Metsec / SFS.

Metsec or a Heavy Gauge SFS (Steel Framing System) is becoming more and more common in buildings where they require the construction to be rapid and have load bearing properties. SFS can be used in a number of construction applications like the external cladding of a building whereas you have a concrete slab top and bottom, you fix your stud and with various applications for the external facade which is usually types of plaster or stone, you then achieve a weatherproof structure.

You can then insulate the cavity and fix plasterboard, or a specialised board to the inside of the structure to achieve fire or sound properties.

SFS can also be used where a very high building needs division walls in the likes of the aerospace industry or pharmaceutical buildings.
