The Light Steel Frame Association (LSFA) has been established to influence legislation, regulation and to support the overall objectives and growth of the steel framing sector.
LSFA works with light steel framing members to raise awareness of the performance and productivity benefits of steel frames. Robust, dimensionally-stable, moisture-resistant qualities make steel structures fundamental to offsite solutions. LSFA is the representative body for forward-thinking light steel frame manufacturers. We enrich members' provisions through access to industry contacts, technical expertise and market knowledge.
Promoting the industry through marketing and PR activities, our aim is to raise the profile of our members while also promoting the use of steel frame technologies as an essential, sustainable construction material.
We use a range of marketing strategies to enhance the image of steel in construction and obtain more market share for our members.
The Light Steel Frame Association (LSFA) is an organisation established to influence legislation and regulation to support the overall objectives of the steel framing sector. We create greater awareness of the performance and productivity benefits of using offsite steel solutions and supports the drive for sustainable construction in the steel industry. Working with our members we provide access to industry contacts, technical expertise and market knowledge to facilitate growth in market share.
To encourage a collaborative approach LSFA operates under a unilateral membership structure, with one standard fee for all manufacturing members to gain access to an extensive package of benefits. Membership benefits for manufacturing members will focus on manufacturing marketing opportunities and profile-raising initiatives designed to increase market share. Members will also benefit from a range of digital marketing and event opportunities, plus access to media packages and discounts to various events throughout the year.
Fundamental to offsite construction, light steel is ideal for an array of building applications from housing to medical, commercial and leisure sectors. Typically used in building structures, steel framing may be used in panelised or volumetric systems, as well as hybrid structures. Light steel's lightweight, airtightness and thermal benefits make it a frequently specified material across all sectors.
Light steel technologies are ideal for the manufacture of full frames, roofing, modular options and infill wall applications. An adaptable material, steel frame systems are load-bearing, making them suitable for low, medium and high-rise buildings, renovations and extensions.
Steel components can be pre-fabricated into modules offsite or at a low level, reducing the need to work at height. Steel can also be delivered to site when required, reducing the need for onsite storage.
