisfaction and high standards of everyone involved.
