section steels for Light gauge steel construction

Posted:2015/11/17 0:56:11

Light gauge steel construction is very similar to wood framed construction in principle - the wooden framing members are replaced with thin steel sections. Steel studs and joists are strong and lightweight, and steel walls are completely straight, eliminating the costly problem of fixing pops in drywall.

The thicknesses of steel used here range from about 1 to 3mm for structural sections, and 1 to 2mm for non-structural sections. The members are sized to roughly correspond to wood members: 2"x4" and 2"x6" are common sizes.

In the residential sector, precast concrete slabs are often used, and they may be supported on steel beams that align with the walls so that they do not project into the room space. The precast concrete slabs may be designed to act compositelywith the steel beams and if so, the steel beams must be at least 190mm wide to provide support to the precast units and to allow sufficient space around the shear connectors. Often  sections are used as the supporting beams to minimise the overall floor depth.

The main feature is a very flexible but at the same time highly qualified department, provided with the most modern data processing systems for calculation and management; this makes possible the carrying out of important projects, by controlling costs without jeopardising the quality of the works.
