Welded Steel Versus Metal Stud

When thinking about whether or not welded steel is the way to go, think of it as an investment. Structural steel is relatively simple to pre-fabricate offsite, rather than building on-site welding during the building process; this saves time and makes for more efficient construction time. Also, metal studs have a lower R-Value. R-Value is the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow; the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Lastly, fine thread screws will hold any material to metal stud, but extra pressure needs to be applied because these are not self-tapping screws. Paradise Grills uses Welded steel which is 10x stronger and is easily movable.
