Light Steel Structure Systems

Light Steel Building

Light steel is produced from galvanized steel by cold forming method.

Light steel construction technology is a construction system in which structural elements are produced from galvanized steel by cold forming method. Building details, which are structurally designed, are transferred to the machine with computer support and shaped in specially designed Hekim Structure Robot lines. Thanks to the fact that pre-manufacturing is carried out in the factory environment and on robot machine lines, errors that might be caused by human factor are minimized.

Light steel construction types are much more affordable compared to heavy steel and reinforced concrete, assembly and disassembly of the products can be performed easily. Construction machinery needed during the installation of heavy steel structures is not needed much for light steel structures. This is an important factor that reduces the installation cost even more.

What Are The Properties of Light Steel Construction?

  • Offering unlimited options with numerous production alternatives, light steel elements can be applied according to order in all structural issues such as assembly, number of floors of constructed building, and purpose of use.
  • While producing according to order, it is also suitable for architectural solutions.
  • It does not contain error margin due to the technology used in factory productions.
  • Steel material is used in columns and beams.
  • It is more advantageous compared to reinforced concrete buildings in terms of thermal insulation.
  • If sound insulation is required, a professional insulation is provided by installing sound barriers on the steel construction.
  • Buildings made of galvanized steel remain standing for a long time.
  • Structures that are most resistant to earthquakes are structures made of light steel.

Why Should You Prefer Light Steel?

Strength and weight ratio used in construction technique in the production of building materials is one of the most important criteria to be considered. Construction is done according to this ratio; strength-weight ratio is taken into consideration when deciding on important issues such as number of columns and beams, positioning within the structure, and number of floors.

Building elements are often produced using recycled materials. However, various deformations are observed in construction raw materials after recycling and these materials become unusable. In this sense, steel is among the sustainable construction materials. There is no loss in strength and durability, especially when reused after recycling. Dimensional deformations such as contraction or expansion due to external factors are not observed. Material quality is in accordance with international standards and no product leaving the factory shows local or structural differences.

Constructions made of light steel are secure against fire. It is fireproof and prevents fire from spreading. Waste rate is 20% in timber whereas it is up to 2% in steel. Light steel construction materials, which do not show sudden increases in prices, provide long-term protection for the structure. It also provides advantages in maintenance costs in addition to reducing the construction cost. It does not cause oxidation problems that can be observed in the later years of the building, and it also minimizes the risk of occurrence and proliferation of mold and fungus formations.

For Which Projects Can Light Steel be Preferred?

Office buildings are among the projects where light steel construction technology can be preferred. During the project phase of light steel office buildings constructed by Prefabrik Yapı AŞ, needs criteria are determined first. How many personnel are there, how long it will be used and extra needs are the most important matters. While designing the building according to technical specifications, snow and wind load, in-office comfort is also among the points to be considered in addition to the static properties such as climatic conditions. A building design is made according to all the criteria considered, and special solutions are offered.

Sales offices are also among the light steel construction projects. In addition to the aesthetic appearance details that provide prestige, spacious spaces should be created for sales offices with quality materials. Since the number of visitors to the office will be high, the necessary infrastructure is prepared for all of them to be comfortable. In these types of buildings, high floors wide openings are preferred. It is required to make special static calculations in interior and exterior architecture. Care is taken to ensure that construction elements such as columns and beams, which are determined according to static values, are both robust and complement the interior architecture in terms of visual aesthetics. In the sales offices built by Prefabrik Yapı AŞ, electrical and sanitary infrastructure systems inside the building are projected as flush mounted. In addition to interior architecture, exterior aesthetics are designed and applied with the same degree of precision and care.

Light Steel Construction

Special design and application is provided for all healthcare center, hospital, family health center and polyclinic projects constructed by Prefabrik Yapı AŞ with light steel, according to the area of construction. Especially in healthcare buildings, it is important to create a strong construction with less materials and to have a low cost of construction. Fast installation and clean construction site environment is an important criterion for preferring these types of structures by healthcare centers. All of constructions approved by the Ministry of Health can be inspected. Another important issue is that the buildings are produced in the same model that reflects the institution they represent. Light steel structures provide a great advantage, as they are expected to be easily disassembled and assembled when the location needs to be changed due to an external factor that may occur in the area of construction. Hygiene is more important than anything else in healthcare centers and all healthcare institutions. Galvanizing process provides easy hygiene and keeps all kinds of insects away from the building. Light metal elements, which are preferred for their high heat and water insulation, are among the constructions that perform much better during earthquakes thanks to their flexibility and lightness.
