Owner Builder? Insist on the strong framing option!

Fortitude Frames only uses quality, Australian made TRUECORE® steel.

Naturally Termite Free

The Building Code of Australia specifies chemical and physical termite barriers only where structural members are subject to termite attack. A steel frame is resistant to termite attack and a house built with a steel frame without a termite barrier is a reasonably safe option for an owner. The safest possible options are a steel frame plus non-structural fixtures of termite-resistant materials, or a steel frame plus a termite barrier. Visit the National Association for Steel Framed Housing’s (NASH) Termite Information Site.

Non Combustible

Steel is non-combustible and does not add fuel to a fire. The elimination of combustible material, such as timber in frames and roofing, can have a tremendous influence on preventing the ignition of a fire. It can also slow the speed of a fire, reduce the intensity and potentially reduce the damage and cost caused by fire.

Sustainable Material

Steel framing is ideal for energy efficient building designs. Steel framing is recyclable. Every piece of steel framing is used – there are no offcuts wasted. Hole punch outs and other odd bits of steel are 100% recycled.

Trouble Free

Steel frames are shrinkage free.

  • No sticking door and window jambs.
  • No cracking cornices.
  • Walls, ceilings and roofs stay straight and true.
  • Steel frames are engineered to expand and contract at rates reasonably similar to those of other building materials, such as cornices and plasterboard.

Steel frames are ideal for concrete slabs and sub floor construction. Steel frames have excellent spanning ability, a natural for today’s wide open living spaces. Steel frames are electrically safe, designed so that any electrical leakage is conducted safely straight to the ground.
