Hitek Steel Framing is dedicated to bringing the future building solution to home owners and builders across Australia. The future building solution is a steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing.
The use of steel framing has been utilised in Australia and internationally for over 50 years due to its significant advantages over conventional framing material.
It is no secret that termites are a nightmare for home owners and it has been reported that “Termites are costing Australian home owners almost $1 billion a year, with the average cost to repair and treat such an attack around $7,000″ (www.archicentre.com.au).
Steel wall and roof framing made by Hitek Steel Framing is 100 per cent termite and borer proof. As a result, frames will not require expensive chemical treatments to protect them from termite attacks.
It may not be known to all, but damage caused to your home by termite attacks may not be covered by insurance – the result being repair bills costing you thousands.
Owning a steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing will eliminate the risk of termite attacks on your walls and roof and give you 100 per cent peace of mind.
Unlike timber, the inherent strength and durability of steel means steel frames have true structural integrity every time.
A steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing is precision engineered using the latest technology which means it is always dimensionally accurate. The precision and accuracy of a frame made by Hitek Steel Framing eliminates the risk of shrinking, rotting, and warping. No shrinking, rotting, or warping means no jammed doors and windows, no curved or crimped walls, and no drooped or sagging roof lines – all common problems with conventional timber frames.
Steel’s inherent durability provides strength and superior resistance in extreme environments and conditions. A frame made by Hitek Steel Framing will stand up to the toughest conditions in cyclone prone areas and will not combust which means it will not contribute to the spread of fire.
A steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the most valued asset in your life is protected by the strength and durability of steel.
Every steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing uses sophisticated design software and the latest rollforming technology which means every framing member is precision engineered to be straight, strong, and stable.
Because a Hitek Steel Frame is always 100% square and straight, trades people spend less time straightening and squaring frames (a common problem with conventional timber frames) eliminating the time and money spent repairing warped, bowed, or cracked non-linear members.
All frames made by Hitek Steel Framing come with pre-punched electrical and service holes making it simpler, neater, and more efficient for following trades to finalise their work – The result is a reduction in labour costs and ultimately savings to the homeowner and builder.
Every steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing is pre-fabricated in our workshop which means frames go up fast with no site mess or waste.
Frames made by Hitek Steel Framing are tremendously strong and lightweight which means they require less material than conventional frames, ultimately leading to cost savings for the homeowner and builder.
Because steel is strong and light weight, the components of a frame made by Hitek Steel Framing are easy to transport and handle, reducing transport and handling time which ultimately speeds up construction time- saving the home owner and builder time and money.
A frame made by Hitek Steel Framing can be completed in only a fraction of the time it takes to complete a frame using conventional material. The result is lower installation costs for all people on site.
The higher strength to weight ratio of a steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing compared to a conventional timber frame means it is lighter and stronger.
This strength to weight ratio allows for superior spanning capabilities which ultimately gives designers, builders, and homeowners the freedom to take advantage of greater design flexibility and the luxury gained by large open space modern designs.
The design versatility of a frame made by Hitek Steel Framing means it coincides perfectly with contemporary innovative designs – helping designers, builders, and homeowners create unique, market leading, highly personalised homes.
All steel frames produced by Hitek Steel Framing are made from sustainable engineered material which makes them an excellent environmental product.
Because steel is one of the most recycled materials on the planet, when it is recycled it can be recreated to exact structural tolerances, unlike timber which loses structural integrity becoming a lesser quality product. These properties allow for a reduction in environmental impact from waste going to landfill.
For an average sized house, a steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing can be produced by recycling approximately 5 to 6 cars. A conventional timber frame of the same size will consume approx 50-60 trees.
Hitek Steel Framing frames have less environmental impact and more environmental benefits than conventional timber frames, which enables Hitek Steel Framing to bring the future building solution to owners and builders.
It is recognised in Australia and internationally that steel framing is the healthy home alternative for people suffering from asthma and other respiratory disorders.
A Hitek Steel Framing frame does not require treatment with pesticides or harmful preservative chemicals and will not support mould, growth or rot like conventional timber frames. It is also non-allergenic and will not give off gases or emit VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds).
Owning a steel frame made by Hitek Steel Framing is the health conscious alternative that will keep you and your family healthy and happy day in day out.
