A key advantage of light steel frame is fire performance. The amount of combustible material in a light steel framed building is much lower, therefore the fire risk during construction and when in use is vastly reduced. Steel is non-combustible and does not add to the fire load of a building – reducing the ‘fuel for the fire’ and limiting risk of damage and injury.
EOS want to inspire construction professionals to build spaces that are safer and more sustainable. Manufactured from the most abundant component on earth, steel can be recycled or reused endlessly without detriment to its properties. This unique characteristic gives steel a high value at all stages of its lifecycle. The recovery infrastructure for steel recycling is highly developed and extremely efficient and has been in place for decades.
The benefits of specifying light steel frame are numerous, and our systems are well positioned to meet construction industry demands. Generating no onsite waste and the ability to be multi-cycled, light steel frame offers the prospect of a more productive and sustainable future by achieving:
Time is a critical factor – as a major project delivery strategy, factory-based offsite manufacturing methods reduce construction time by up to 50% achieving radically reduced build times, quicker occupation and ultimately, a faster return on investment. Offsite manufacture for onsite assembly provides a clear schedule for high outputs, with stringent systems to track progress, milestones and enable the smooth collaboration between contractors and clients.
EOS are highly experienced – our team have manufactured award-winning light steel frame systems for over 16 years.
We are well known for building excellent working relationships based on customer needs. Through collaborative working and by forming strategic alliances, we provide our specialist services to businesses, large and small, including some of the most prominent companies in construction.
