Why Cold Form Steel?
STS Steel Technology Systems

Because Steel Builds Better Structures. Period. Sustainable, economical and versatile, steel framing is at the forefront of alternative building materials for commercial and residential construction. Not only does cold form steel have the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, but it is non-combustible and resistant to mold, insect damage and rot. Made in the USA, the quality of the material is produced in strict accordance with national standards--which means consistent material quality in all regions of the country. Plus, steel is 100% recyclable, making it one of the best sustainable framing choices available.

Developers and Building Owners Love Steel
And here’s why: not only does steel framing make buildings safer, but it also means less maintenance and a slower aging process for the structure. Fire, insect and mold resistance translates into substantial insurance savings, while stronger connections decrease the effects of seismic force in the event of an earthquake. Plus, steel is the natural choice for sustainability: made right here in the USA, steel is 100% recyclable.
