LIGHT GAUGE STEEL
Light Gauged Steel (LGS) is cold formed galvanized steel (flat sheets) that comes in a coil form and is used to produce a range of uniform shapes and products. LGS comes in uniform thickness and together with the roll forming process has the advantage of high volume and high quality. LGS is lightweight, easy to carry and components are easy to assemble, therefore construction time is much quicker.
The Vesta & Artisan Quik-Build™ Systems (QBS) uses LGS components and this system falls under the category of Lightweight Steel Framing & Panels, one of the more superior constructions systems available in the world today. This category seeks to bring about a fundamental shift in the use of building materials by focusing on steel as the basic material which offers a host of advantages for owners and builders. Consider these strengths:
Benefits To The Builder
Benefits to the Owner
|» The basic material - steel has become the more economical option for construction.||» Vesta offers a strong, safe structure which requires less maintenance and lasts longer.|
|» Steel construction has been in widespread use in developed countries and is now gaining popularity worldwide, expanding market potential.||» The construction materials used are non-combustible. They will not burn or melt and will not add fuel to the spread of a fire.|
|» It allows for better quality of construction with straight walls, square corners and less visible defects.||» Vesta Homes are resistant to termites or any types of organisms, and thus provide healthier environment.|
|» LGS is lightweight which makes construction easier without the use of heavy construction equipment.||» The light weight of the structure reduces the possibility of foundation problems.|
|» LGS components can be supplied to exact lengths and sizes, thus eliminating jobsite cutting or trimming.||» The strong structure and light weight construction of Vesta Homes have a high resistance to wind and seismic forces.|
|» Steel wall panels and floor decking can provide excellent sound insulation and fire resistance ratings, based on design applications.||» Vesta Homes are more energy efficient and have better thermal resistance properties than homes built|
of conventional materials
|» With the LGS wall panel systems, such as the Vesta system, the quicker erection time means savings to the builder, developer or owner through reduced financing costs.||» Lower total costs in higher quality structures with steel construction.|
|» The consistent quality of LGS components reduces job site wastage and scrap.|
