Why ABS?

ABS prefabricated structural light gauge steel framing panels systems avails its clients many benefits to lower holding and operating cost while increasing the Project’s value, investment CAP rate and ROI :

  • Speed to Market (generate revenue sooner through the reduction in the construction schedule by a minimum of 2 weeks per level savings)
  • Height Advantage (increase projects’ density up to 11 stories without resorting to more expensive structural systems such as Concrete or Structural Steel)
  • Insurance Reduction (because ABS system is noncombustible, there is a reduction in the course of construction and long term insurance by as much as 75% savings)
  • Fire Resistance (in addition to being noncombustible, ABS system doesn’t provide the fuel to the fire in addition to reducing the fire rating and fire sprinkler requirements)
  • Better Seismic Performance (ABS system provide a lighter, safer, reliable and ductile structures which has great historical performance in earthquakes)
  • Eliminates Termite (ABS system is not organic and doesn’t provide a food source for termite)
  • Sustainable (ABS uses recycled steel which is one of the most sustainable building materials in the world.
  • Lower Structural Weight (ABS structures require less material (both reduced weight and reduced volume) to carry the same loads as concrete or masonry or wood structures.
  • Better Finishes  (ABS system is dimensionally stable: it will not warp, split, or creep – making it durable and built to last. Minimize cracking and pops in drywall and other finishes with CFS framing.
  • Longevity (ABS system is durable, safe, and strong. It is not susceptible to rot, termites, or mold. Steel used for ABS framing will last from hundreds to over a thousand years due to its zinc coating, a natural element)
