Why  steel?

Steel is a Superior Construction Material 

  • Highest strength-to-weight-ratio
  • 100% recycable
  • Non-combustible-does not burn and will not fuel a fire
  • Inorganic-will not rot, warp, split, crack or creep
  • Dimensionally stable-does not expand or contract with moisture content
  • Consistent material quality-produced according to steel manufacturers standards

Benefits to the Consumer

  • High strength results in safer structures, less maintenance and slow ageing of structure
  • Fire Safety
  • Not vulnerable to termites
  • No toxic chemicals are used to treat steel, unlike timber
  • Not vulnerable to fungi or organism
  • Less chance of foundation problems since its 5 x lighter than wood, resulting in less movement
  • Less probability of damage in earthquake or high winds due to lighter structure, stronger connections, riveted and screwed versus nail.

Benefits to the Builder

  • Lighter than other framing materials-no lifting equipment needed on site.  One person can carry a 5 metre fabricated panel
  • Easy material selection-no need to cull or sort
  • Straight walls and square corners
  • Call backs due to cracks are eliminated
  • Windows and doors open as they should
  • Less scrap and waste (2% for steel versus 20% for wood)
  • No drying out period in wet weather, no delays
