Established to influence legislation, regulation and to support the overall objectives and growth of the sector, the LIGHT STEEL FRAME ASSOCIATION (LSFA) is raising awareness of the performance and productivity benefits of steel framing systems.
Working closely with our members the LSFA provides access to industry contacts, technical expertise and market intelligence to support growth and increase market share.
To encourage a collaborative approach LSFA operates under a unilateral membership structure, with a tiered membership structure and one standard fee for all members to gain access to an extensive package of benefits.
Aimed at Manufacturers, Supply Chain, Consultants, Installers, Affiliates and Clients, LSFA members benefit from:
Fundamental to offsite construction, light steel is ideal for an array of building applications from housing to medical, commercial and leisure sectors. Typically used in building structures, steel framing may be used in panelised or volumetric systems, as well as hybrid structures. Light steel's lightweight, airtightness and thermal benefits make it a frequently specified material across all sectors.
Light steel technologies are ideal for the manufacture of full frames, roofing, modular options and infill wall applications. An adaptable material, steel frame systems are load-bearing, making them suitable for low, medium and high-rise buildings, renovations and extensions.
Steel components can be pre-fabricated into modules offsite or at a low level, reducing the need to work at height. Steel can also be delivered to site when required, reducing the need for onsite storage.
