Avro Steel Frames & Trusses are fast and easy to erect following basic construction principles and, being pre-fabricated with modern fastening techniques, make construction simple.
Computer control of the machinery used in manufacture ensure that the frames and trusses are millimetre perfect. A wall frame that is supposed to be 4985 mm long is precisely that - not 4984 or 4986 mm.
Swaging of connection areas and dimpling of screw holes ensures that your plasterer has a flat surface to work with.
The follow-on trades have the benefit of pre-punched holes for plumbing and electrical services thereby greatly reducing drilling.
Steel frames stay straight. They will not twist, warp, sag or shrink.
You can have more homes underway at the same time. The weather will not alter the frame quality.
You will not have the costs of straightening a weather affected frame to prepare for plaster.
Steel frames are 100% termite proof.
Steel frames are much lighter than timber, yet provide greater strength, so you can run smaller teams on site.
Every steel frame is engineered to perform for life.
