|Wall structure of light steel Prefab Homes|
The walls of light steel Prefab Homes are mainly composed of wall frame columns, wall top beams, wall bottom beams, wall supports, wall panels and connectors. Light steel villas generally use the inner cross wall as the load-bearing wall of the structure. The wall column is a C-shaped light steel component. The wall thickness is determined according to the load received, usually 0.84-2 mm, and the wall post spacing is generally 400-600 mm.
