In our line of work, trust is a crucial aspect of everything we do.

Developers need to be able to trust that they can rely on us to deliver the highest quality construction on every build. In turn, we need to be able to have trust in the materials we use to support us in upholding that quality consistently.

With this trust in mind, we carefully assess all materials we use for their quality and durability. And when it comes to light gauge steel, TRUECORE® steel is our choice.

The ‘why’ can be summarised down to this: Pre-fabricated off site means less drama on site. We know that frames made from TRUECORE® steel will ensure that our buildings are strong, durable, and built to last.

What we look for when it comes to framing

Framing is the bones of each development, forming a vital part of a dwelling’s structural integrity. Needless to say, as the basis of the structure the frame needs to be straight, it needs to be strong and it needs to last.

House frames made with the inner strength of TRUECORE® steel are precision engineered and can be pre-fabricated off site to strict tolerances. The result? Highly accurate frames that are not only strong and light, but won’t shrink, twist or warp over time, so there’s less chance of sticking windows, jammed doors or wavy rooflines.

Dependability over the lifespan of a building is a must. Frames constructed with TRUECORE® steel aren’t just straight — they’re also 100% termite and borer proof. The material is non-combustible too, reducing the amount of flammable material in a finished structure.

The nature of the TRUECORE® steel offering means that we can use it for all our framing needs, regardless of the size or complexity of the project. Because it is manufactured to strict quality standards, we can trust that every piece of steel we use is of the same high quality.

Backed by excellence

It’s worth noting that TRUECORE® steel is a BlueScope product. As such, it is backed by a long-standing reputation for excellence. BlueScope is a trusted name in the steel industry. With a 50-year warranty on TRUECORE® steel, developers — alongside the SAW Constructions team — can have peace of mind knowing that their buildings will stand strong for years to come.

At SAW Constructions, we take pride in our own reputation for excellence and by using TRUECORE® steel, we can ensure that our buildings are structurally sound and will stand the test of time. Developers can trust that their buildings are in good hands with SAW.
