Good to know
Steel is resistant. Steel represents incomparable resistance not only to high winds and seismic activity, but also moisture, fire, corrosion, storm, termites and similar pests. With a highly effective galvanization process, light gauge steel profiles resist even the most humid regions and .
Steel is durable. Steel displays the strongest resistance to earthquake. The strength of steel is unquestionable, 21 times more flexible than timber and 10 times more than reinforced concrete (concrete + steel reinforcing). Ideal in poor ground areas, lightweight with a low ratio of specific weight to carried load.
Steel is practical. Light gauge steel frame construction is a rapid construction system. The main carrier system is established in residential type constructions within one week regardless of weather conditions. Turnkey construction can be as short as 2 months. A specific “construction season” does not exist. Reinforced concrete is not required, except for base. Buildings are factory pre-produced for rapid delivery meaning short lead times, minimum time on site, rapid and practical assembly without highly skilled labour or specialist equipment.
