Structural steel framing may be concealed or exposed. Exposed framing typically conforms to “architecturally exposed steel” standards. These include tighter tolerances, better welding, and other requirements that are not included in this section but can be added.
Standard steel framing, basic materials, and procedures are specified in Section 05 12 00 – Structural Steel Framing.
