The metal frame house


  • Resistance and durability  

Metal frame houses have a lifespan of approximately  100 years. the  metal  offers greater weather resistance than wood or brick. Steel is resistant to rain and wind, but also water damage. The process of  galvanization  gives the metal framework great resistance to attack. They are particularly resistant to rust, termites and fungi.

Metal also has the advantage of not deforming and not expanding.

  • Lightness

Metal structures are self-supporting and are  25% lighter  than wooden structures. This avoids having to build many load-bearing walls. This also makes it possible to carry out any type of development and facilitates the completion of extension work.

  • Ecological  

Metal frame houses offer excellent energy performance. They are suitable for  passive houses, which do not use a heating system. These constructions are also suitable for low carbon positive energy houses.

In addition, 85% of the steel used for the construction of metal frames is recycled. They do not require any chemical treatment or heat treatment.

  • Minimum maintenance

A metal frame house requires very little maintenance. This is an investment solution when you want to reduce maintenance costs. 

 

THE ADVANTAGES OF METAL FRAMING

Earthquake resistant

Efficient transportation

Sustainable

 

With nearly 10% of individual houses built in France,  the metal frame house  has found its place in the  French landscape. But its architectural, ecological and modular potential makes it an underexploited habitat type.

The metal frame house  is built in the same way as a timber frame house. With the difference that the frame and all the framework is made from steel. Like the wooden house, the steel frame house is made up of elements prefabricated in the factory which will be assembled quickly on the site.

The stages of  fabrication of a metal frame house  :


1. Build the foundations  (on concrete or slab pedestals) and  climb the floor  on insulating slabs

2. Assemble the framework  by fixing the walls and trusses together by bolting

3. Install the insulation  exterior walls (from the exterior or the interior)

4. Install the carpentry and the roof: the house is out of water

5. Install the interior partitions and technical ducts  (electricity, plumbing, ventilation)

6. Level the ground  to accommodate the floor covering

7. Carry out the finishing work  (paintings ...)

If this type of house is more and more appreciated, it is largely thanks to the lightness of its frame, which precisely offers a great diversity of architectural possibilities. The large span of the beams, as mentioned above, allows us to offer you various styles of metal structures, ranging from simple shapes to complex shapes. Also thanks to the lightness of the structure, it is possible to exploit a wide variety of terrains.
In addition, the ecological footprint of the metal frame house is very low and therefore allows you to have eco-responsible driving. Likewise, unlike concrete, steel is a fully recyclable material which, when it is in nature, is no longer considered as construction waste.
This type of house adapts to particularly delicate grounds. The installation of the metal house is easier, because it obeys standardized procedures, perfectly mastered by Maison Premium, builder of metal frame houses in the PACA region and surroundings. In addition, its installation causes little dust emissions, just as it complies with earthquake standards.
The durability of metal is also a strong point of the metal frame house. This is one of the reasons home builders appreciate this material. It resists in fact the most difficult weather conditions. Against gust of wind, snowfall, sun, storm, tornado, he remains insensitive. It is less prone to corrosion.
To this must be added the flexibility of the interior walls of the house in metal frame, and the fact that the process of their installation is cheaper than in the case of interior walls of other building models.
