Light Steel Framing

Steel is 100% recyclable and currently the most recycled product in the world. This green, environmentally friendly building alternative reduces our carbon footprint by up to 80% and allows us to apply future-orientated construction practices.


“The worldwide primary steel industry has recently vastly improved production processes to minimise energy consumption and pollution. A large percentage of all scrap from steel generated is re-used to produce new steel.”

    More than 95% of water used in the steel making process is recycled and returned – often cleaner than when it was taken from the source.

    Every piece of steel used in construction contains recycled content. All steel can be recovered and recycled again and again into new, high quality products.

    More steel is recycled than aluminium, glass and paper combined.

Using recycled steel for construction takes pressure off renewable resources. Framing a typical 186m² house out of steel requires the equivalent of about six scrapped, recycled  automobiles. The same house framed in wood requires lumber from 40 – 50 trees.

    Answer
  • What is Light Steel Frame construction?
    Light Steel Frame construction is an alternative building system, recently introduced to South Africa, used to build steel frame homes and other structures. Light Steel Frame construction offers a wide range of benefits that beat traditional brick-and-mortar buildings – it is greener, more efficient, quicker to erect and more durable.
    Answer
  • How sustainable is Light Steel Frame construction, considering it is relatively new to the South African market?
    We believe it is exceptionally sustainable. Between 2012 and 2014 Silverline Group experienced growth of 500% in an industry segment that is predicted to grow by 25% per year. On a global scale, 53% of all construction activity is in emerging markets and Silverline Group is ideally positioned to take full advantage of these facts.
    Answer
  • How eco-friendly is Light Steel Framing?
    There are many benefits – the water used in the steel making process is recycled and returned, often cleaner than when it was taken from the source; every piece of steel contains recycled content (it can be recycled again and again into new, high quality products); and more steel is recycled than aluminium, glass and paper combined. A typical house framed in steel, requires the equivalent of about six, scrapped automobiles while a similar house framed in wood requires lumber from 40 to 50 trees.
