The Mill at Eugowra is producing frames and trusses again. No, it’s not the old timber machines firing up again, this time round it is steel made by Light Steel Structures.
Modern, efficient and 100% recyclable the light gauge steel outweighs the timber option on the weight to strength ratio. Each project is custom produced to maximise speed and minimise cost.
Light Steel Structures is filling a void in the market throughout the Central West with its focus on looking after local builders, many of whom were left high and dry when the timber shortage hit home.
Light Steel Structures Manager, Daniel Relyea says “it’s great to be able to service the most important market sector, the lower volume builders. Together with the latest in machining technology and powerful design software, we can design and produce custom frames and trusses with a short turnaround time.
“I have spent many years in the building and construction industry and always used timber, but now having seen just how advanced steel framing can be, I’m a convert to steel. The dimple and rivet allow for a flush wall frame meaning fixing linings life gyprock sit flat.
“With steel frames being much lighter than timber, the system suits owner builders and those with small crews to work efficiently. It will be great to see money staying in the region with a new local business providing building products as well as jobs”, said Daniel.
