EcoSteel is superior to traditional construction methods in every practical way.
Unlike conventional building materials, steel
doesn’t rot, warp, decompose, split or fall victim
to natural pests. EcoSteel is specially treated to
Square Corners Stay Squared
Steel is an unlimited resource that is produced
in strict accordance with national standards with
no regional variations and inconsistencies.
Windows and doors open and close as they should.
Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any
building material. It’s flexible, straight, non-porous,
durable, dimensionally stable and lightweight.
Specifically, EcoSteel ensures decades of maintenance-
free, energy efficient comfort and safety.
Unlike wood, steel framing doesn’t crack due
to shrinking or warping. EcoSteel’s frames and
steel insulated panels meet or exceed governmental
energy-efficiency standards. The tongue
and groove design creates a continuous, insulated
cocoon, preventing the air leaks that result in
costly energy loss. The R-24 “whole wall performance”
of a standard EcoSteel 3” insulated
panel is more than 2.5 times higher than a
timber framed 2x4 batt insulated wall.
Extreme Weather Conditions
With drastic temperature swings and high winds
or earthquakes, EcoSteel stands strong. They have
even designed a line of homes engineered to
withstand over a 150 MPH wind load, exceeding
one of the toughest building codes in the US
EcoSteel systems are constructed with 76%
recycled steel. The overall recycling rate in
the steel industry is 75% making it the most
recycled material in North America. There is
typically only 2% waste using steel versus 20%
with wood construction.
EcoSteel significantly reduces the fire hazards
posed by the many combustible materials common
in most homes and offices today. Insurance
rates may be reduced by using fire resistant
structural materials such as steel.
EcoSteel practically eliminates the possibility
of mold growth and the related health risks
found in some buildings built with conventional
