What we offer

Made by Kiwis for Kiwi conditions

Light-gauge structural solutions for large-scale projects

New Zealand has ever-changing weather conditions, which is why agricultural, industrial and commercial builders are choosing to build with light gauge steel (LGS). Lightweight, strong, straight, and fire resistant, it is ideal for New Zealand conditions.

At Central Steel Framing, our expertise and technology help Kiwi businesses get the most out of LGS framing for their builds.

Steel vs Timber: A better way to build

Timber shortages, rising labour costs, sustainability considerations…it all makes switching to light gauge steel framing a smart move. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Better weight-to-strength ratio
  • More fire resistant
  • Faster construction times 
  • Easy to move onsite
  • Precise and requires less reworking 
  • Less waste and 100% recyclable
  • 100% NZ made and manufactured.

LGS roll-formed framing outperforms traditional construction in almost every meaningful metric. With the benefits of light gauge steel, it is the right call.

Why Light Gauge Steel

Light gauge steel framing is a straight and stable product that delivers an excellent finish. Compared to traditional building methods, light gauge steel provides numerous benefits, including dimensional accuracy, speed of construction and faster completion times, fewer builder call-backs, lower total cost, minimal wastage, a strong and lightweight structure, fire-resistance, durability, and peace of mind.
