Steel Frame Structures
Cold Formed Steel Framing Packages
FastFrame™ Steel Frame Structures are not built with the old stud and track building system: they are a new way to build.
To begin with, our process emphasizes the engineering/design stage of the build by rendering CAD drawings that are fully engineered and local code compliant. In fact, the system works on everything from a standard barn to a large residential home. In the planning stage, real-time changes are integrated immediately, saving time and money. This up-front attention to detail produces strong, lightweight framing packages that are easily installed on your job site.
Cold Formed Steel: What is it?
Cold Formed Steel (CFS) is a lightweight material that lends itself to extremely accurate, precise
fabrication. We at JD Metals manufacture CFS in large quantities at high speeds, which in turn makes the process highly cost effective. CFS is perfect for the straight, strong, stable and sustainable building components necessary for modern homes and structures.
Why Build Fastframe™ Steel Frame Structures?
Since the high strength-to-weight ratio of CFS converts into longer span distances, it is therefore a necessity in today’s wide-open floorplans. With this in mind, our in-house CAD designer can convert your plans into a CFS structure.
FASTER CONSTRUCTION TIMES
Lightweight components erected with minimal tools reduce the amount of skilled labor and heavy machinery required on job sites. As a result, construction speeds up and costs come down.
FABRICATION IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT
Modular sections produced indoors take weather out of the equation. In fact, CFS is non-combustible, rot and mold resistant, and has little contraction or expansion. Thus, CFS is a better long-term construction choice.
Though traditional builds incur up to 20% waste of materials, precise fabrication cuts steel framing waste to less than 1%.
