Naturally Resistant

Naturally resistant, your steel decking won’t succumb to termites and if termites are using your framing to access your wooden floorboards, their trails are easy to spot and treat, with the steel easily wipeable and resistant to light domestic chemical exposure. Steel deck framing is fire resistant and non-combustible and can come with options to protect the deck from fire even further by adding fire-resistant and energy-efficient insulation to meet the standards of national Bushfire Attack Level regulations.


Cost Effective

Steel deck framing takes less maintenance and upkeep than wood decking. With no cost for pest control, plus the ability to span a longer distance than wood (meaning less product is needed), steel framed decks will save you money from installation through to the day to day use of your deck. With the option to fabricate the steel framed decks to suit your space, fewer support beams are needed, meaning you can avoid spending half of your decking budget on keeping the deck standing. Additionally, steel framed decks takes less time to install, meaning a shorter turn around time and less money spent on labour.

Uniform and Precise

When it comes to steel framed decks, think of the decks of old, with uneven floorboards, quirky finishes, and imperfections. This is due to the nature of the wood – subject to warping, twisting, and shrinking, especially when delivered and installed while wet. The instability of wood during installation causes a lack of uniformity and precision in the final product and the absorption of moisture can mean the wood twists and goes further out of shape as the years go by. Steel framed decks are not subject to moisture, weather or even age, and you can rest assured that your deck will be cut and installed with sharp and even edges, without changing or altering in appearance over time.
