4. Is my Shed made from Australian Steel or Imported Steel?

Most sheds are designed and built in Australia, but in some instances the shed and the shed steel can be made somewhere else. Steel made by BlueScope Steel is 100% Australian made and guaranteed to meet or exceed Australian Standards.

To comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) requirements, the steel used in your shed should comply with the relevant Australian Standards.

Look for the brand. To make sure you get genuine Australian Steel ask your Shed Builder to show you the brand marking printed on the reverse side of the steel. Made only by BlueScope Steel these registered brands have built a reputation as some of the most trusted building materials in Australia.

“Workmanship in your shed may have a warranty but what about the shed?”

In addition to the workmanship that goes into your shed, make sure the steel used in your shed has a warranty you can trust. Roofing an walling made from COLORBOND steel and ZINCALUME steel is backed by a warranty from BlueScope Steel right here in Australia.

“Will your shed stand up to Australia’s harsh conditions?”

Around Australia our scientists have been testing steel products for over 45 years in some of the country’s harshest climatic conditions. Australia has some of the highest UV levels in the world, which can play havoc with painted steels. As required by the Standard, testing is conducted for performance attributes such as blistering, cracking, flaking and peeling. In other words, Australian Colorbond Steel is tested against defects that you do not want to see appearing on your shed.
