Tech Note S300-21: Coordinating Cold-Formed with Metal Buildings


Summary: This Technical Note presents a discussion of both the design responsibilities and the need for coordination when integrating field-framed, i.e., stick-built, cold-formed steel (CFS) framing with a metal building system. Important potential coordination topics connection details and design concepts are highlighted.

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
