About the Technology

Light Gauge Steel Framed Structures (LGSF) is based on factory made galvanized light gauge steel components, designed as per codal requirements. The system is produced by cold forming method and assembled as panels at site forming structural steel framework of a building of varying sizes of wall and floor. The assembly is done using special types of screws and bolts. LGSF is a well-established technology for residential construction in North America, Australia and Japan and is gaining ground in India. LGSF is typically ideal for one to three storey high buildings, especially for residential and commercial buildings. Due to its flexibility, fast construction and durability, this technology has great potential for counties like India. LGSF can be combined with composite steel / concrete deck resting on light steel framing stud walls.
