What Is Light Gauge Steel Frame Structures in Construction?

Steel is one of the toughest materials, and while it has several uses, it is known for its wide usage in the construction industry. It is one of the most critical materials used in construction worldwide. Over the years, newer construction technologies have evolved, making use of this versatile material to produce state-of-the-art building solutions.

One such noteworthy innovation is the use of  Light Gauge Steel Frame construction technology, which is increasingly being used in Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and the US, and is gaining popularity in India as well

 

What is a light gauge steel frame structure?

Light Gauge Steel Frame is a construction technology that uses cold-formed steel as the primary construction material. It can be used for roof systems, floor systems, wall systems, roof panels, decks as well as the entire building. Cold-formed steel (CFS) is fast becoming the material of choice for low to mid-rise construction in India due to its inherent advantages such as high strength to weight ratio, lightweight, easy to handle, cost effective, vermin resistant, dimensionally constant and can be fabricated with ease to a wide range of profiles and sizes with nearly no material wastage not to mention its sustainable nature whose material properties do not change with time.

 

Advantages of light gauge steel frame structure

 

High speed construction:

Construction time is nearly 3-times faster as compared to conventional techniques.

 

Low construction waste:

LGSF generates low construction waste and provides environmental benefits, including lesser CO2 emissions, lesser freshwater utilization and higher recyclability of steel components.

 

High tolerance:

LFSG structures are extremely robust and resistant to seismic disturbances as compared to traditional RCC structures.

 

Construction in difficult and harsh terrains:

Is possible using LGSF.

 

Design Flexibility:

Because of its strength, steel can span longer lengths, offering larger open spaces and increased design flexibility without requiring intermediate columns or load bearing walls.

 

High quality:

The steel frames are made from high-quality industrial-grade steel with consistent straightness. This simplifies the structural alignment. Also, since these structures have homogenous quality, they don’t warp or split. Nest-In derives its quality from Tata Steel which is the leader in the steel industry.

 

In today’s rapidly changing world and depleting resources, it has become more important than ever to utilise resources judiciously and work with the most sustainably technologies. Construction of essential infrastructure while keeping an eye on the ecological aspect and within an accelerated time frame highlighted the need for construction solutions which are not only unconventional and innovative, but also effective.

To meet the need of the hour, Nest-In launched HabiNest, a unique modular building construction solution designed for the Indian consumer. HabiNest is a light gauge steel frame (LGSF) construction solution, suitable for building industrial amenities, plant offices, academic institutions, residential complexes and infrastructure for communities.
