What Are The Benefits of Using Steel?

Why Should I Build With Steel?

Steel is the product to use in house framing to help protect the long-term investment of the home owner. It is lightweight and strong, won't burn, is termite and borer proof and won't shrink, warp or twist - so the structure is maintained for future generations of your family.

A Steel House Is Built To Last

Besteel House and Light Industrial Building Framing are manufactured from the highest standard of Coil Steel. The frames do not rust, absorb moisture, dry out, rot, twist, expand or shrink out of shape, and cannot burn. This increase in durability compared to a conventional timber house results in fewer call backs and a very high standard quality of finish and investment.

Simple, Easy & Efficient to Erect

Pre-fabrication and modern fixing techniques make construction simple. The lightweight construction allows easy handling on site, while the inherent strength of Besteel Frames eliminates the requirement of cyclone rods in the construction process. All components are clearly identified to ensure correct erection sequence, with pre-punched service holes for entry of all your plumbing and electrical needs.

Why Won't A Steel Frame Rust?

The steel used to make our products has a protective zinc/aluminium coating. Used in roofing applications where it is exposed to the elements it has excellent durability, So, in the less exposed internal building frame it gives longer service when installed to specification. At drill holes and cut edges, the galvanic action of the coating protects the exposed steel edge against corrosion, along with Nylon Grommets for protection in electrical and plumbing service holes.

Termite Proof

Steel is impervious to termite attack and qualifies as a termite resistant material under the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The BCA states that if you build with a steel frame, you do not have to install physical or chemical barriers. The reality is that steel framing provides in-built structural protection for home owners and builders. (Termites cannot eat steel). Interest in steel framing to avoid the danger of termites attacking the structure of a home has escalated since the ban on organochlorine soil treatments from July 1995.

Warranties

Jobs produced in Bluescope Truecore steel coil are provided with a 50 year warranty.

There are generally two types of warranty available to BlueScope™ Steel customers. Material Warranties cover the materials (such as COLORBOND® steel) that certain steel products are made from. Performance Warranties are offered by some manufacturers of end products, to assure users they will perform as expected when installed. (You should talk to your supplier about details of any Performance Warranties they may offer).
Material Warranties are available against corrosion, to perforation by weathering in the natural elements; and for COLORBOND® steel, also against flake and peel. For more details, such as whether a warranty is available for your desired application, the applicable terms and conditions or how to apply for the warranties, please talk to your supplier or go to our relevant product section of this website.
