Save on Insurance Plans

  • Cold-formed steel (CFS) is non-combustible, which reduces the risk of property loss during construction and over the life of the structure.
  • Reduced risk of property loss leads to lower insurance premiums for builders and owners.

Zurich Builders Risk Plan

  • When it comes to controlling costs on your next commercial or multi-family residential building project, you have choices. Selecting high-quality cold-formed steel over other framing materials is one. Choosing the Zurich Builders Risk Plan is the other. Both are good options in themselves, but together, they create an unprecedented compounded benefit. On every one of your building projects, every time. New consistent classification of steel framing as non-combustible, offered through the Zurich Builders Risk Plan, can reduce your premiums when compared to combustible frame construction.

Steel is Non-Combustable

  • On average, wood structural members or framing rank third as the first-ignited material in home fires according to the National Fire Protection Association.
  • Building with steel can reduce cost of construction insurance as well as homeowner’s insurance premiums.
