The advent of light steel frame building is one of the most exciting developments in recent times in the steel and building industries. While this method of building has been used in most leading countries such as the US , Europe & Australia for decades, it has only recently been introduced in Central America. It offers quality, cost and energy efficiency, as well as speed of erection for both residential and commercial buildings.
“The system offers quality, cost efficiency and speed of completion”
When comparing LGS (light gauge steel) to conventional building techniques, one cannot help but admire the many benefits that steel offers the builder, developer, consumer and environment. Steel has long been accepted as having the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any other building material and therefore our steel structures are ideal for high risk environments subject to rot, corrosion, high humidity, etc. With steel being lighter than wood, termite proof, and basically fireproof, steel structures are the way of the future. From the concrete to trusses, the entire structure is galvanized steel with stainless fasteners. Steel is proven to be substantially more economical and environmentally friendly.
