We manufacture our steel wall frames and roof trusses from BlueScope's TRUECORE® steel which is coated in a protective coating that includes zinc and magnesium, and has self healing properties to fight corrosion of the steel. This protection is due to a natural phenomenon known as sacrificial protection which prevents the corrosion of steel at any exposed cut edges or penetrations.
Steel frames by nature are far safer than their timber alternatives, due to the physical properties of carbon steel. Not only are steel wall frames and roof trusses fire resistant, they also are far stronger when it comes to cyclonic conditions due to the strength of the steel and the connections used.
Prefabricated and millimetre accurate, steel wall frames and roof trusses are straight and true resulting in strong lines and a beautiful finish. Our steel wall frames and roof trusses won’t shrink, twist or warp over time, so there’s less chance of sticking windows, jammed doors and wavy roof lines.
Termites are a problem in Australia, so its good news that steel wall frames and roof trusses are 100% termite resistant. And BlueScope TRUECORE® steel isn’t treated with insecticides to keep termites from eating your frame, so it’s an ideal choice if you want to minimise the use of insecticides when building your home.
