The high strength to weight ratio of steel and its design flexibility innovation is not possible using other materials. Engineered systems typically space the primary load-carrying members more than 24 inches on center; sometimes up to 8 feet.
The Steel Frame systems use secondary horizontal steel members to distribute wind loads to the steel studs. These studs are also used to support sheathing materials and provide a break intake heat flow path to the exterior, which increases thermal efficiency. The Steel Frame pre-engineered system provides framing studs, which are pre-cut to length, with pre-drilled holes for electrical wiring and plumbing.
Applying all attributes of the Steel Frame system and all concluded testing, it clearly can be stated that steel building technology is a superior method of construction. The steel frame technology is rated at least 23% above the building standards established by the United States Army testing labs. Results indicate that the Steel Frame System meets 100% of the design criteria utilized by the U.S. government in building military barracks and housing, hospitals, schools, warehouses, office buildings and general support facilities.
In addition, testing completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in coordination with Purdue University concluded that the steel frame can be successfully applied to buildings up to 5 stories.
