Lightweight Building In The UK
Cold rolled steel is more economical than hot rolled steel when used as a portal frame design, due to the amount of steel used.The cold rolled steel is produced with a galvanised finish to protect it from rust. You won’t need to apply any further treatments.
Cold rolled steel is also lightweight, as the components are assembled together onsite. This means there are cost savings in the manufacturing process, transportation costs, and installation on site.
Due to the structure being lighter than traditional hot rolled steel buildings; costs are usually saved on the groundworks element of the contract.
Cold rolled buildings are ideal for workshops, storage buildings, industrial units, car show rooms where the structure is not asked to perform any other function.
