Load Bearing Panels
Our Prefabricated Load Bearing cold-formed steel wall panels are comprised of axial and lateral bearing members, framed openings, shear walls, exterior sheathing, posts, floor systems, etc. Our load-bearing panels can be combined with most exterior envelope options, windows and door blocking, and more. Benefits of prefabrication include improved quality control, a reduction in on-site labor, limited susceptibility to inclement weather, and a significantly accelerated construction schedule.
The completed exterior panels allow the building to become weather tight much faster which prevents unnecessary weather damage to the building, reduces scaffolding cost, and expedites the MEP rough-in schedule. Other advantages come in the form of safety outcomes and quality of the finish due to the skilled tradesmen working at ground level as opposed to in a lift or scaffolding that can present a series of challenges.
