Cold-Formed Steel

Cold-formed steel (CFS) is made by pressing or rolling steel at low temperatures. Floors, roofs and walls are often framed with CFS.

Non-Combustible

The fire resistance of steel provides an additional level of safety to structural frames.

Sustainability

Fastwalls steel is on average comprised of 74% consumer scrap. When steel components are used for the building envelope they can help to qualify the building for LEED.

Durability


Ability to provide a long lifecycle with minimal maintenance. CFS framing resists decay, corrosion, rot, termites and mold. 


Fast Facts


⋅ Highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material
⋅ Lighter than other framing materials
⋅ Steel has the same strength in all loading directions
