We Use Premium Steel Framing

  • Galvanised high tensile steel framing is lighter, stronger, safer and healthier as it does not rot or produce mould and is not treated with chemicals.
  • Steel does not warp, shrink or rust.
  • Steel framing is recyclable, fire resistant and has excellent earthquake resistance.
  • NBB has it's own rollformer which is transportable to site making it cost effective and time saving.
  • A great choice to ensure a strong, straight home that is built to last.
