FAQs

What would be the best surface treatment for my project?

This is dependent on where your steel is located.

If your steel is exposed to the outdoor elements or you’re in an area close to the ocean, then we would recommend a Hot Dip Galvanised finish. If your steel is to be covered by a form of cladding (bricks, plasterboard, etc.) or is entirely indoors then we would recommend a standard Zinc Oxide paint finish.

We also offer powder-coating or epoxy coating services if you require a coloured finish on your steel.  These finishes come in many different colours to match your architectural requirements.

Do you Galvanise, Powdercoat and/or Paint steel?

Yes, we Zinc Prime steel in house if and when required.  Additionally, we offer galvanising and powdercoating treatments by engaging trusted specialist companies who provide these surface treatments for us on a regular basis. Surface treatments are an important consideration to your steel, and form one aspect of most projects we deliver.  Please feel free to contact us should you require any information about surface treatments.

Do you work with Aluminum, sheet metal or Stainless steel?

No, we only work with mild steel, however, we have a network of other trusted suppliers that we can recommend or help organise for you.

Do you site weld?

Yes, we offer MIG welding and OXY cutting for installation service and repairs. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Do you install structural steel?

Yes, installing our structural steel is a regular component of most projects. We have more than 30 years experience in installing structural steel and we only utilise highly experienced and fully licensed riggers.

Do you deliver?

Yes, we deliver and we will aim to work in with your schedule. This is extremely important if you are coordinating with other trades as well. Should you wish to collect your items yourself we will advise when your goods will be available for collection.

What are your trading terms?

Our payment terms are strictly 14-days from date of invoice. Projects require a 10% deposit on acceptance of a quote. Regular progress payment claims will be issued until completion of works is achieved and a final payment claim is issued.

I can get my steel cheaper elsewhere, do you price match?

Not usually, we focus our efforts on delivering high quality workmanship and product, and professional experience. Cheaper quotes are often based on: using inferior quality steel that may not have met Australian Standards; not calculating full requirements; or are under-estimated in time and cost, which will ultimately lead to problems and delays to your valuable project.

Is your steel Australian made or imported?

We pride ourselves on only using Australian steel, which meets Australia’s stringent standards. We obtain test certificates for all steel used, to ensure compliance with Australian standards.
