What are steel frame structures (SFS)?
Structural steel framing is a durable, reliable, cost effective, sustainable option for low rise, mid rise and high rise building projects. Structural elements are typically formed by a system of structural beams and columns. The range of available shapes and sizes allows virtually any architectural requirement to be met. Steel framing structures are typically designed, fabricated and erected in accordance with high level health and safety standards with it being the most popular framing material for, usually, non-residential buildings unless it’s appropriate to do so. SFS can be used for internal, external and load bearing structures and predominantly used for larger commercial projects.

Steel frame structures are a versatile solution to many of your construction needs and a common choice in modern buildings. With a higher density than timber or concrete, steel will be able to carry more load, meaning less steel is necessary to provide absolute support. By using less materials than timber or concrete for example, reduced labour and more simplified designs means steel frame structures are much more cost effective. Steel doesn’t split, crack or creep as it ages, it also doesn’t warp, rot or expand when there is an increase in moisture. Being a versatile material means structural steel can be fabricated into different shapes whilst still maintaining strength meaning these structures are not only aesthetically pleasing but also structurally sound.
