Build your home with the strength of TRUECORE® Steel Frames


FAQs About Steel Joists

Trusses and frames made of steel are structural systems made from steel parts, which are used for construction, to help support the weight of a structure.

Steel is strong, durable and light which makes it ideal for structures of large size. Steel is also immune to pests, fire and decay.

Yes frames and trusses made of steel can be designed and constructed to meet the particular requirements of every construction project.

Trusses and steel frames can be utilised in commercial, residential industrial, agricultural, and residential structures.

Yes, they’re cost-effective in the long term due to their durability and low maintenance requirements.

The length of time for installation varies depending on the size and complexity of the project; however, it’s generally faster than traditional construction methods.

Steel can be recycled, which makes it a green option. It also takes less energy to make in comparison to other materials.

Yes steel’s toughness and flexibility makes it a good choice for constructions that are earthquake-resistant.

Inspections of corrosion regularly and repainting if required are the main maintenance requirements.

Steel is impervious to weather-related damages, such as mould and rot, which makes it an ideal option for areas that have extreme climates.

Yes protective coatings, like galvanising or paint can be applied to steel to stop corrosion and rust.

 Yes the steel frames and trusses can be often used in residential construction because of their durability as well as design flexibility.

Yes it is possible to combine steel with other materials like wood, concrete and glass to create flexible and attractive structures.

– Yes steel has a very high melting point and doesn’t cause a fire’s spread and is therefore fire-proof.

Yes, the strength of steel makes it an ideal option for tall structures.

Yes, they can be used during renovations to help strengthen existing structures or to create new living spaces.

Yes, they are usually prefabricated off-site and then transported to construction sites. This will cut down on time and the labour required on site.

– Yes, these frames and trusses can last a long time or even centuries if they are maintained properly. maintenance.

While steel frames and trusses may have an initial cost that is higher but it usually provides more value over the long run because of its durability and less maintenance.

Yes, it is possible. Steel is among the most recycled products on the planet which reduces the environmental impact.

Steel structures generally require foundations similar to slabs or concrete piers, depending on the project’s design and the load-bearing specifications.

Yes, it is in danger of being attacked by pests, making it a great option for areas that have termite issues.

Steel’s strength permits it to withstand significant loads which makes it suitable for a variety of applications.

While steel is susceptible to rusting with time, the proper coats and regular maintenance will help prevent corrosion and rust.

The warranty for steel frames and trusses can differ however, the majority of manufacturers offer warranties that range between 10 and 50 years and even more.

Yes they can be designed to conform to local construction codes and safety standards.

Steel frames and trusses can be paired with insulation to produce a building envelope that is energy efficient.

Yes steel can be integrated into green building plans to meet sustainable goals.

– Insulated steel structures can result in an improvement in energy efficiency and better energy ratings.

 – Yes, it is. Steel is frequently used in storage facilities, barns and various other structures for agriculture.
