LIGHT GAUGE STEEL FRAME

Ideally suited for medium rise apartments (up to ten storeys), commercial building, care homes, schools and student accommodation, all light gauge steel frame buildings are not only designed, supplied and installed to comply with NHBC and Building Regulations, but are approved by SCI.

A typical Light Gauge Steel Frame timber building system consists of:

  • > Load bearing self-supporting superstructures
  • > Steel frame, timber or SIPS roof structures
  • > External cavity wall insulation
  • > Comprehensive package of first and second fix materials, including internal door sets, stairs, insulation and plasterboard (Optional)
  • > High performance windows and doors (Optional)

Main Benefits Of Building With A Light Gauge Steel System:

Easy & fast To install
Thanks to the precision at manufacturing level, when a light gauge steel system is delivered to site it is generally ready to go without the need for modifying, making the assembly process easier and quicker. 

Flexible & versatile
A great benefit of light gauge steel construction is that it can be fully customised and tailored to meet the requirements of any project. Each piece is made to order with accuracy down to the millimetre, reducing material wastage on-site. By using light gauge steel, there are also more design possibilities due to the high strength to weight ratio.

Cost-effective
LGSC is fast, easy and precise, which make it a great financial choice on certain projects. Furthermore, as it is lightweight and easy to transport, needing little-to-no adjustments on-site, LGSC is ideal for reducing labour and material costs, both initially and in the long run.

Environmentally friendly
Crucial in construction today, is the consideration of the environmental impact of both materials used and the end build result.

Light gauge steel construction has many environmental benefits, including little material wastage, plus steel is completely recyclable. In fact, it is often made up of recycled steel in the first place.
