Cold-formed steel boasts exceptional strength, making it a viable option for constructing robust, long-lasting buildings. A cold-formed steel building (or CFSB), is a type of construction method that utilizes steel sheets or strips that are formed at room temperature to create various structural components. These components can include studs, joists, purlins, and other framing elements. Cold-formed steel is distinguished from hot-rolled steel, which is shaped at higher temperatures.
Cold-formed steel buildings offer a range of benefits, making them a popular choice in modern construction. They are used for a variety of purposes, from residential housing to commercial and industrial facilities.
In the realm of modern construction, innovation and sustainability have become paramount. Cold-formed steel buildings, are a product of this evolution and stand as a testament to the engineering prowess of the 21st century. These structures offer a variety of advantages, ranging from cost-effectiveness to environmental sustainability. MaxSteel Buildings is now a proud distributor of Cold Formed Steel Buildings.
WHY CHOOSE COLD FORMED?
True pre-engineered metal buildings consist of red iron frames and red iron sub-structural members. The frames are fabricated and welded together in a time and labor-consuming process. Consequently, the typical lead time for these types of buildings is often several months. In recent times due to labor and supply chain issues, the lead time has extended even further.
Conversely, Cold Formed metal buildings feature roll-formed members pre-fabricated in a manufacturing facility. Roll forming all components eliminates the need for welding pieces into a finished frame. Consequently, cold-formed steel buildings allow us to deliver a building in weeks (instead of months) at lower total costs while maintaining, and in some cases, improving overall structure quality.
Cold-formed steel can be easily shaped and customized to fit various architectural designs and construction needs. This versatility makes it a popular choice for a wide range of building types, including residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional structures. Not to mention, because cold-formed steel is typically fabricated in a controlled factory environment, it tends to maintain a high level of consistency and quality.
