The Advantages of Light Gauge Steel Framing for Construction in Perth

Light gauge steel framing has become an increasingly popular choice for builders and construction companies in Perth looking for a versatile, durable, and sustainable framing solution. Compared to traditional timber framing, light gauge steel offers numerous benefits that make it well-suited for residential, commercial, and industrial projects across Western Australia.

At Nextruss Steel, our locally-based production facilities utilize advanced rollforming equipment to manufacture premium light gauge steel framing components. As leading suppliers of steel framing in Perth, we provide high quality cold-formed studs, tracks, and trusses optimized for strength, precision, and cost-competitiveness.

Discover the key benefits of using Nextruss Steel’s light gauge steel framing for your upcoming construction projects in WA:

Strength & Durability

Our lightweight steel framing meets Australian Standard AS3623 requirements for strength and durability. The galvanized steel resists termite damage, rotting, warping, and shrinking. Structures framed with our products can withstand harsh weather conditions, standing up to high winds and seismic activity.

The cold-formed steel we utilize has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it light yet extremely sturdy. Our precision manufacturing processes create incredibly stable framing. The galvanized coating provides superior corrosion resistance compared to untreated steel.

Design Flexibility

With custom rollforming capabilities, we can manufacture framing to match complex or unique architectural plans. Light gauge steel enables curved walls, vaulted ceilings, and interesting angles for modern designs.

No matter the shape, size, or complexity – our steel framing solutions offer architects, builders, and engineers the design freedom to bring plans to life. We work closely with clients from the outset to develop optimized framing designs tailored to their specific project needs.

Rapid Construction

With prefabricated framing components produced precisely to required measurements, buildings framed with our light gauge steel can be constructed faster than conventional materials. This saves time and labour costs.

The ability to pre-cut all framing pieces to exact specifications based on plans results in faster assembly on-site. Because the steel framing is lightweight, it’s also easier to transport. Our production and logistics process is geared towards minimizing install time.

Bushfire Resistance

Steel is non-combustible, making it suitable for bushfire-prone areas across WA. Using our framing provides added peace of mind.

For regions where bushfire safety is a concern, light gauge steel framing offers protection. The non-combustible nature of steel prevents the spread of flames. This added security is invaluable for homeowners and businesses.


Steel is 100% recyclable. Our production process minimises waste, and steel requires less energy to produce than other building materials.

The recyclability and longevity of steel framing has clear sustainability benefits. Steel components can be continually reprocessed and reused. We utilize scrap steel feeds and green manufacturing practices to reduce environmental impact.


The total installed cost using our steel framing solutions is very cost-competitive in Perth. We offer discounted pricing for large wholesale orders.

With lower transportation costs and rapid on-site assembly, our light gauge steel framing can realize significant cost savings for builders. The minimal maintenance and longevity also provide excellent value over time. We offer helpful pricing resources.

Locally Produced

With our production facilities strategically located near Perth, we can deliver framing components faster and more affordably. Our local capabilities enable quick turnarounds.

By having end-to-end production based in WA, we control quality while providing better lead times and pricing. Our expertise in light gauge steel manufacturing ensures optimal solutions.
