TRUECORE® steel from BlueScope Distribution

Enjoy the freedom and convenience of sourcing all your TRUECORE® steel coil products under one roof. Framing fabricated from TRUECORE® steel delivers benefits for builders, designers and homeowners alike. Our BlueScope Distribution team can supply your roll forming business with the slit coil sizes you need to manufacture steel framing made with TRUECORE® steel. Steel framing made with TRUECORE® steel is easily recognisable with its blue finish. Its coating also comes with BlueScope’s patented Activate® technology for enhanced corrosion resistance.

A building frame made from TRUECORE® steel is strong, straight and precise. Steel house framing made with TRUECORE® steel won’t experience shrinkage or twisting over time, which reduces the chance for jammed doors or uneven rooflines. TRUECORE® steel is also termite and borer proof – so it’s no wonder that the inner strength of TRUECORE® steel is the future of framing. Building frames made from TRUECORE® steel are efficient to work with and quick to install.
