Aloha and welcome to the 2006/2007 edition of the Hawaii Pacific Steel Framing Alliance Resource Directory. Hawaii has long been a dream destination for travelers and also for builders who come from around the world seeking to learn more of the advantages and popularity of steel framing. Developers and homeowners in Hawaii select steel for many reasons. It is locally manufactured, durable, resistant to fire, insect damage and extreme weather conditions and is cost effective for the long term, giving peace of mind to the homeowner. Construction is a $998 billion industry in North America and is the largest market for steel. Military housing, private residential and nonresidential construction provide significant growth opportunities for steel framing and the companies that support it. In 2005, cold-formed steel framing accounted for about 75 percent of all new housing ventures on the island of Oahu, and as the Hawaii steel framing industry continues to grow, it will provide many opportunities for members and their customers. Hawaii remains the undisputed per-capita world leader in the steel framing industry. The focus of the Hawaii Pacific Steel Framing Alliance (HPSFA) is to encourage and further promote the use of steel framing among designers, builders and owners. Through the dissemination of Steel Framing Alliance (SFA) product testing and information, facilitation of training and education, sponsorship of research and testing, coordination of the sharing of ideas and methods, and its participation in trade shows, the HPSFA helps its membership advance to the forefront of home building in the Pacific Rim. Every year is another big step advancing the alliance’s mission. Our membership is growing every year on Oahu and on the outer islands, with a new Big Island chapter formed in 2005. While these companies are all busy servicing their accounts, managing operations and trying to grow their businesses, they understand the value of building technology and the alliance’s wealth of information and resources available to them. Our members consistently participate in our programs and attend our training sessions and meetings to further their knowledge of the trade. With their continued input, our services will evolve to accommodate the ever-changing requirements of the building industry. This resource guide is a valuable primer for all on how to start framing projects, in residential and commercial construction, and as with any construction technology, uses the most updated information and best practices. It is a vehicle for dialogue and an opportunity to learn and grow. The HPSFA is here to provide resources, education, ideas and support to enhance the performance of the product and players in the building industry. We look forward to offering more new ways to engage all players in the building industry to the future of construction – steel framing.

Aloha! Congratulations to the Hawaii Pacific Steel Framing Alliance (HPSFA) for publishing another edition of the Hawaii Pacific Steel Framing Resource Directory. This is a valuable tool for anyone looking to build a home using cold-formed steel framing, consumers and building industry professionals alike. It is also a great example to all of us in North America, presenting a comprehensive guidebook that acts as a one-stop shopping source for residential steel framing. The Steel Framing Alliance (SFA) exists to develop a market environment in which growth in the use of residential steel framing can be rapidly accelerated. One of the ways we are doing this is by helping to develop local alliances just like the HPSFA all around the United States and Canada. In fact, the HPSFA is serving as a model for other developing local markets. The HPSFA has exemplified what an alliance can do when competitors come together with common goals to increase market potential. This is an exciting time to be in the steel framing industry. New organizations and industries are coming together to bring additional resources to the table for expanding this market. With the huge potential for growth in steel-framed housing, the time is right to aggressively expand its use. With the help of alliances across the country, the network of suppliers and contractors will be provided to achieve these goals. The SFA looks forward to working with the HPSFA in the months ahead to provide assistance in helping Hawaii move forward as a vital force in the Pacific Rim. Patronize the members of the HPSFA found in this resource guide. If you have been sitting on the fence, I encourage you to get involved. Sincerely,

AISI Committee on Framing Standards Removing the Guesswork from Cold-Formed Steel Framing Design By Roger A. LaBoube and Jay W. Larson

H

ow many times have you or a colleague lamented that coldformed steel design is complex and not clearly defined? Well, in 1997, the AISI Construction Marketing Committee responded to this common complaint by authorizing the formation of the Committee on Framing Standards (COFS). This was done due to the increased interest in cold-formed steel for residential and light commercial framing (figure one), and the sense that there were a number of design issues that were not being adequately addressed for this emerging market. The COFS established as its mission: “To eliminate regulatory barriers and increase the reliability and cost competitiveness of coldformed steel framing in residential and light commercial building construction through improved design and installation standards.” The committee also established as its primary objective: “To develop and maintain consensus standards for cold-formed steel framing, manufactured from carbon or low alloy flat-rolled steel, that describe reliable and economical design and installation practices for compliance with building code requirements.” The COFS organized itself under the same ANSI-approved operating procedures that govern the Committee on Specifications. These procedures provide for balance between producer, user and general interest categories; voting, including the resolution of negatives; public review, interpretations and appeals. Numerous task groups have been added under various subcommittees; however, the main committee always maintains control of all decisions through the balloting process. By no means has the COFS completed its mission. It continues to improve the existing standards and develop new standards and design support documents. For example, in 2004 and 2005, the COFS developed standards for wall stud design and lateral design and issued an industry code of standard practice.

