Steel Framing Systems (SFS)

Steel Framing Systems (SFS)

Proven, Fast, Affordable Structural Framing Systems

SFS is a fast-track external walling solution constructed using lightweight cold-rolled galvanised steel sections. A variety of sizes and gauges are available to provide cost-effective solutions for the individual requirements of any project. It is ideally suited to a wide range of projects, including residential, commercial and public developments; as well as refurbishment projects, particularly those which involve sub-division of buildings, conversions or roof extensions.
Speed of Build
SFS offers installed time savings of over 60% over blockwork. Rapid dry envelope – reduced time to achieve a watertight structure over a traditional build allows access for follow on trades earlier and further reduces the build programme.
Quality and Cost
Lightweight cold-rolled steel sections are precision engineered products manufactured to tight tolerances, ensuring exact performance and resulting in less time spent on-site correcting errors and solving problems.
Building Physics
Warm frame construction from lightweight cold-rolled steel sections can be designed to easily to achieve high levels of structural, fire, acoustic and thermal performance, achieving a typical U-value of between 0.11-0.35 W/m²K and an acoustic performance of 55/65 dB.
Design
With our in-house detailing department, schemes can be fully detailed prior to rolling, exposing potential clashes at the design stage and resolving them before they become costly problems on site, ensuring the optimum solution for the external facade.
Sustainability
Light steel walls offer ‘A’ ratings in the BRE Green Guide. Steel sections are 100% recyclable. This is increasingly important as the lifetime environmental impact of the building is increasingly scrutinised to meet tighter government legislation.
