What is Cold-Formed Metal Framing?
Cold-formed steel (CFS) framing is light weight, extremely strong and non-combustible.
CFS members are made from structural quality sheet steel that are formed into C-sections and other shapes by roll forming the steel through a series of dies. No heat is required to form shapes (unlike hot-rolled steel) hence the name cold-formed steel. A variety of steel thicknesses are available to meet a wide range of structural and non-structural applications.
The benefit of CFS is that it doesn’t shrink or split, won’t absorb moisture, and resists warping, termites and fire.
Zinc coating on steel framing materials can protect against corrosion for hundreds of years. Each piece of CFS contains a minimum of 25% recycled content, is 100% recyclable at the end of its lifespan and emits no VOCs.
