History of LGSF
Light gauge steel frame (LGSF) has been known about since the 1850s in the USA and UK but picked up pace in the 1940s in post war Japan where it was turned to in order to rebuild.
The necessary wood was not available in post war Japan but they soon realised that this was a blessing in disguise as light gauge steel frame was used to great effect and further developed in true Japanese style.
Light gauge steel frame has now been taken up in Australia, Scandinavia, as well as the US and UK markets.
As recently as the 1990s very few steel frame houses were built in the US but the trend has dramatically increased. It has been realised that light gauge steel frame is what man, to solve modern day problems, has been looking for in a construction material.
“”We will work towards London being the first place in the 21st Century to use light gauge steel frame, as their first choice of, construction material. It ticks all the boxes and is the solution, already tried and tested, to solving the increased demand and the environmental issues facing human beings and the construction industry today.
