which steel framingSteel Framing is extremely versatile and it can be used to provide solutions to many different types of building construction. Metsec’s Framing system can provide a variety of value engineering solutions from external wall infill panels to internal high bay separating walls to complete superstructure load bearing solutions.

To find out more, see below for a summary of the benefits and key differences between each system.

External Walls

SFS Infill Walling

  • Constructed from the floor to soffit of the primary structural frame to ‘infill’ the external wall zone
  • Most economical framing method
