Light Gauge Steel Structures

 

Scottsdale Construction Systems has been providing leading-edge, total solution technology for the manufacture of lightweight steel construction frames and trusses since 1995. The technology comprises comprehensive virtual building 3D design software and machine control software and CNC roll-forming machines.
H.H TechnoFab design Light Gauge Steel structure in Pakistan and hot-rolled structural steel in accordance with the AISC or British Standard BS 5950. Built-up frames and other welded members are designed in accordance with the American Institute of Steel Construction AISC “Specification for the Design, Fabrication, and Erection of Structural Steel Buildings”,” Ninth Edition”. All welding conform to the requirements of the American Welding Society. Light gauge cold-formed members are designed in accordance with the requirements of the American Iron and Steel Institutes “Specification for the Design of Light Gauge Cold-Formed Steel Structural Member”, 1986 Edition.

Design Loads:

 

Structures are designed to withstand the dead load:

(a) Live load (b) Prescribed wind load.

The design procedures follow the Metal Building Manufacturers Association’s MBMA “Low Rise Building System Manual” 1996 Edition or as specified by the project.
