Light Steel Framing In Residential Construction (P402)
Light steel framing systems use galvanized cold formed steel sections as the primary structural components, which can be assembled as prefabricated panels. Light steel framing has many advantages including reduced costs and increased speed of construction.
SCI have produced this latest publication, which updates an earlier version to reflect the latest design standards and building regulations, and current construction methods in accordance with Eurocodes and within the scope of the Building Regulations (England and Wales). Information and guidance is provided on the construction of light steel frames in general applications for residential construction, including single occupancy houses and apartments.
Detailed design information is given on structural design and robustness, serviceability of floors, thermal and acoustic performance, fire resistant design and interfaces with other materials and components.
