Steel framing made from TRUECORE® steel delivers a range of environmental benefits, both immediate and long term
The relative light weight of steel framing, combined with its design versatility and flexibility, means a steel-framed house can be built with minimal site impact.
Quite literally, it 'touches the earth lightly'.
This is especially apparent on sloping and difficult sites where it can be used in conjunction with suspended flooring systems, reducing the need to cut into the site and thus leaving a much smaller imprint.
And because steel frames are fabricated off-site to exact specifications, there is minimal cutting and wastage onsite - making for a cleaner building environment. Steel is one of the most recycled materials on the planet.
Not only is TRUECORE® steel 100 per cent recyclable, it is made with a component of recycled steel.
Because steel requires no additional chemical treatments, steel framing is recognised both here and overseas as a healthy home alternative for people suffering from asthma.
