1 – Cost-Effective
CFS framing has a proven track record of providing cost-effective benefits over the entire construction cycle due to lower insurance rates, shorter project cycles, predictability and accuracy of steel components, and improved design efficiency.
2 – Durable
The durability of cold-formed steel, including its resistance to corrosion, mold, and vermin, gives it a longevity that few building materials can rival.
3 – Sustainable
Cold-formed steel framing always contains at least 25% recycled steel (and often more than 70% recycled steel) and meets the highest sustainability requirements of all major green building standards and rating programs.

4 – Non-Combustible and Resilient
Cold-formed steel framing is non-combustible, resistant to extreme environmental and seismic loads, blast threats, and ballistic penetration, making it one of the most resilient building materials available.
5 – Easy to install
Cold-formed steel is light, making it easy to ship, handle, and assemble. CFS wall, floor, and roof sections can also be assembled off-site in a controlled environment, which can minimize costly weather delays and ensure greater quality control.
