When you build with Supaloc steel frames, you can be sure that you are building with the best possible quality.
In what has been referred to as a “growing crisis”, the Australian steel industry is being undercut, and shut out by overseas markets. Australia’s steel manufacturing has been reported to be running at only 50 percent of its capacity, due to lack of support from Australian buyers. When Australian companies choose to import their steel from around the world, it jeopardises Australian industries and Australian jobs. The Australian steel industry is a critical force in the wider Australian economy, and therefore it is imperative that it remains strong in order to maintain Australia’s healthy economic situation. At Supaloc, we are proud to use Australian steel, in an effort to support local industry, local jobs, and the local economy.
Furthermore, steel purchased from overseas manufacturers may falsely claim to be compliant with Australian standards. Such steel is often not tested as comprehensively as its Australian counterparts, and their warranties may also not apply in Australia. In contrast, Australian steel is tested rigorously in Australian conditions, and manufactured to withstand the harshest elements. It is compliant with strict Australian Standards, as outlined by the Building Code of Australia. Therefore, when you build with Supaloc steel frames, you can be sure that you are building with the best possible quality, as guaranteed by a 50 year written warranty.
