What is Light Steel?
It’s a steel structure that is made out of galvanized steel profiles connected together with bolts, using only Light Steel we can build a structure up to eight-storey.
The system created by steel sheets, sheet openings vary between 1 – 4 mm, steel sheet thickness, 60 mm – 400 mm profile wide U, C and Sigma profile.
Light Steel Project Planning
With our Furat Yapi Project department, our structures are not only suitable for Turkish standards but also for BSI, EUROCODE, AISI standards.
Light Steel Wall System
Our galvanized profile carrier system covered with A1 Fireproof 10 mm or 8 mm Fibre-cement boards.
Light Steel Roofing System
The carrier galvanized steel roof construction system is covered with (Shingle)
Light Steel Roof Covering Options
Painted galvanized trapezoidal sheet, Sandwich Roofing Panel, Onduline, Metal Tile and etc.
Light Steel Structures Insulation
Inside the wall construction, we use Rockwool or wall type Glasswool insulation materials.
Inside the roof construction, we use Glasswool blanket, Rockwool insulation materials or Sandwich Roofing Panel.
We build the real value
Light Gauge Steel Buildings are the best solution for construction in earthquake areas due to their high resistance against earthquakes, steel buildings are 5 times lighter than reinforced concrete buildings and Steel absorbs most of the earthquake energy.
Steel frame buildings have survived very severe earthquakes with very minor damages in comparison with buildings made of Concrete, steel frame buildings can be easily repaired within a short period of time without involving much money.
90 % Recyclable
Light Steel is one of the most sustainable construction materials. Its strength and durability with its ability to be recycled, again and again, without ever losing quality.
Light Gauge Steel provides high quality for reasonable prices and shorten the construction period to a great extent.
Light Steel Structures can be built and manufactured very fast comparing to concrete structures. Which allows us to get work done sooner than concrete structures.
Light Steel Structure system enables architectural and design flexibility.
No Lightning Risks
The energy of the lightning is conducted straight to the ground and is not released destructively within the frame.
Less Material Waste
Light Steel Structures reduced the waste generated in constructions.
The bearing system consists of purlin, truss, frame, column, beam and galvanised steel profiles produced by Furat Yapi Structure Robot technology which is combined by bolted joint and apparatus.
