Truecore® Steel Frame a standard inclusion for all JG King Homes

There is no doubt the choice of your frame and roof for your new home is unlikely to be your first consideration. People forget the fundamental role these foundations make to a home. These two items are generally not discussed or even seriously considered. It is assumed all homes are built the same. They are not!

In this article, we outline the benefits a steel frame home delivers. Have you ever thought about the following?

  • A majority of your home comprises walls and ceilings (what you can see internally). Have you ever thought of what is behind it, holding together the structural integrity of your home? Your TRUECORE® Steel frame is built straighter, stronger, and does not warp or flex.

To give you that peace of mind your Truecore® steel frame is Australian-made and comes with an extensive warranty. *

*Subject to terms and conditions

  1. Durability
    The frame of your home is comprised of TRUECORE® steel G550 with Activate® technology. This is a hot-dipped aluminium/zinc/magnesium alloy-coated structural steel with a guaranteed minimum yield strength of 550MPa, manufactured using a blue-tinted resin.
  2. Tested in Australian Conditions

    Homes built in Australia face challenging weather conditions. Having to deal with the extremes of heat and cold, to dust, rain, wind and hail. Both materials (Truecore® frame and Colorbond® Roof) have been extensively tried and tested in Australian conditions.
    Truecore ® Steel frames have a huge influence on the structural integrity of the home itself. The house frame is more than just another stage in the building process. Also, it is not necessarily a standard inclusion (make sure you ask your builder what material your frame is made of):
    • Frames made with TRUECORE® steel won’t shrink, twist or warp over time so there's less chance of jamming doors, sticking windows or wavy rooflines.
    • TRUECORE® steel’s impressive strength-to-weight ratio allows for long spans and flexible design, helping JG King Homes create contemporary open-plan homes to suit today’s modern design trends.
    • You can rest assured that all TRUECORE® steel is made to all relevant Australian Standards and rigorously checked for quality and consistency.
    • TRUECORE ® steel is proudly manufactured in Australia by BlueScope, the manufacturer of COLORBOND® steel.
  3. Maintenance is a Breeze

    You obviously will not see your TRUECORE ® frame when you move in. It forms the foundation holding your house together. Your mind will be at ease knowing:
    • If quality is what you seek, you can experience peace of mind that your home is built with a steel frame. Frames made from TRUECORE® steel are consistently straight and true, resulting in stronger lines and a beautiful finish.
    • Your frame is not treated with insecticides (no need) to keep termites from eating your frame, so it is an ideal choice for those seeking to minimise the use of insecticides in and around their home.
    • TRUECORE ® Steel won’t ignite or contribute to the spread of house fire.
    • Durability through Steel that is 100% termite and borer proof.
