LGS is an abbreviation of Light Gauge Steel(=made of light weight steel framework ), the origin of ceiling and wall bedding material.

Pictures of the construction work example
For bedding of ceiling and wall, wooden material was used long time ago.
But, using wooden material work took much time and costly. Compared with wood, LGS has different properties and a lot of merits, this LGS work is popular widely now.
The merits of LGS work:
・Light and easy for processing, work period is short
The thickness of steel plate is 0.5mm very thin, and light material. As it is light, the load against building such as ceiling or wall is little. It is easy for shop fabrication and site processing.
Good processability itself can directly lead to shortening work period.
・Excels in durability, moisture proofing
As most of all the component parts are steel, it is uneasy to burn and has moisture resisting property.
・Cost saving, environmental friendly too
As the mass production and shortening work period are possible, you can reduce labor cost and it will lead to save cost.
Steel material for LGS can be recycled, so it is an environment friendly material.
As it has such a lot of merits, it is used at a lot of places such as housings, shop and stores, offices and others.
After finish of mounting LGS, we go on sticking on gypsum board(as another name, plaster board) and other bedding board.
Then, that is all for today.
Starting from yesterday, outdoor temperature is further becoming low, isn’t it? So let us take care of our health!
