What is Steel Framing?

Steel framing is a method of building construction that uses steel instead of traditional wood framing. Steel framing is often used for commercial, industrial and multi-story buildings because it is strong, durable and fire-resistant. It is also known for its fast installation, with the frames being constructed off-site and then assembled on-site. Steel framing is also more eco-friendly as it consumes less wood and produces less waste than traditional framing methods.
