Light Steel Infill Walls (ED013)

Infill walling is the generic name given to external walls that are built between the floors of the primary structural frame of a building and which provide support for the cladding system. Infill walls do not support floor loads but they resist wind loads applied to the façade. Light steel infill walls using vertical C section studs are increasingly used within both steel and concrete-framed buildings, and have largely replaced masonry or timber alternatives.
