Metal Frame Structure

Advantages of Metal Frame Structures

No Span Restrictions

Span restrictions are common with timber trusses, which can only span to a limited length. Steel trusses, on the other hand, have no limit when it comes to span. This makes them ideal for use in buildings where large areas have to be covered without the obstruction of structures, such as columns. Fire Resistance Steel has a higher fire resistance capacity than timber. If you are constructing your building in an area that is prone to bushfires, steel trusses are the ideal option to go for.

Pest Resistance

A common problem with timber materials is the infestation of pests, especially termites. Termites and other wood-boring pests are highly destructive and can affect the integrity of the structure. While you can always treat your wood with pest-resistant products, this would mean higher costs of maintenance. Steel roof trusses aren't susceptible to such problems.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Our Light-gauge steel framing systems consist of structural frames fabricated using cold formed steel sections. They can be used throughout a structure, including load-bearing exterior walls, non-load bearing interior walls, floor joists, curtain walls and roof trusses. Their benefits include: Fast and clean construction.
