Frequently Asked Questions
While there are a variety of building styles that are well suited for Cold formed steel (CFS) prefabricated wall panels, the types of projects best suited are as follows.
In a load bearing application, CFS generally outperforms all other superstructure components in the 2 to 10 story range. It is possible to construct as much as ten stories of stand alone load bearing CFS on top of a building of essentially any height. given that the lower stories are supported by other means (structural steel etc.)
Given the nature and use of these buildings, it makes perfect sense to prefabricate the load bearing structure. There are huge cost, and construction duration savings in repeatable conditions. Shrock Prefab has helped pave the way with R&D and cost savings exercises in regards to progressive collapse design.
Assisted Living Facilities
Whether the facility sprawls (as is typical with this genre of building) or stacks CFS has huge advantages both in its non flammable nature, light weight, and resistance to organic infestations.
Just to name a few.
Absolutely! Our prefabricated panels allow for faster build times and reduced weather delays.
