GREEN BUILDING SOLUTIONS
With us - life goes on. Steel Home Company can design and build houses that conform to the new SANS 10400 XA energy efficient building code.
Lightweight steel houses can be designed to function off-the-grid. With a combination of gas and solar electricity as well as water recycling, the green building solutions we offer are energy efficient and guarantee better insulation, less wastage on site and a cost-effective alternative to traditional brick and mortar construction.
A light steel frame home is up to 40% better insulated than a conventional brick and mortar house, 25% warmer in winter and 15% cooler in summer. The wall to wall sound transfer is up to 40% better than a normal conventional wall, and it takes a third of the time to build with light steel at an average of 10% less than conventional costs. A lightweight steel house designed and built with energy efficient products, can also save over 70% of a household's local electricity infrastructure use.
