What are metal frame buildings and their importance?

Metal framing is a construction method that uses a skeleton frame of vertical steel columns and horizontal I-beams arranged in a rectangular grid to support the building’s floors, roof, and walls. Structural metal components can be promptly produced off-site and then delivered to the construction site as needed, decreasing onsite labor needs and the influence of variables that can cause a project to be delayed, such as inclement weather.

Weight-bearing wood or concrete items are heavier and weaker than structural metal components. The weight of a typical weight-bearing steel fabrication is 30% to 50% less than that of a hardwood counterpart. As a result, metal frame construction is significantly more durable and sturdier than typical wood frame options. Metal studs come in a variety of sizes and can be custom-made upon request. As a result, they can be customized to support specified loads in a variety of building types and sizes.

Metal frame constructions are fire resistant, minimizing the danger of a building catching fire and slowing the spread of a fire. This feature of structural metal is enhanced by special flame retardant coatings. Depending on its carbon content, structural metal can have considerable moisture resistance. A structural metal component with a hot zinc coating and additional powder treatments for better rust resistance will be even more resistant to the effects of water, an important issue for components exposed to the elements.
