LGS Technology

  • Light gauge steel is a viable alternative to conventional building materials used in residential, light commercial and mid-rise construction, for reason of energy efficiency, fast track, cost effective and superior behavior during earthquake.
  • Light gauge steel sections are increasingly being used as primary structural members, such as beams, oor joists, and columns, or as load-bearing walls or partitions in residential, commercial and high-rise buildings.
  • Light gauge steel framing is a term commonly used to refer to steel members with thicknesses ranging from 0.50 to 1.6 (and up to 2 mm) that are produced by roll forming machines.
  • Construction can use individual light steel components or sub frames; often prefabricated screwed panels are assembled on site using self-drilling screws to create whole building structures.
  • Steel-framed structures are built using light gauge steel shapes. The walls and oors consist of shapes arranged at a spacing of typically 300 to 600 mm on centre, to which structural cladding (such as pre-painted steel sheets, plywood, cement board, gypsum board, or the like) is attached with screws.
  • The light gauge structure and the face materials (pre-painted steel sheets, plywood, cement board, gypsum board, etc.) demonstrate its structural strength and fire resistance.
  • The LGS system is the fastest way there is to design and build strong, durable steel framed buildings easily and efficiently.
  • The core of PEBi Technology is using load-bearing wall steel profiles, slabs, galvanized light gauge steel structures 0.75-1.55 mm thick with lightweight concrete (made from Foam & EPS Grain with cement sand mix) reinforced by these steel profiles.
  • The framework has adequate load-bearing capacity to support the structural loads.
  • Cement Fiber board are screwed to the exterior and interior surface of the steel profiles. Adhesive produced by Cement fiber board manufacturer is applied for vertical and horizontal joints between the blocks. Hollow space is filled with monolithic lightweight concrete mortar.

Why LGS?

Steel Is Superior Construction Material
  • Highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material 100% recyclable.
  • Non-combustible- does not burn and will not contribute fuel to the spread of a fire
  • Inorganic – will not rot, warp, split, crack or creep.
  • Dimensionally stable – does not expand or contract with moisture content.
  • Consistent material quality – produced in strict accordance with national standards, no regional variations.
  • Environment Friendly
  • Greater Design Flexibility
Benefits To Customer
  • High strength results in safer structures, less maintenance and slower aging of structure. PEBI gives 50 years structural warranty · Fire safety upto 4 hours with Infill System
  • Not vulnerable to termites.
  • Not vulnerable to any type of fungi or organism.
  • Least probability of foundation problems – less weight results in less movement.
  • Least probability of damage in an earthquake – lighter structure with stronger connections results in less seismic force.
  • Least probability of damage in high winds – stronger connections, Structure can be designed up to wind speed of 200 km/h
  • Energy Efficiency-Saves 24% electricity cost in summer and 57% in winter Thermal Resistivity for LGS Wall 13.01 hr*ft2*°F/Btu
  • Thermal Resistivity for LGS Roof 13.47 hr*ft2*°F/Btu
  • Thermal Resistivity for 9” Thick Brick wall 2.93hr*ft2*°F/Btu
  • Thermal Resistivity for RCC Roof 2.37 hr*ft2*°F/Btu
  • End Value: Down the life of building it will pay well
