Our commercial grade galvanized structural steel has some major benefits.
Firstly, the price:
Steel is competitive against timber stick frame and with a shorter build time, there is less labor to pay for.
Peace of mind:
It will not rot, warp or expand, so the structure stays watertight. And because it won’t rot, it’s also healthier to live in. Steel is resistant to fire, as well as borer and termites. A solid investment!
Our commercial grade galvanized structural steel is sustainable and a great environmental choice. There is also no waste. Every piece is cut to precise length, punched, pre-drilled, labelled and assembled before it leaves the factory.
In summary, the benefits of a light gauge steel frame are:
No Toxic Chemicals
Steel is not treated with dangerous and often toxic chemicals.
Steel’s quality is consistent. No bowing, bending, warping, twisting or movement.
No Rot or Rust
Steel is not affected by rain and no drying required prior to construction. Steel is not subject to rot or rust
Steel is non-combustible therefore a lower fire risk
Steel is environmentally friendly and the most recycled material in the world
No Health Issues
Steel use does not lead to health issues. (i.e. resulting from sawing/handling chemically treated timber)
Steel framing is a lot lighter than timber, therefore less weight results in less foundation movement.
