Advantages of our Aussie Steel for builders
Steel Frames are the future of framing, everyday more homeowners are requesting steel framed homes. Steel is easy to install and easy to handle, potentially brining many on-site efficiencies all while delivering a quality product to the customer.
With steel, you can get precision and accuracy consistently, preventing lost time sorting suitable pieces of timber, less wastage and a durable straight frame that lasts!
Time is money. Steel frames can save time on site from initial install right through to fittings and fixtures.
Strong and durable
A house frame made from our Aussie Steel House Frames is strong and durable. They don’t warp, twist, sag or shrink.
Our frames are prefabricated offsite, improving on-site efficiency. Our steel frame solutions are efficient to work with and fast to install. They also lead to less wastage on site and can average just 2% vs 20% for timber.
Make life easy
Staight and true
Our engineering software and machines allows us to manufacture our frames with the highest levels of precision. Prefabricated and dimensionally accurate, our frames remain straight and true – windows and doors open and close as they should.

Do I have design flexibility with Steel frames?
Our steel frames can produce almost any one or two storey home design seen in Australia today. Steel has a high strength to weight ratio and stay straight and true. Steel is an ideal choice for modern home design.
Are steel house frames durable?
Yes, they are. TRUECORE® steel with Activate® technology incorporates a thoroughly tested protective aluminium/zinc/magnesium alloy coating. TRUECORE’s patented Activate® coating technology is an important component of BlueScope products installed across a range of environments and building applications. Where there are cut edges from drilling or cutting operations, the galvanic action of the coating protects the exposed steel edge against corrosion.
