Steel framing 101 — A new year, a new way to build
Technical Course
Recorded on January 20, 2022

Course Description
If you’re unfamiliar with cold-formed steel (CFS) framing or simply haven’t used it in a while, you may have several questions: What is it? How can I use it? Why should I use it?

CFS certainly isn’t a new building material. It actually has been used in North America for over 100 years. Because of its light weight and durability, it can be used in a range of applications — from interior, non-loadbearing partition walls to structural members in mid-rise and multi-family buildings.

Whatever your current level of knowledge, consider this webinar a primer on all things CFS framing. In it, you’ll learn what CFS is, how it can benefit a construction project, the basics of designing with and ordering CFS, and training options for expanding your CFS knowledge.