Figure one: residential cold-formed steel framing

General Provisions The “Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing Design - General Provisions” addresses those things that are common to prescriptive and engineered design. It provides a link between all of the industry stakeholders and code enforcement agencies, ensuring that everyone is “on the same page” with respect to the basic requirements of cold-formed steel framing. It provides general requirements for material, corrosion protection, products, member design, member condition, installation and connections. The general provisions include such information as the importance of ensuring that wall studs have square cut ends and are seated tight and square against the tracks in order to provide for adequate transfer of forces. The maximum gap tolerance of oneeighth inch specified by the general provisions is based on accepted industry practice and is not required for nonstructural walls. The committee is currently considering adding cautionary language to the “General Provisions

Commentary” on the application of this tolerance based on a recent study at the University of Missouri-Rolla. There were two significant changes included in the 2004 edition of the general provisions standard: cutting and cut edge protection, and alignment framing tolerances. Regarding cutting and edge protection, in the section on materials, the standard now states, “Additional corrosion protection is not required on edges of metallic-coated steel framing members, shop or field cut, punched or drilled.” In the section on cutting and patching, the standard now requires that “All cutting of framing members shall be done by sawing, abrasive cutting, shearing, plasma cutting or other approved methods.” These two provisions really go hand-in-hand and recognize zinc’s ability to protect steel galvanically at cut edges when proper cutting techniques are employed. Regarding alignment framing tolerances, based on testing at the University of Waterloo, there is now an additional limitation to address those cases where a bearing stiffener

2006 Hawaii Pacific Steel Framing Alliance Resource Directory 13


is located on the backside of a floor joist. The previous limitation alone, that “each joist, rafter truss and structural wall stud shall be aligned vertically so that the centerline (mid-width) is within three-quarter inch (19 millimeters) of the centerline of the load bearing member beneath,” could result in a significant misalignment in the load path, as shown in figure two. The new limitation prescribes a maximum distance of one-eighth inch (3 mm) from the web of the horizontal framing member to the edge of the vertical framing member, as well, when a bearing stiffener is located on the backside of the horizontal framing member.

Truss Design The “Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing - Truss Design” applies to cold-formed steel trusses used for load carrying purposes in buildings. Without such a document, the industry would be at a significant disadvantage with respect to competitive materials. The truss standard is actually not just for design - it also applies to manufacturing, quality criteria, installation and testing as they relate to the design of cold-formed steel trusses. The requirements of the truss standard apply to both generic C-section trusses and the various proprietary truss systems and were developed, in part, based on extensive research at the University of Missouri-Rolla. For the 2004 edition, the truss standard was revised to recognize the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method. This was not included in the previous edition because the industry is still heavily rooted in Allowable Strength Design (ASD). However, with the elimination of the one-third stress increase from ASD, the industry feels that there may now be more compelling reasons to use LRFD.

very similar to that for double L-headers, except that specific limitations are defined based on what was tested.

Conclusions Figure two: Potential misalignment in load path

giving design professionals the tools they need to design headers over door and window openings in buildings. Three header configurations are addressed by the header standard: back-to-back, box and L-headers. The design methodologies are based on testing by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center, the University of Missouri-Rolla and industry, and were developed under the guidance of Dr. Roger LaBoube of the University of Missouri-Rolla. The header design standard provides general, design and installation requirements. A key aspect of the design provisions is the recognition that these headers are assemblies, and thus to achieve optimum strength and economy, the headers must be designed as assemblies. The only substantive change to the header standard for 2004 was the addition of single L-headers, shown in figure three. Based on testing at the NAHB Research Center, single L-headers will be allowed for openings up to four feet wide. The design methodology is

The American Iron and Steel Institute has effectively leveraged its experience and expertise in standards development to support the growing needs of the cold-formed steel framing industry. The COFS documents are readily available from the American Iron & Steel Institute (www.steel.org) and the Steel Framing Alliance (www. steelframingalliance.com). A subsequent article will provide an overview of the remaining standards. These documents address wall stud design, lateral design, code of standard practice and prescriptive design. Roger A. LaBoube is director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures on the campus of the University of MissouriRolla, Rolla, MO. He can be reached at laboube@umr.edu. Jay W. Larson is Director, Construction Standards Development, for the American Iron and Steel Institute, Washington, D.C. He can be reached at jlarson@steel.org.

