Light Steel Frames Makes Skyscrapers Possible

Light steel house construction is a structural design technique with a skeleton frame made up of steel columns and horizontal I - beams, built around a rectangular grid to supports the walls, roof and floors of a structure that are connected to the skeleton frame. The development of this concept made the construction of the world's first skyscraper possible. 


Today, it is possible to construct buildings by using light steel frames that are much higher than previously conceived as well as being much more durable than traditional concrete constructions. With a lightweight property, these buildings are capable of withstanding stronger earthquakes and even more powerful hurricanes. With a lightweight property, even a small building can easily be erected or relocated without causing much damage to surrounding structures. With a lightweight property, it is possible for many different types of buildings to be erected in a limited amount of time and with minimal disruption to surrounding neighborhoods. Lightweight properties also make erecting these buildings easier since smaller frame sections can be bolted together with greater ease than large sections.


The use of light steel construction industries has become much more prevalent due to advancements in material handling and design, as well as increased speed in assembly. Previously, if a piece of equipment required for a new connection, the entire process would require a full day to complete. With a lightweight frame, this is no longer necessary. With the use of a light steel frame, the same piece of equipment can be connected to each other in a matter of seconds, making it possible to finish construction on time, increase production and reduce costs. In addition, it is possible to produce as many buildings as needed, providing a great resource of jobs for those in the construction industry.


As mentioned above, light steel frame building provides reduced risk in earthquake loading. The reduced load on the structure also decreases the structural support load required to keep the structure in place during an earthquake. A standard building should meet the National seismic criteria, but a lightweight structure can meet these criteria much more effectively than a traditional building could. For a quick example, consider a two-story building with two floors. The structural load required to hold the upper floor is not too great, while the lower level requires extensive reinforcement to withstand severe lateral load.
