Light steel framing in residential construction (P402)

This publication is an update to an earlier SCI guide on the use of light steel framing in residential construction. It has been updated to reflect the latest design standards and building regulations, and current construction methods. The guidance addresses all the criteria that need to be considered and explains how these can be achieved with light steel framing.
SKU: P402

This publication provides information and guidance on the construction of light steel frames in general applications for residential construction, which includes single family houses and apartments. Light steel framing systems use galvanized cold formed steel sections as the primary structural components, which can be assembled as prefabricated panels. The publication addresses aspects of design within the scope of the Building Regulations (England and Wales). It also covers construction practice and detailing of light steel frames and their interfaces with other materials and components. The information is generic and focuses on general construction principles. Detailed design information is given on structural design and robustness, serviceability of floors, thermal and acoustic performance, and fire resistant design. Design guidance presented is in accordance with Eurocodes.
