What you should know about AV Light Steel
The Scottsdale Rollformer is also approved by the South African Light Steel Frame Building Association (SASFA)
Our structures are manufactured from cold-formed galvanized or ZincAlum structural steel sections.
One of the biggest advantages of light steel building is pre-construction which means saving money and time by means of the structure being rolled and flat packed at the factory and assembled on site.
Walls or trusses can also be pre-assembled, if possible, for delivery or collection.
Light steel have been tried and tested for decades in Australia, America and Europe, withstanding natural disasters including tornadoes, earthquakes, fires and hurricanes, and has become a big leader for green building methods in South Africa.
Our floor joists can be used for single or double storeys and are much stronger than timber allowing for longer spans with no vertical support.
Our beams are much lighter than your conventional steel beams and no welding or steelworks are required.
Wall frame structures can be erected on top of any type of foundation or existing structure for a second storey.
There are various interior and exterior cladding and finishing options available.
Light steel trusses have become very popular and can be used on any type of building method, not only on a light steel structure. It can be used on industrial steel, timber and even conventional brick or block building.
The trusses are designed and engineered according to the architects specifications and to suit the client’s needs should it be a gable, flat or pitched roof.
Light steel trusses are very similar to timber trusses but with more advantages in terms of quality, cost, durability and speed but also no infestation of termites, rotting, mould, moist absorption or shirking and often no cranes are required, one person can easily carry a 5- meter fabricated panel.
No additional preservative chemicals are required over and above the galvanizing process to treat steel, unlike the treatment of timber.
AV Light Steel will assist you with any project big or small. Single and double storey homes, RDP houses, schools, multi-units, site offices, garages, tuck shops, bus and taxi shelters, garden and tool sheds, carports, decks, pavilion, partitioning in existing structures, whatever your needs.
