Cold-Formed Steel

Cold-formed steel (CFS) is made by pressing or rolling steel at low temperatures. Floors, roofs, and walls are often framed with CFS.


The fire resistance of steel provides an additional level of safety to structural frames.


Fastwalls steel is on average comprised of 74% consumer scrap. When steel components are used for the building envelope they can help to qualify the building for LEED.


Ability to provide a long life-cycle with minimal maintenance. CFS framing resists decay, corrosion, rot, termites, and mold. 

Fast Facts

⋅ Highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material
⋅ Lighter than other framing materials
⋅ Steel has the same strength in all loading directions
