What are the benefits of building using steel frames?2023-04-10T03:02:04+00:00

In the past 30 years, steel framing has become increasingly popular in Australia for its many benefits, which include:

  • Less on-site waste material
  • Easy to handle & install
  • No dry rot
  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Eco-friendly designs
  • Termite proof
  • Design flexibility
  • Recyclable
  • Less chemical treatments
  • Affordable
 
  • Steel frames don’t shrink, twist or bend over time
  • Steel frames can be prefabricated off site, reducing the amount of on-site labour
  • Non-combustible, which reduces the risk of fire and burning
What can steel frames be used for?2023-04-10T03:07:40+00:00
  • Commercial buildings
  • Remote-area buildings
  • Modular constructions
  • Owner-builder projects
  • Light industrial premises
  • Cladding and façades
  • Multi-residential dwellings
  • High-end custom-built homes

 

Are steel house frames durable?2023-04-10T03:09:56+00:00

Yes, they are. TRUECORE® steel with Activate® technology incorporates a thoroughly tested protective aluminum/zinc/magnesium alloy coating identified by its unique blue resin finish. TRUECORE’s patented Activate® coating technology. Where there are cut edges from drilling or cutting operations, the galvanic action of the coating protects the exposed steel edge against corrosion. across a range of environments and building applications..

How can steel frame buildings be cheaper than other building systems?2023-04-10T03:11:44+00:00

Due to the inherent advantages of steel framing, the overall ‘shell’ construction time is significantly reduced which subsequently reduces the overall construction cost. Other avenues of cost reduction are realised thru:

  1. No additional termite prevention required.
  2. Follow-on building services trades are quicker to install due to the pre-punched service holes in the wall frames, eliminating the need for wall chasing, drilling, or cutting.
  3. All materials are pre-cut off site, further reducing the need for waste disposal and heavy machinery transport.
  4. Steel has a high strength to weight ratio minimizing the requirements of the thicker slabs underneath.
Are steel-framed houses electrically safe?2023-04-10T03:23:30+00:00

With proper permanent earthing and safety switches installed, a steel-framed house is arguably safer than those built from alternative materials. Because steel is an excellent conductor, any electrical shorting will be attracted to the frame and away from other flammable materials, thereby greatly reducing the chance of ignition. Even lightning has less effect on steel, as the current is conducted straight into the ground instead of being dispersed throughout the area.

Where do you source your steel from?2023-04-10T03:25:21+00:00

Our TRUECORE® steel is purchased from BlueScope – an Australian manufacturer. This steel is the market leader and is a high quality, recycled light gauge steel and backed by warranty of up to 50 years.

Do you install?2023-04-10T03:27:25+00:00

Yes, we do install frames. Our In-house installation team is segmented into commercial and residential. Where the installation is complicated and time-critical, our network has multitude of installation partners who can assist in the delivery.

What is involved in detailing?2023-04-10T03:37:00+00:00

Our highly skilled detailers will 3D model all projects using the state-of-the-art EnduroCADD software suites. Before frames/trusses manufacturing commences, the developed model captures the client’s vision and ensures that all details are correct and precise following a rigorous detailing quality check. Once the client approves the model, the job will be released for rolling and assembly. 

What is the process of producing the frames/trusses/joists?2023-04-10T03:56:58+00:00

Step One: Estimation

Step Two: Order confirmation and deposit payment.

Step Three: Engineering and Detailing

Step Four: Production

Step Five: Delivery to site

Step Six: Installation

How good is the acoustic performance of steel frames?2023-04-10T03:58:33+00:00

Traditionally, it has been construed that steel frames produce noise due to their expansion and contraction. Studies by CSIRO have shown that movement caused by changes in temperature do not produce any noticeable noise in a properly insulated and constructed home. In fact, as the frames aren’t directly exposed to the sun, they are less likely to be affected by any significant heat changes.

Are steel frames proven over time?2023-04-10T04:07:06+00:00

Steel framing has been successfully used in housing since the early 1950’s and in recent years has gained substantial popularity. Almost all well-known and reputable Australian builders are recognising the benefits of building steel framed houses.
