Materials used in LGSF technology
XLGSF technology (light gauge steel framing) is a new concept of modern construction based on a strong load-bearing frame, effective sound and heat insulation, various materials of exterior and interior sheathing, and moisture-protective components. LGSF technology makes it possible to erect three-storey multi-apartment houses and commercial buildings, as well as to reconstruct them within the shortest period of time and with minimum economic investment.
Technology of steel profile production
Modern manufacturers recommend using light gauge steel framing to ensure that an addition to a multi-apartment house or a public building does not involve significant financial and energy demands.
Light gauge steel framings are produced on high-tech modern equipment through cold roll forming of galvanized steel strips to a certain profile. Fully automated process ensures maximum dimensional compliance when cutting grooves for thermal profiles and punching communication holes in stud profiles.
Insulants for walls of LGSF buildings
LGSF technology ensures reconstruction and construction of energy-efficient houses, as it assumes the use of the following insulants:
Exterior sheathing of LGSF buildings
One of the main advantages of LGSF technologies consists in the possibility of using different types of exterior sheathing. The most popular materials include:
Each material has its own advantages, with the conditions for their operation being limited directly by technological properties.
Foundation for LGSF buildings
LGSF social housing construction is considered to be the most profitable solution, which is mainly due to the lack of need for a complex deep foundation and possibility of constructing buildings on unstable grounds. Light gauge steel framings are characterized by a light weight which allows performing erection of buildings and houses on the basis of such types of foundations as:
