Cold-formed steel cassette wall construction is a relatively new modern technology but fast gaining in popularity in the steel construction industry. Steel cassettes are modern cold-formed steel profiles used for load-bearing wall panels in low-rise buildings. This paper reviews the major developments in the theory and practice of steel cassette wall construction. After series of research efforts, coupled with the testimonies of industry practitioners, the steel cassette wall system was developed as a good alternative to the use of the traditional wall studs in light gauge steel framed buildings. Wall studs are old-fashioned and cumbersome to handle whereas steel cassettes are light, durable and aesthetically appealing. This paper also acknowledges the deficiencies in the existing design approach of the cassette wall systems and what the research community is doing to address this challenge.
