SFS Load Bearing Structures
Load bearing structures make use of the axial capacity of the Metsec SFS studs, with studs designed as a series of columns to provide complete load bearing wall panels. Joists are provided to produce the floor and roof construction. These structures are typically ‘stick built’ on site, which ensures maximum flexibility of the structure to suit site requirements. This flexibility makes load bearing structures ideally suited to penthouses or high level inset structures where it is important to keep the loads to a minimum. They also benefit from reduced crane and transport costs, when compared to pre-panelised solutions.
