Consumer Benefits

Steel provides a number of benefits to the consumer including
  • High strength results in safer structures, less maintenance and slower aging of structure
  • Fire safety
  • Not vulnerable to termites
  • No additional preservative chemicals are required over and above the galvanising process to treat steel, unlike the treatment of timber
  • Not vulnerable to any type of fungi or organism
  • Less probability of foundation problems - 5 times lighter than wood which results in less movement
  • Less probability of damage in an earthquake - lighter structure with stronger connections results in less seismic force
  • Less probability of damage in high winds - stronger connections, rivetted and screwed versus nailed
