The Tools You Need to Succeed


When it comes to designing, selling, specifying, and building a successful business around cold-formed steel framing, you can look to the Steel Framing Industry Association for a broad array of tools and resources to make your job easier. Use the SFIA Technical Guide for Cold-Formed Steel Framing Products for typical details and more than 80 load and span tables for walls, floors and ceilings. To help specifiers avoid lost time from out of date or incorrect construction documents, use the guide specifications. Another resource available is the Building Officials’ Guide to Field inspections, which can help smooth site reviews. With SFIA, you can take the mystery out of how to qualify for LEED v4 credits with LEED with CFS Steel. SFIA members can help their customers learn how to cut their insurance costs with the Zurich/US Assure builders risk program and Insurance Savings with Cold-Formed Steel. Members can also utilize educational videos on a wide range of topics, webinars, market data reports, and AIA/CES-approved presentations. Learn more about what is available to you at
