The Southern African Light Steel Frame Building Association (Sasfa) is presenting a light steel frame (LSF) building training course in Kwazulu-Natal this month.

Motivated by an escalating demand for information on LSF building, the six-day course will take place from July 25 to 30 at business solutions provider Saint-Gobain’s training facility outside Durban.

Sasfa will present the course in collaboration with Saint-Gobain, building product suppliers Everite and Hilti, as well as fluid control products distributor Speedfit Africa. Each company will be responsible for presenting different sections of the course.

Aimed at new, as well as practising, LSF building contractors, the course covers all aspects of LSF building.

Sasfa states that, on successful completion of the course, candidates will understand the relevant properties of steel and the process of manufacturing steel frames. They will also be able to correctly erect a simple LSF structure, as well as plan and supervise cladding, lining and insulation installations and services.

Sasfa director John Barnard says a certificate of successful completion will be awarded to qualifying candidates. “After completion of at least two building projects, candidates can apply for temporary accreditation as LSF builders,” he says.
