墨尔本（Melbourne）是澳大利亚维多利亚州的首府、澳大利亚联邦第二大城市，澳洲文化、工业中心，是南半球最负胜名的文化名城，以纪念英国首相威廉·兰姆——第二代墨尔本子爵而命名，1847年由英国维多利亚女王宣告墨尔本市（City of Melbourne）成立。墨尔本曾是澳大利亚联邦维多利亚州的首府，城市绿地率高达40%。大墨尔本地区面积达到3,400平方英里（8806平方公里），是南半球较广大的都会区之一。墨尔本城市环境非常优雅，曾荣获联合国人居奖，并连续多年被联合国人居署评为“全球最适合人类居住的城市”。
Why light gauge steel framing?
Very simply, a light gauge steel frame is a high quality product. It represents value for money and brings peace of mind带来内心的平静. A light gauge steel frame is light and strong更轻更强: it will not burn不燃烧; it is termite防白蚁, borer, and fungus-proof耐盐雾; and it will not shrink or warp不收缩变形. It is environmentally responsible环境友好型, low on life cycle energy usage全寿命周期低碳, recyclable and saves timber resources节约木材. Steel Frame’s frame is between 33% and 50% of the weight of a comparable timber frame自重是相同木结构的33%-50%, with a far higher strength to weight ratio有更高的强度重量比. Steel features one of the highest strength to weight ratio of any conventional building product钢材是常用的强度重量比最高的建筑材料. Steel is incredibly accurate with tolerances in the 10ths of a millimetre, not in 10s of millimetres产品的精度是1/100mm级别的. Your window and door openings will be precisely placed, perfectly square (or perfectly tapered depending on your design) 你的门窗洞口要多少就是多少，分毫不差meaning fitting will be faster and easier意味着安装更快捷简便. Because steel doesn’t warp, twist, bow or settle you will experience less ‘nail pops’ requiring rectification. You will also experience drastically reduced instances of doors and windows sticking as the house settles, because a steel frame never ‘settles’, its engineered to maintain its dimensions for the lifespan of the building.
Steel is 100% recyclable (in its purest sense) and has a virtually infinite life span; it’s the most recycled product on the planet. Termite treated timber is un-recyclable (straight to landfill) and almost all other timbers are only down-cyclable.钢材是百分百回收的，是这个星球上回收最……
Steel is 100% termite PROOF, requires $0 of termite treatment and $0 of ongoing termite maintenance.较少防白蚁方面的花费
Steel is 100% non-combustible, it will not burn or ‘char’ and it will not contribute to a fire, or the spread of fire. In a bush-fire, ember attack to a steel house frame and roof space will not ignite the frame.在山火区，山火不会引燃结构框架。
What underlies the quality of a light gauge steel frame?
Light Gauge Steel is an engineered product, not an organic one. Being engineered means movement over time is eliminated, as a steel frame will not settle like other products.LGS是一个预制产品，可以减少现场的管理成本。
BlueScope Steel, a quality-accredited producer to the appropriate National Standard Specifications, produces TRUECORE® steel in a Light Gauge Steel (LGS) Frame Solutions frame. The components are precision manufactured and assembled to very tight tolerances using advanced techniques. Dynamic Steel Frame uses the most advanced framing system available in the world today, combining design and engineering software and an automated roll former to produce frames, trusses and joists quickly and accurately. Strength and performance are engineered into the frame, allowing Dynamic Steel Frame to provide the best possible product to its customers.原材料采用博思格优耐板
What’s the warranty on TRUECORE® steel?
TRUECORE® steel used in IPG Steel Frame’s wall frames and trusses come with a 50 year warranty* from BlueScope Steel. A great reassurance in anyone’s book! For more information on the 50 year warranty, including the terms and conditions, visit BlueScope Steel’s warranty website.可以用50年，相关质保文件可以在truecore网站下载。
Will a light gauge steel frame rust?
IPG Steel Frame’s LGS frames are made of steel protected against corrosion by a hot-dipped metallic coating of a zinc-aluminium alloy. In external applications such as roofing, these products are exposed to the elements and have excellent durability, so in less exposed applications such as inside the building envelope they weather more slowly. Where there are cut edges, the galvanic action, or sacrificial protection, of the coatings protects the exposed steel edge against corrosion.会生锈吗？所有原材料采用热浸镀铝锌涂层，在切口部位，涂层会像美国总统的保镖一样，先牺牲自己。
Is a steel frame noisier than other stud frame buildings?钢结构比木结构噪音大吗？
No – this is one of the most ‘popular’ myths of light gauge steel framing. IPG Steel Frame’s light gauge steel frames are no noisier than other stud frames and there is some evidence to suggest the contrary. Studies conducted by CSIRO found that “most occupants of homes with steel frames either reported no sound emitted from the frame or said that if it did, it was not a problem”. In fact, some volunteered that there was less noise than previous timber framed houses.
Steel expands and/or contracts as the temperature changes. Is this a problem?刚结构的热膨胀性能如何
In a properly constructed and insulated home by IPG Steel Frame, thermally induced movement is not an issue. Steel is engineered, inorganic, will not rot, warp, twist, bow, shrink or settle. There will be far reduced instances of plaster or cornice cracking because steel doesn’t change state during its lifespan, which means it is highly unlikely that there will be noise, and in fact, because a steel frame doesn’t settle over time you enjoy LESS issues with movement such as sticking doors, windows and so on.在做好保温构造的前提下，这不是问题
Termites can still attack the rest of a home so do steel frames make much difference?白蚁仍然可以攻击家里的其它东西，用你这个产品会带来什么不同？
The truth is there is nothing as catastrophic as the destruction of the primary structure of a house – the frame. Destruction of the frame by termites can be silent and invisible to the eye. Rectification of the frame can require complete replacement of other building components such as plumbing, electrical, plasterboard, skirting, architraves, kitchens, bathrooms, tiling and painting. However, Dynamic Steel Frame’s LGS frame is 100% termite-proof, ensuring no damage at all is done to the frame of the home through termites.
