The advantages of Light Gauge steel construction.

1. Build ability:

The usage of light gauge steel structures lessens on field works, decreases material wastage and enhances the quality of the structure.

2. Speed:

Light gauge steel structures takes less construction time with comparison to bricks or concrete blocks construction. It overall saves up to 30% and 40% time for a project.

3. Strong but Lightweight:

Light gauge steel structures possess high strength to weight ratio than any other material used for constructing buildings. Due to this, a large amount of reinforcement is saved during foundation construction. Moreover, it can be easily handled and moved from one place to another.

4. Safety:

Light gauge steel structures possess huge safety for inhabitants. It is fire resistant and noncombustible. Cold-formed steel buildings perform better during natural disasters. Due to its light weight, buildings are designed for higher seismic and wind load.

5. Easy to Remodel:

Remodeling of light gauge steel component can be easily attained especially partition walls can be easily shuffled, detached or even changed.

6. Design Flexibility:

Light gauge steel structures offers flexibility in design as larger span lengths are available due to less weight of structure and space utilization is increased.

Furthermore, it has higher resistance against sound, fire and water. Moreover, it doesn’t have termite problem.
