In recent years Australia has become exposed to the full ramifications of a global market in construction product supply. Across a wide spectrum of industries, unrestricted imports are killing Australian steel manufacturing. The issue goes beyond dumping to include imports that fail Australian quality and safety standards and come with fraudulent claims, labels and assurances.
The supply of an increasing percentage of non-compliant, unsuitable and often faulty steel and steel products is a very real concern for safety, asset value and whole of life performance in major development projects and prefabricated steel components in Australia.
Is your structural steel, roofing and walling compliant to Australian Standards? Insist on using genuine Australian made BlueScope steel to ensure compliance, warranties and peace of mind when selecting your shed supplier.
The difference lies in performance requirements. COLORBOND® steel complies with a number of Australian Standards and was designed in Australia for Australian conditions. It is manufactured by BlueScope Steel, with a reputation second to none. COLORBOND® steel is not just powder coated steel. It is one of the most advanced steel products in the world, combining the outstanding anti corrosion performance of a ZINCALUME® steel base with a superior paint system. With imported steels you may not have all of these guarantees of quality and who would back up your warranty if you’re steel failed?
Where it’s appropriate to place branding, products manufactured from COLORBOND® steel, ZINCALUME® steel can be identified by the laser engraved COLORBOND® steel branding to ensure you know you are getting the real deal.
Look for the brand that identifies the long lasting guaranteed performance of genuine BlueScope Steel.
