is an industrialised constructive system
with origin in the USA that has gained prominence in the construction market in Portugal. Due to the various advantages it offers, it is a system widely used
in countries such as the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Japan, and many European and South American countries. The Light Steel Framing system is characterized by a light structure of galvanized steel profiles
, which work together to support the building. This structure is complemented by OSB plates or cementitious plates, bolted directly to the structure profiles.The Light Steel Framing system enables buildings to have the same final appearance of conventional construction
