Abstract: Lightweight-building systems can be seen more and more often in Hungary.
As one possibility they are used as façade elements of newly built reinforced concrete
skeleton buildings or at the reconstruction of existing ones. The lightweight façade
system, discussed in this paper, contains slotted steel girders. The girders are produced
in Sweden, but due to these special girders the lightweight building system has to
be adapted to Hungarian standards and requirements. To adapt the system the different
building physics properties have to be examined and based on the calculations construction
details must be designed for different types of façades with sectional details and
joints to fit the Hungarian circumstances.
