Accessories Packages

VanderWal Homes & Commercial Group Inc.  provides a range of cold-formed steel accessories with its customized framing systems and specializes in providing one-stop, turnkey structural framing packages.  

Accessory packages vary depending on the specified components and standard materials often include hold-down clips, connector clips, bracing, blocking, bridging and strapping, all included as part of the project quote as and when required.  Similar to our structural framing materials, accessories are zinc-treated for longevity.

All of our accessory products can be made available to our clients and at their request additional materials can be provided for use outside of our scope.


An array of assemblies and applications necessitate a wide variety of sheathing materials.  To maximize the benefit from prefabricated cold-formed steel components VanderWal Homes & Commercial Group Inc. offers to include a variety sheathing materials on panelized assemblies.

The versatility of cold-formed steel framing easily accommodates a wide selection of sheathings to be utilized as part of the assemblies.  From standard materials like structural metal decking and exterior-grade gypsum board to specialty products like structural floor panels, we can work with you to provide a solution that best fits your project.


As more and more building owners seek to condense the construction schedule while still demanding products of the highest quality, a significant shift to offsite assembly is occurring in the construction industry.  VanderWal Homes & Commercial Group Inc. has introduced a pre-insulated prefabricated cold-formed steel wall panel system that incorporates a closed cell polyurethane spray foam applied to the backside of the exterior sheathing within the wall cavity.  

By incorporating this layer of insulation in the prefabricated panel assembly, the insulation is installed in a carefully controlled factory environment and an onsite trade is completely eliminated from the schedule.  

This pre-insulated cold-formed steel panel system allows owners to maximize quality while eliminating onsite labour and reducing install time.  This results in faster overall building completions and a more-timely Return On Investment (ROI) for the owner.
