LIGHTWEIGHT STEEL CONSTRUCTION LIVING AREAS
Today, as T-COD Architecture, we would like to talk about light steel construction structures. Let's take a look at the advantages of using light steel and the differences between light steel and prefabricated houses.
Steel has more than one type because it is a substance that contains structural differences. One of them is mild steel. It has managed to attract attention, especially with the emphasis on its use in buildings. Nowadays, with the increasing preference of light steel structure houses such as prefabricated houses in housing construction, it has started to be a matter of curiosity by everyone. So what are the light steel construction phases and what advantages does it have? Mild steel, which is formed by cold forming, is actually produced for use in the automobile and aircraft industries. However, it has started to be preferred frequently in residences due to its easy installation, affordable price and durability. Light steel structures consisting of load-bearing walls and floor panels stand out with their durability. Mild steel, especially used in container structures, is generally between 0.5 mm and 2.5 mm.
Since light steel structures can be built with a small number of equipment, it provides an economic advantage to the user. Therefore, its affordable price causes light steel structures to have an increasing use. Mild steel also has an inorganic structure and therefore does not rot. It is also environmentally friendly with its longer life and recyclability of steel products. Its non-cracking and non-expanding structure provides dimensional stability. In addition to its durability, being easy to install is another feature that increases the demand for light steel structures. Its easy installation greatly reduces the construction time. Light steel structures, which have higher strength compared to other carrier systems, are a system that allows sound, heat and moisture insulation and saves time with its fast construction. Light steel and prefabricated houses; Although they have similarities such as being cost-effective, offering architectural freedom, being light and earthquake resistant, there are important differences between them. One of them is that the carrier of light steel structures is steel columns, and the wall panels of prefabricated houses. The insulation technology of light steel structures is superior to prefabricated houses. While light steel can be built up to 4 floors, prefabricated houses can be built up to 2 floors at the most.
It is possible to create environment-friendly, easy-to-install and affordable living spaces with structures built with light steel construction.
