Cold-formed steel is a type of structural member fabricated from steel plate, sheet, or strip. It's an ideal shape that can be formed with no heat by cold rolling the material. Unlike hot-rolled steel, it typically offers thinner walls and lighter weight products at a lower cost as well as versatility in design options because it's easier to fabricate and handle than its traditional counterparts like iron framing materials (which are heavier).
Cold-formed steel structural members offer versatility in the building because it is easy to handle and lightweight. They are thinner, lighter, and easier to produce than their hot-rolled counterparts, as well as costing less. Cold-formed structures also provide more flexibility in design options that cannot be economically accommodated using traditional framing materials such as larger open spaces, longer spans, or doorways.
