The U.S. Navy and Cold Formed Steel

Cold-formed steel has many uses, including being a quick way for the US Navy to build structures wherever they may be.

Resistant to the elements, steel framing can be shipped anywhere in the world without being damaged. The footprint of the framing when shipped is smaller than standard wood framing.

Naval construction groups have added cold-formed steel framing fabrication to their training. With machines on the ground in areas suffering from natural disasters, a small building can be created in a matter of hours.
