13 Apr Loadbearing SFS
Build-Therm works with our extensive supply chain throughout the design, manufacturing, delivery, and installation of the pre-panelised loadbearing steel framing system. This façade solution has many advantages with design flexibility it is becoming a very popular structural solution for all new builds.
Load Bearing Steel Framing Systems provides the erection of masonry walls on the perimeter and interior of the building. Structural steel members are then anchored to the masonry walls using fixings. This design and construction of the wall enable the support of the full structure load. It uses the axial capacity of the stubs, which are designed in a series of columns, facilitating it to hold a large amount of weight.
The structures can be erected on site which gives the design team not only complexity but enables flexibility and adaptation later in the design process. Other benefits of us using Load Bearing SFS include high thermal and acoustic performance as well is often seen as a fast-track solution to a build.
Benefits of using loadbearing SFS:
- Enabling design complexity and flexibility
- High thermal, fire, and acoustic performance
- Fast track construction solution
