When building a home, it’s important that your framing is strong, straight and built to last. Made by New Zealand Steel, Axxis® steel is galvanised, high-tensile steel specifically designed for New Zealand’s house-framing market.
A better quality home
Steel-framing is a straight and stable product that delivers an excellent finish. The rollforming technology behind steel-framing gives a high degree of dimensional accuracy, enabling consistently straight walls, square corners and an overall superior finish. The exactness that comes from building in this way helps later trades fitting internal linings, kitchens and other cupboards. Plus the stability of steel means no contraction or expansion with moisture changes, so frames won’t warp, twist, sag or shrink, eliminating many of the maintenance issues that create builder call-backs.
The strength of steel
Axxis® steel is exceptionally strong and built for the toughest conditions. It is fire resistant and strong and has been shown to have excellent earthquake resistance. Its durability means that it won’t rot or support mould growth and it won’t suffer from borer or other insects. It’s also galvanised to prevent corrosion when good weathertightness principles are applied to the cladding design and installation.
