Steel framing from Steel Frame Solutions offers you greater design freedom than other materials. Open-plan living is integral with contemporary designs and steel framing is the best way to achieve maximum open spaces.

For the environmentally-conscious home owner, steel framing is 100% recyclable and currently 60% of all steel used in Australia is made from recycled scrap. When steel is recycled it can be recreated to exact performance and structural criteria, unlike timber products that always become a lesser grade, lesser quality product. To put steel framing into perspective an average steel house frame can be fabricated by recycling around 6 cars. Alternatively the use of a timber frame will consume around 40 to 50 trees.

Finally all Steel Frame Solutions frames are covered by a 50 year warranty provided by Bluescope Steel which gives you even greater peace of mind.
