LEED®ing with Cold-Formed Steel:  Cold-formed steel products manufactured by Steel Framing Industry Association members help your project quality for up to:
  • Up to 9  points under LEED® v4 for BD+C

Resilient Cold-Formed Steel
:  Strong, noncombustible, ductile, recyclable, and durable.  Cold-formed steel framing meets society’s need for sustainable construction – and the worst the Mother Nature can bring to bear.

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Cold-Formed Steel Framing EPDs are developed from a Life Cycle Assessment and can help designers earn credits under LEED v4.  This EPD represents cold-formed steel (CFS) studs and track made from hot-dip galvanized steel, produced and manufactured in U.S. and Canada. The steel in the studs and track is produced at a mix of steel mill types in the U.S. and Canada, which use both the BOF (basic oxygen furnace) and EAF (electric arc furnace) route for steelmaking.
