  • Steel has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material.

  • IBC and local codes limit how tall a building or structure can be.  The main factor is the combustibility of the material used to construct.

  • Cold formed steel is 100% non-combustible.

  • Helping builders and developers use the land more efficiently by the use of taller or wider buildings for the same classification of occupancy.


  • Cold formed steel will not absorb moisture and resists warping.
