The Benefits of Steel
If you want to protect your long-term investment, steel is the product to use for house and commercial framing. It’s lightweight, strong, won’t burn, is termite and borer proof and won’t shrink, warp or twist. That means your structure is easier to maintain now and well into the future.
Built to last
Our steel framing systems 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.
The steel in our solutions has a protective zinc/aluminium coating. This gives it excellent durability, even when it’s used in roofing applications where it’s exposed to the elements. Having an extra layer of protection is also important for less exposed internal building frames. For example, at drill holes and cut edges, the coating protects the exposed steel edge against corrosion, along with nylon grommets for protection in electrical and plumbing service holes.
Easy and efficient installation
Our steel frame pre-fabrication and modern fixing techniques make construction simple. The lightweight nature of steel 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.
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 homes and commercial projects. Steel framing is a popular choice nationwide, with interest rapidly growing since the ban on organochlorine soil treatments from July 1995.
