The Smartsteel software is a sophisticated software system with full scale testing of connectors and wall framing systems conducted in the National Association of Testing Authorities accredited laboratory. This means that our design and detailing is based on testing – not theory. The result is a more efficient steel framing system that uses less steel and is engineered to meet Australian building codes for cyclonic and non-cyclonic areas. Once we complete the design process the end result is a wall and roof truss system that is manufactured using a combination of 90mm ribbed C-sections and 90mm U-sections for plates and nogging. The use of U-section for the nogging adds rigidity to the frame while the ribbed C-section provides up to 20% additional strength to wall studs and roof trusses.
