Structural building supplies have traditionally been timber, especially for residential construction. Yet structural steel offers a cost-efficient and, in many ways, superior alternative to timber beams, posts, base plates, and cleats.

Steel-framed homes and home improvements may seem like a newer concept in Australia, however, structural steel has been used residentially since before 1960. It has been even more widely used commercially and for a longer time.

Why choose structural steel?

Structural steel is:

  • Durable
  • Strong
  • Versatile
  • Will not buckle, warp, flex, twist, or shrink
  • Fire-resistant
  • Cyclone-proof
  • Environmentally friendly as it is 100% recyclable
  • Requires no chemical treatment against pests or mould
  • Impervious to termites and other pests
  • Cost-effective
  • Maintenance-free
  • Exceptional strength-to-weight ratio
