Shanette Steel Frames excels in designing and supplying structural steel frame system solutions tailored for residential, commercial, and industrial projects. Our systems are carefully engineered, leveraging the axial capacity of our LGS studs available in U & C profiles.
At Shanette Steel Frames, we are committed to staying at the forefront of technological advancements. Through significant investments, we have embraced the latest innovative technologies for the production of cold roll-formed steel sections, frames, and roof trusses.
Our LGSF (Light Gauge Steel Frame) System presents a comprehensive solution with fully designed and certified structural panel systems. These systems facilitate the swift construction of buildings, effectively reducing both time and labour costs for our clients.
We pride ourselves on offering a diverse range of solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of residential, industrial, and commercial projects. All our offerings are fully CE EN 1090 certified, ensuring the highest standards in the execution of steel structures.
Choose from our selection of options, including single-section component bundles (Stick form), pre-assembled steel frames, or fully pre-assembled structures, all meticulously designed and manufactured to meet our customers’ exact specifications
Whether you are a building contractor or a self-builder we have an experienced team that will guide you to your steel frame solution. Chat with us about your plans and we will gladly advise you on the options available to you.
Our skilled & experienced engineering team will work with your architect and project team, to design steel frame systems to suit your specific requirements. Technical queries will be answered and 2D and 3D drawings produced.
Manufacturing takes place at our facilities in Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath. We produce cold formed steel with modern manufacturing processes providing our clients with high quality CE marked steel frame solutions.
Pre-assembled frames are manufactured off-site at our facility. Once on-site the frames are simply bolted together. Pre-assembled frames can be collected on Returnable stillages or delivered direct to site by our fleet of trucks.
Shanette Steel designs, manufactures and builds framework for low rise housing and apartment units Utilising our Off-Site pre-manufactured structural frames and panels can speed up the construction process significantly and has a multitude of benefits.
All materials are CE marked and certified. Full ancillary certification is available for each product type. The entire design, manufacturing and supply process is managed by our dedicated and skilled team who use a fully integrated system which incorporates quality, environmental and health & safety management prerequisites into your project.
The Shanette Framing system is manufactured using Non-Combustible materials, and with the addition of quality Fire rated materials during fit-out will meet fire compliance regulations.
Shanette Steel Framing’s wall, floor and roof frames using high quality grade materials in conjunction with the latest technology that assists with thermal and acoustic properties. The build design incorporates the principles of passive house construction resulting in our product enhancing superior quality air tightness and energy efficiency. Our structural grade steels are extremely strong and can take snow load bearing weight and prove impressive with strong wind performance to European Standards.
The strength of light gauge steel frames allows longer span lengths and larger open spaces without the need for intermediate columns or load bearing walls.
Steel frames are precision engineered, dimensionally accurate, straight and true (there is no need for frame straightening), and they can arrive to site pre-fabricated and ready for installation. Builders and contractors have said that they appreciate the lightweight nature of steel. Delivery to On-Site improves on-site efficiency and also help to reduce waste and carbon footprint.
The frames manufactured by Shanette Steel Frames are formed to strict tolerances which fully complies to all relevant Irish and European certifications and Standards. Light gauge steel framing is a precision engineered product manufactured to accurate dimensions and this helps to ensure that framework is straight and true. Steel frames don’t shrink, twist or warp over time like wood, which would require builder call-backs and ongoing maintenance repairs.
Galvanized Light Steel is an incombustible material so it does not burn or contribute to the spread of a fire. Also it’s used in very hot and very cold climates and is a preferred product chosen by contractors and builders looking for energy efficient building materials.
The coating materials on our LGSF’s are certified and resistant in case of fire and dissipate the thermal bridges.
No. Light Steel Frame only uses galvanized steel profiles. They are profiled, cut and connected to each other by self-drilling screws, to form wall panels, floor trusses and roofing legs, as per engineering design. These parts are transported and assembled on site (as per request).
Steel frame manufacturers and fabricators can produce almost any one or two storey home design seen in Ireland today, and recently steel frames have been used in some three and four storey designs. Because house frames made from Shanette Steel have a high strength-to-weight ratio and stay straight and true, they’re an ideal choice for modern home design. Long spans, open plan living spaces, architectural rooflines; they’re all possible with the inner strength of Shanette Steel Frames.
No, because any trade can work with steel framing. Bricklayers can install the brick ties by simply clipping them into the stud and plasterers appreciate the straight lines of a frame made from Shanette Steel Frames. Pre-punched electrical and plumbing service holes help make installation easier for plumbers and electricians. Most frames are installed by qualified framers who can work with both steel and timber. Trades are increasingly becoming experienced with working with steel as more builders adopt steel framing in their building designs.
Yes. A frame made from Shanette Steel Frames can be lined, insulated and clad in a variety of ways which can deliver the desired thermal and acoustic properties.
