Structural Steel 2mm Light steel

What is Steel Framing?

Light gauge steel frames are cold formed sections shaped at room temperature. The steel (1 to 3mm) is shaped by guiding thin sheets of steel through a series of rollers, each roller changing the shape very slightly, with the net result of converting a flat sheet of steel into a C- or S-shaped section. Similar to wooden framed construction, a frame of steel members is first constructed with connections between members and fastened with self tapping self drilling screws (SENCO’s 55WS19MC screw). Then the steel frame is clad with dry sheeting on both sides to form a load bearing wall with drywall screws such as SENCO’s 39B35MP.

SENCO has the perfect solution!

The need for fast and efficient solutions in the steel framing industry increases fast. With the SENCO DuraSpin range electrical contractors can easily install metal junction boxes and electrical outputs.

 

Hot item

Steel framing is becoming a hot item in the buidling industry. This application could even become a better option than traditional timber framing. Using formed light gauge steel to create lightweight but very strong prefabricated structures which are fastened together using crimping methods or metal drilling screws.
Off-Site construction allows for precision made panels sections that can be produced quickly and efficiently especially when supported by the SENCO DuraSpin collated screw system. The prefabricated elements can be used in modular construction or transported as panel sets to the construction site. There they can be
installed immediatly saving time and reducing waste in both residential house or commercial construction.