Acknowledgements The members of the committee, subcommittees and task groups responsible for bringing these standards to fruition are to be commended for their time and effort. It is through the participation of representatives from steel producers, fabricators, users, educators, researchers and building code officials in this consensus process that such progress is made. The partner organizations, Steel Framing Alliance, Light Gauge Steel Engineers Association, Steel Stud Manufacturers Association, Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute and Center for Cold Formed Steel Structures are to be thanked for their active participation.


Benefits of Framing with Steel STEEL: Feel the Strength

Steel is a uniform material. • Steel is roll formed into shapes with precise tolerances. • There is very little contraction or expansion with steel. • The sections maintain their exact shape and size. • Steel maintains its true shape. • Steel does not shrink or expand when subjected to moisture changes caused by preservative treatments, rain or changes in humidity. • The sections are straight and do not require sorting or special handling to ensure for crown. • No knots, warping, twisting, splitting or cracking • Excellent quality for the homeowner • Straight walls and ceilings • Aesthetically pleasing surfaces

Steel is the most recycled material in the world. • Steel is 100 percent recyclable. • Steel framing materials contain at least 25 percent recycled steel. • A steel-framed house may contain the equivalent of six scrapped automobiles. • Seventy-six million tons of steel scrap was recycled in 2004, more than paper, aluminum, glass and plastic combined. • Steel industry reaches new milestone in energy efficiency: 23 percent improvement in energy. • After a steel-framed house is retired, it can also be recycled! • Builders can reduce their disposal costs and divert material from local landfills.

What about fire? • Steel-framed houses are fire resistant. • Studs, joists and rafters do not add fuel to a fire. • A third of all fires start in the wall cavity. • Steel-framed houses do not “melt” in a fire. Framing members can resist up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. • Actual case studies show steel houses perform very well in house fires, with little or no damage to the framing structure. • Houses framed completely out of steel can qualify for lower insurance rates.

Steel is ‘green.’ • Steel offers builders an environmentally-friendly alternative to other building materials. • There is little waste when using steel framing materials. • Steel has optimized value engineering, recycled content, recyclability, termite resistance and durability.

Termite facts • There are over 1,900 species of termites in the world. • The most commonly found termites in Hawaii are the Drywood and Formosan Subterranean species. • A well-fed Formosan queen can live for 20 years and lay 2,000 eggs a day. • Each nest has three kinds of termites: reproducers, workers and soldiers. • The winged termites are the reproductive stage of the termite. Termites swarm to find a mate and form new nests usually from March to June.


Termite prevention • In Hawaii, termites are a major concern. $100 million is spent in Hawaii each year for prevention, control and repair. You do not have to worry about insecticides or other treatments. This is a sure guaranty of 50 years minimum. • The best time to protect against termites is during the planning and construction phase. • The best answer is steel. Steel framing provides a termite-proof solution for the structural integrity of your home.

What about rust? • In order for galvanized steel to rust, there must be water present. If there is no water, no rust. • Steel framing members in wall cavities, attic spaces or crawl spaces that are not exposed to water will last over 100 years. • Forensic studies recently conducted on Oahu residences built over 30 years ago showed steel wall studs with no visible signs of corrosion except in areas with plumbing leaks. • Zinc coating protects steel by providing a physical barrier as well as cathodic protection to the underlying steel. When the base steel is exposed, such as at a cut or scratch, the steel is cathodically protected by the sacrificial corrosion of the zinc coating adjacent to the steel. • “No Water = No Rust”

What about lightning? • Steel-framed houses do not attract lightning strikes. • In the event of a strike, the steel frame offers occupants more protection with several ground paths. • The steel frame reduces the likelihood of explosions, secondary fires or personal injury. • Steel skyscrapers in Honolulu have provided occupants with safe offices and residences for years.

Earthquakes or hurricanes? • A steel-framed home can be engineered for the highest seismic rating given by code. • Steel’s strength and resiliency help it to survive the strongest earthquakes. • A steel-framed home can be engineered for the highest wind loads given by code. • Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any framing material. • For generations we have relied on the strength and durability of steel in our commercial buildings, hospitals and schools.

