About Steel Studs and Joists

Although "Steel" may conjure up images of a heavy, cumbersome material for construction, steel studs and joists from coated sheet steel products are just the opposite. Cold-formed sheet steel is an easy to handle, economical, non-combustible, high quality alternate to more traditional framing materials. Steel framing offers a strong, accurate, dimensionally stable and durable framing system. Lightweight steel framing will appeal to any one interested in building construction.
