The structure of a house in steel is durable and, at the same time, elastic. Thanks to these features and the respect for all the specific regulations, the construction system finds its most interesting applications in the anti-seismic context. Homes realized with the system of cold-formed steel has unique mechanical properties in terms of strength, rigidity, and pliancy, making homes resistant to earthquakes of high intensity.
In the case of an earthquake, the structure is able to overcome the stresses induced by earthquakes, guaranteeing the safety of those who live there and remaining immune from structural damages that could affect its static nature even after the seismic event.
After an earthquake, the restoration of the interior finishes will be small or none, unlike traditional building structures, even though a collapse can be avoided and the safety of the inhabitants can be certain, it will still require heavy repair work.
