Light Gauge Steel Portals
Posted on 9th July 2023 at 10:44
Working with our friends and colleagues at Design Automation Systems we are getting closer to releasing our All Singing, All Dancing LGS Portal Design Tool with automated engineering and modelling for estimation and design / manufacture.
Thanks to the efforts of the guys at Design Automation Systems we have a new video our offering. The video demonstrates:
Wind loading using our Breve software using a Post Code look up
User entering building dimensions - including openings for doors
User selecting intial profiles for columns, rafters, purlins & rails and Gable posts
Pass / Fails and ratio's
Full Structural Calculations Report including concrete slab design
CAD / BIM model generation
If you're interested in any of the tools demonstrated singly or as a package contact us for more information or to request a demonstration in person, or via a Video Chat, or a sample design.
Light Gauge Steel Portals are ideal just at the point when 'Traditional Hot Rolled Steel Portal Frames' starting becoming less economical due to the minimum steel section sizes available in Hot Rolled Steel and fixing spacing requirements.
Light Gauge Steel, while it doesn't have 'standardised dimensions' or profiles, does have a widely available range of profiles from 70mm upto 400mm+ and from 1mm gauge to 5mm, though this is pushing the limits of 'Light Gauge Steel' in our opinion!
