1. What are the applications of cold-formed steel (CFS)?
Cold Formed Steel shapes can be used for roof systems, floor systems, wall systems, roof panels, decks, or the entire buildings. They can also be used as individual framing members such as studs, joists, headers, and truss members.
Cold Formed Steel members can also serve as both primary structures and secondary structures. An example of the Cold Formed Steel used as primary structures is the FRAMECAD webbed trusses.
Steel studs can also act as secondary structures by providing lateral support to exterior wall finish since they rely on the primary structure for support.