How easy is it to remodel my home? • Steel framing can be used for additions and renovations for existing wood houses, especially those with termite damage. • Screwed connections make it easy to move walls and for other renovations in the future.

Breathe easier... • The Healthy House Institute recommends steel framing for good indoor air quality. • Chemically-sensitive homeowners and those susceptible to asthma are exposed to less allergens in a steel- framed home. • The American Lung Association encourages the use of steel framing with its Health House program.

Steel is strong and straight. • Steel framing has the highest strength-to-weight ratio to any building material. • It does not rot, warp, split, crack or creep. • Steel does not expand or contract with moisture content. • Using steel framing virtually eliminates nail pops and drywall cracking.

Right STUF To avoid costly errors, know and use the Right STUF!

T

he Steel Stud Manufacturers Association (SSMA) endeavors to supply products that meet or exceed standards established by national, state and local code bodies and by recognized industry associations. These products recognized by ICBO Evaluation Service of the SSMA comply with the Uniform Building Code and have a four-part identification code which identifies the size (both depth and flange width), style and material thickness of each member. See ICBO ES Evaluation Report No. 4943P. Visit www.ssma.com. Member Depth:

Flange Width:

(Example: 6 inches = 600 x 1/100 inches) All member depths are taken in 1/100 inch. For all “T� sections member depth is the inside to inside dimension.

(Example: 1 5/8 inches= 1.625 inches= 162 x 1/100 inches) All flange widths are taken in 1/100 inch.

Style: (Example: Stud or Joist section = S) The four alpha characters utilized by the designator system are: S = Stud or Joist Sections T = Track Sections U = Channel Sections F = Furring Channel Sections

Material Thickness: (Example: 0.054 inch = 54 mils; 1 mil = 1/1000 inch) Material thickness is the minimum base metal thickness in mils. Minimum base metal thickness represents 95 percent of the design thickness. Note: For those sections where two different yield strengths 33 kips (thousands of pounds) per square inch (ksi) are shown, the yield strength used in the design, if greater than 33 ksi, needs to be identified on the design and ordering of steel (i.e., 600S162-54 {50ksi}).

Why is Steel So Popular?

S

teel framing is continuing to grow in popularity. In fact, there are a number of good reasons why steel is being used in more commercial and residential structures than ever before.

Steel is durable. • Steel is one of the most important and widely used structural materials in the world and always has been an ideal choice for those who demand strength and long life for their products. • Steel framing systems offer usable life spans of at least 50 years or more. As a result, it adds significantly to the resale value of a building in either the residential or commercial sector. • Steel is not vulnerable to insects, mold or rot. Therefore, it does not require the application of insecticides or other chemicals. Moreover, steel does not host allergens or other irritants. This makes steel the best choice for “green” buildings, where the goal is to reduce or eliminate the introduction of chemical substances. • Steel’s light weight is an important advantage. For both commercial and residential framing applications, steel studs and tracks often can be installed with little or no modification. This saves time and labor as well as the cost of cleanup and disposal.

store. Many manufacturers offer valuable training and support in both design and installation. • The steel industry is no longer a labor-intensive unskilled environment. Steel production today requires a skilled and intelligent workforce with a high degree of qualifications. The rapid change in technology requires lifelong learning and retraining. • The initial price difference between steel and other materials continues to shrink due in large measure to dramatic increases in productivity and efficiency in the industry. In the last 15 years alone, the North American steel industry has invested more than $50 billion in new facilities and technologies to streamline production. Labor productivity has more than doubled since 1982, further increasing steel’s overall value.

Steel is recyclable. • Steel is recyclable. In fact, steel is virtually 100 percent recyclable, and many manufacturers use as much as 50 percent recycled materials in the steel-making process. Industry wide, the overall recycling rate for steel is 77 percent – higher than paper, plastic and glass. And while most other materials are degraded in the recycling process, steel can be recycled over and over again without ever losing quality.

Steel is fire resistant. • Steel framing offers a higher thermal performance, dissipating heat quickly in warm climates like Hawaii. Moreover, steel framing works well with all types of insulation in whatever thicknesses are optimum for the design. • Steel will not burn, making it ideal for applications in areas that are prone to wildfires. In addition, steel’s fire resistance can help slow the spread of fire within a building, too. Insurance ratings for builders and homeowners are significantly less because steel is noncombustible.

Contractor benefits • Not only are steel panels light in weight and easy to handle, they also are cheaper to ship and convenient to 2006 Hawaii Pacific Steel Framing Alliance Resource Directory 21
