The Benefits of 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.
Steel homes are 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.
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.
Easy, and 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.
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.
