Assembly Components


Standard Framing Members

 

The advantages of light gauge steel framing are abundant and you are probably already familiar with the typical light gauge steel framing members shown at the top of this page. You will notice the common sizes of cee studs and joists. In the center are the channel studs. Over to the right are runner channels.

Standard Steel Bracing

Standard accessories for light gauge stell framing: End clips are used to join members that meet at right angles. Foundation clips attach the ground-floor platform to anchor bolts embedded in the foundation. Joist hangers connect joists to headers and trimmers around openings. The web stiffener is a two-piece assembly that is inserted inside a joist and screwed to its vertical web to help transmit wall loads vertically through the joist. The remaining accessories are used for bracing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Basic Assembly


Headers and trimmers for floor openings are doubled and nested to create strong, stable box members. Only one vertical flange of the joist hanger is attached to the joist; the other flange would be used instead if the web of the joist were oriented to the left rather than the right.

In summary, Canadian steel frame building will provide you with the highest quality materials for your design, or premade steel construction package.
