Standards for Cold-Formed Steel:  Clarifying the Latest Landscape

A webinar of the SFIA Forum for CFS industry outreach and Input

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

2:00 to 3:00 pm (EDT)

More than one well-known coach has stated that the “Standard is the Standard” when talking about new players stepping into the starting lineup.  New participants have to meet the same requirements.  Do we have that same outlook about standards that govern cold-formed steel?  Considering the diminishing role of ASTM’s standards over the past few years as AISI standards have been inserted into the line-up, it will pay to have a good understanding of what standards apply, what they cover, and any important changes from the latest editions.  
There are not many people as well positioned as Dr. Roger A. LaBoube to bring clarity to issues surrounding CFS and the governing standards. SFIA is proud to bring Dr. LaBoube’s perspective and experience to you in a live presentation as part of the continuing series of webinars under the SFIA Forum.

Join us on May 5, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (EDT) for this informative discussion.
