Richard and Liane
After investigating options for building our dream home, we were pleased to discover steel framing as a healthier and more cost effective alternative to timber.
We would like to acknowledge Eddie from EziSteel for all the helpful advice and communication during construction. Had it not been for his genuine interest in getting things right we could have ended up with a couple of mistakes, you know the sort of thing that would always annoy you and you wish you had thought of it before you started.
Nothing was too much trouble and Eddie went way beyond the call of duty, for that we sincerely thank him. We would have no hesitation in recommending EziSteel and our best wishes for the future of your business.
EziSteel has been supplying us with steel framing since 2009. This has included large commercial & residential projects as well as some of our smaller projects where internal fit out only is required.
The product we receive from EziSteel is always top quality and competitively priced.
Eddie has helped us a great deal with design and engineering consultation that has been invaluable and ensured that some of our larger projects have gone off without a hitch.
EziSteel have always gone out of their way to ensure our requirements are met 100 %
We look forward to continuing our work with EziSteel in the future.
Happy and repeat client
EziSteel has supplied partition frames for several of our steel portal frame buildings. His familiarity with our system and understanding of what we want to achieve in our buildings makes the process of designing, installing and finishing a breeze.
Steel frames are complimentary to our buildings, and we have found them to be both a cost and time effective alternative without any of the drawbacks of traditional wooden framing.
Our customers comment on the neat appearance and are impressed with the ease of running services through them and the lack of hold ups like straightening frames and no waiting for the moisture content to drop.
We like the service – they come off Eddie’s trailer and get fixed straight into place. We have been more than impressed with the quality, speed of manufacture and service . I highly recommend EziSteel, you won’t be disappointed with the product or service.
How well does steel framing stand up to earthquake...
Steel framing can be engineered to meet the highest seismic and wind loads prescribed by the NZ Building Code. Steel has the highest strength to weight ratio of any framing materials and a lighter structure with stronger connections results in lower damage from earthquakes. Steel framed houses in Christchurch suffered only superficial but no structural damage. The stronger screwed connections can withstand greater winds including cyclones.
Do homes with steel framing look different?
Yes, they look better. Walls, ceilings and roofs do not have ripples or bumps in them and there are no “nail pops” in the plasterboard linings. Roofs of steel-framed homes do not sag over time, so the finished job keeps looking good. In fact because of the steel’s strength you can design your home with larger open spaces whilst the exterior looks like any normal home.
What about electrical and plumbing service holes?
Our frames are manufactured with pre-punched 34mm holes for running pipes and electrical wiring, reducing preparation time for other trades. Additional service holes are easily drilled or can be punched and we supply plastic grommets to protect wiring and plumbing.
