Technology LSTS

Frame housing construction from LSTC has a long history. Contrary to popular belief, it arose in the mid-19th century in the United States, but at the beginning of the 20th century the development of cold-formed structures slowed due to the lack of a regulatory framework.

Today, frame house construction is the main type of low-rise construction in Scandinavia, Finland, Germany, the United States. Every year in North America, more than 1.5 million frame houses are being built. This is due to a number of obvious advantages.

1. Strength and durability.

Steel is not affected by biological processes (for example, rotting), unlike wood. The service life of light steel thin-walled structures is more than 100 years. They withstand all the features of our climate: temperature changes, precipitation, wind.

2. The speed of construction.

A comfortable village consisting of frame houses using LSTS, in contrast to the buildings built from traditional building materials, can be assembled within a month. Frame houses made from factory-made parts have a low weight, which allows in most cases to refuse the use of lifting mechanisms.

3. Lack of binding to weather conditions.

The customer is not limited by them during the construction of the frame house with the application of the LSTS. Due to the lack of wet processes during its erection, the construction team is able to provide a continuous work process.

4. Low cost.

The final cost of a frame house from LSTS is lower in comparison with a house made of traditional building materials: brick, aerated concrete block, ceramic block, etc.

5. High resistance to heat loss.

Thermal insulation properties of the building are provided by the fact that unlike buildings made of bricks or wood, the entire thickness of the wall is filled with a highly effective insulation, which significantly reduces the cost of heating buildings. The frame wall made of LSTS 25 cm thick is equal to 1.5 m of masonry in terms of heat loss resistance.

6. Seismic stability and fire safety.

Frame houses, where LSTS are used as the carrier system, are capable of withstanding seismic loads up to 8 points on the Richter scale. The mineral wool material used as a heater can be used at sufficiently high temperature ranges (-60 to +400 ºC). Thus, structures do not accumulate moisture, are protected from exposure to aggressive acidic environments, high temperatures and fire, are not susceptible to rodents and microorganisms.

7. Ecological compatibility.

The frame from LSTS is insulated with mineral wool. It is an environmentally friendly material. In addition, the frame from LSTS allows the reuse of steel elements, which is a big plus for the environment. This advantage is also actively used by mining companies in the construction of shift camps.

8. No house settling.

Buildings from the LSTS, due to their light weight, do not settle, unlike buildings made of brick or aerated concrete.

9. Wide architectural possibilities.

LSTS can cover quite large spans of up to 24 m without intermediate supports. This allows you to make the most efficient use of the internal space of buildings and structures, and allows for re-planning.
