Steel frame construction is popular because of a number of advantages which are highlighted in a post by a framing systems manufacturer on a popular architectural website. One of the main benefits that we may not have known is overall safety.
Some of theother benefits include:
- Earthing of the steel frames reduces the chances of electrocution in the event of the frame being exposed to an electrical current.
- Steel houses are less susceptible to lightning than timber frames.
- They are fire resistant, which is particularly beneficial in bushfire prone areas.
