Why We Use Truecore Steel Coating

If you’re beginning a new steel-frame project, you understand how important it is to choose high-quality steel for your project. Whether you’re concerned about the weight of your building or severe weather, there’s no better steel out there than Truecore steel. We’ve been in business for over 20 years and have provided steel framing systems for numerous projects – there’s no other steel we would trust more than Truecore. Here are some of the top reasons we use Truecore steel.

Costs and Construction

Time If you’re concerned about costs of upkeep and maintenance for your home or commercial building, choosing Truecore is the best way to control those costs. There is very little upkeep required with Truecore – the steel is rolled and coated in a way that makes it incredibly resistant to things like heat, infestations, and weather.

You’ll also save money on your construction costs. Since the steel is coated in a high-quality zinc and aluminium alloy, there is little to no preparation work required prior to starting the build. As soon as the steel is delivered, construction can begin. That saves you a lot of time and money in unnecessary construction costs.

The quality and strength of the steel means less steel is needed overall for your project. That means you won’t have to buy as much steel and can cut back on your construction costs. You’re going to get incredible support and safety with Truecore steel, all while saving money.


Truecore steel comes with an incredible 50-year warranty. This high-quality steel meets Australian safety and design standards, meaning it’s the best steel on the market. On the off chance that something does go wrong with your Truecore steel, you’re covered under the impressive 50-year warranty.


The number one reason to choose Truecore steel is because of its safety. The blue coating on the steel is for more than just looks. The zinc and aluminium alloy coating that we mentioned earlier is what gives the steel its famous blue colour. That coating protects the steel against corrosion. Steel that doesn’t have protective coatings are very susceptible to corrosion over time, which can severely impact the integrity of the steel.

The steel is hot-dipped into the coating, which helps bind it to the steel on all sides. The way that the steel is hot-dipped in the coating allows the thickness to be controlled, meaning you’re getting consistent thickness throughout your steel.

Truecore steel is naturally resistant to pests, specifically termites. Termites can cause a lot of damage to homes and buildings that are made of wood frames – with steel frames, you don’t have to worry about termites eating away at your frame. The protective coating on the steel means you don’t have to waste time and money on additional protective coatings.

If you’re worried about fires breaking out in your home or office, Truecore steel is just what you need. Steel is resistant to fire, and the Truecore steel coating adds another layer of fire-resistance to your framing system. By choosing steel, you’re dramatically reducing the amount of flammable material in your building. Homes and commercial buildings with wood frames are at a much higher risk for fires.
