AXXIS STEEL FOR FRAMING
Axxis® steel is exceptionally strong and built for the toughest conditions. It is fire resistant, strong and has been shown to have excellent earthquake resistance. Its durability means that it won't rot or support mould growth and it won't suffer from borer or other insects.
PEACE OF MIND: A 50-YEAR DURABILITY STATEMENT
Axxis® steel has been developed and tested by New Zealand Steel, for New Zealand conditions. Galvanised with a 100% zinc coating for protection, it is backed by a 50-year Durability Statement, so you can trust that Axxis® steel will stand the test of time.
Steel Framing – A Healthier Choice
- It’s free of the harsh chemicals that are used to stop timber from rotting, and it can’t harbour mould or mildew spores. For your family, that means less exposure to chemicals and fewer problems with allergies and asthma. This is why our Axxis steel framing has been approved as a Sensitive Choice Partner by the Asthma Foundation.
- We are also proud of the fact that our steel frame systems are 100% recyclable making this solution a tick for your health, a tick for the community and a big tick for the environment.
- Kirkyl “K” Braces. Kirkyl “K” braces are stand-alone braced panels which can be retrofitted between the studs of older buildings needing additional bracing and also for inclusion in new builds.
As standard procedure our Kirkyl Chimney Frames were tested for their bracing ability. The results were so good, that we have included them in our range as a Bracing unit. They are tested, appraised and certified.
- Kirkyl “K” Braces are also used in new designs where wall space is limited. They can be used to compliment normal bracing where required.
"Kirkyl Frames are Strong, Light, Quick and Easy To erect."
