Why build with Light Gauge Steel? It is more environmentally friendly

With LGS construction, 85% of the steel used is recyclable

85% of the steel produced by Central Steel Framing is recyclable at the end of a building cycle.

Steel is the world’s most recycled material with more than 500 million tonnes recycled every year - the equivalent of 180 Eiffel Towers every day!

Around 85% of steel is recyclable at the end of a building lifespan1 and it can continue to be recycled infinitely with no degradation. LGS framing contains a minimum of 25% recycled steel2, making it a more environmentally friendly option than traditional methods of building.
