Can Commercial Steel Stud Framing be Made as Energy Efficient as Wood?
When it comes to building materials, wood is often associated with energy efficiency due to its natural insulation properties. However, steel stud framing has been gaining popularity as an alternative option in commercial construction due to its strength and durability.
The Environmental Benefits of Steel Stud Framing.
Steel stud framing is a more environmentally friendly option as compared to traditional wood framing. This is because steel stud frames, unlike wooden frames, do not contribute to deforestation. Trees cut down for lumber take decades to grow back, and the depletion of forests can have major consequences on our planet.
A significant portion of steel produced worldwide comes from recycled material, lowering the carbon footprint while reducing waste in landfills.
Additionally, incorporating techniques such as cavity wall spray foam insulation or blown-in cellulose fiber can also improve energy efficiency. These methods fill gaps within walls and reduce air infiltration for improved thermal performance.
