Panchakanya Structural Steel is a long term project for constructing.,
Traditional Nepali houses
Panchakanya Steel Structure (PSS) presents the first of its kind multi purpore Light Gauge Steel Structure. It is developed through a cold-formed process without the use of heat.
The frame of steel parts is first constructed, and then clad with dry sheeting on both sides to form a load bearing wall. The important feature of steel framing is its flexibility. It can bend without cracking, which is another great advantage, as a steel building can flex when it is pushed to one side by say, wind, or an earthquake. The characteristic of steel is its plasticity or ductility. This means that when subjected to great force; it will not suddenly crack like glass, but slowly bend out of shape. This property allows steel buildings to bend out of shape, or deform, thus giving warning to inhabitants to escape. Failure in steel frames is not sudden - a steel structure rarely collapses. Steel in most cases performs far better in earthquake than most other materials because of these properties.
Contractors will usually order pre-punched sections - sections with factory-made holes in them - so that wires and plumbing can be easily passed through the walls. The gaps between members are filled with insulation. This form of construction can also be used for non-structural framing, such as interior partitions or external cladding. In fact, this form of construction was originally developed for interior partitions in offices.
