Blue pacific drywall is a specialist in steel stud framing. The application areas of using Steel Studs range from Light Gauge Steel Stud Framing to Load Baring Engineered Systems.
Elite residential and commercial projects can benefit from its strength and design flexibility of Steel studs. Steel stud is a non-combustible, lightweight, environmentally friendly, engineered product made from recycled material.
Steel stud does not succumb to shrinkage or movement and maintains its strength and structural integrity. Steel trusses and steel joists have large span capabilities, creating impressive, large open spaces.
Better Structure: There are many reasons why steel framing has come to the forefront as one of the best and most feasible alternative building materials for residential and commercial construction. Steel is a Superior Construction Material. It has the Highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material and is 100% recyclable. With a High 68% industry recycling rate. Much better than wood. It is also Non-combustible does not burn nor contribute fuel to the spread of a fire. In many cases this is a major factor in Medical and Dental office build.
Steel Studs will not rot, warp, split, crack or creep. Steel Studs are also Dimensionally stable. Steel Studs do not expand or contract to changes in the weather, and retains no moisture which is also critical for Indoor Air Quality.
Consistent material quality – produced in strict accordance with national standards. no regional variations. Steel Stud framing will produce a building frame that exceeds all building codes.
Steel Stud Use: Less scrap and waste (2% for steel vs. 20% for lumber)More Steel is recycled everyday than all the glass, paper, aluminum and other plastics combined.
Price stability – price spikes are extremely rare
Consumer perceives steel as better
Benefits to the Consumer
High strength results in safer structures, less maintenance and slower aging of structure
Not vulnerable to termites
Not vulnerable to any type of fungi or organism, including mold
Less probability of foundation problems – less weight results in less movement
Less probability of damage in an earthquake
Lighter structure with stronger connections results in less seismic force
Less probability of damage in high winds
Stronger connections, screwed versus nailed
