All steel building products including steel framing are 100% recyclable. One of the key sustainable attributes of steel is its ability to be recycled without any loss or degradation of its inherent material properties, allowing it to exist for an infinite number of product life cycles. As part of a holistic approach, use of steel components can contribute to obtaining over 50 LEED points for building owners seeking certification under LEED Canada NC 2009. As a recycled product, steel provides marketing advantages over other building materials.Learn More
Steel can't burn, because it contains no elements that can serve as fuel. Steel provides no means for a fire to start, it does not contribute to fire growth or fire spread, and it does not contribute to the generation of smoke and toxic combustion products in fires. Building codes recognize steel framing as a non-combustible construction material. Steel remains non-combustible throughout the entire life cycle of the building - during building construction, occupation and future renovation and repair.Learn More
Steel stud load bearing walls are galvanized with a layer of zinc. The steel is protected from corrosion and does not absorb moisture. With steel stud framing, adverse weather conditions do not impede site progress and moisture is not trapped within the framing members. Steel framing does not dry out and shrink over time, thus the costly call backs to repair warped walls, nail-pops and squeaking floors are eliminated.Learn More
Steel stud framing is an inert material that doesn't release harmful chemicals and resists the growth of mold, mildew and other bacteria. Indoor air quality is regarded as one of the top environmental risks today, affecting the well being, productivity and performance of many people. Steel stud framing reduces these issues. Steel stud framing does not provide a home for insects and rodents.Learn More
