Light Steel Framing’s overall longevity and ability to withstand harsh natural conditions reduces the need to replace or rebuild in the event of a catastrophe.
Superior strength-to-weight ratio. Genesis Manazil structures can be engineered to withstand extreme loads such as 240km/h (150 mph) winds, zone IV seismic forces under the International Building Code and 1m (3 feet) of snow loading. In high winds conditions, the overall weight of the building has a direct effect on the building's performance in such conditions.
Light-steel is non-combustible and will not contribute to the spread of a fire. As a result, Genesis Manazil can deliver structures that are more fire resistant than those built with wood. This provides not only a safety benefit to the end-users but also an economic benefit since certain insurance companies have recognized the reduced fire risk and provided such end-users with insurance rate reductions.
Insect Damage Resistant
Steel is also impervious to termites. According to the U.S. Forest Service, the cost of controlling termites and repairing their damage is estimated to be US$2 billion per year in the United States along, insect infestation causes more than US$2.5 billion in damages alone in the United States each year. Because Genesis Manazil uses light-steel, which is not a food source for insects such as termites, structures built with the Genesis Manazil technology provide much more resistance against termite damage than structures built with traditional materials, such as wood
Waste and Waste Disposal Costs
Light-steel reduces waste and subsequently waste disposal and removal costs. Using light-steel materials, which are available in coils in various lengths, widths and thicknesses, Genesis Manazil uses its propriety software to integrate computerized data with industrial equipment to cold form light-steel into structural components of exact specifications with limited excess materials produced. This process lowers waste disposal and removal costs.
Allergen-Free, Mold-Free and Toxin free
Light-steel is recognized as an allergen-free, mold-free and toxin-free material. Because of this, the Asthma Society of Canada has endorsed cold form steel as a product that improves a building's indoor air quality, which may benefit allergy and asthma sufferers.
