Why many farmers opt for Zincalume® Steel



ZINCALUME® steel is a popular choice for many farmers, and why shouldn’t it be? It is a high quality galvanised steel that has the lifespan of up to four times that of other galvanised steel products. It is a product of the iconic Australian brand, BlueScope Steel and it simply looks amazing.

Sheds finished with ZINCALUME® steel are very stylish, look great and are expected to last for many years to come. Not to mention, farm sheds utilising ZINCALUME® steel sheeting are often much cheaper than COLOROND® steel.   

All of BlueScope Steel’s products have been meticulously tested to ensure they can best withstand the harsh and often unpredictable Australian environment. BlueScope is renowned throughout Australia, if not the world, for its strength and durability. 

However, it is important to note, that you may need to contact your local council or a building certifier to see if ZINCALUME® Steel is appropriate for your zoning – in most cases, it will be, but some regions do have restrictions. 

ZINCALUME® steel is a BCA-approved product and can be found on many buildings throughout the country. If you are looking for a high-quality steel building solution for your farm, then you will find it by contacting the team at Wide Span Sheds. If you can’t find a design that suits, we will simply design one for you. 

Wide Span Sheds is a ShedSafe Accredited shed company, giving you peace of mind that our buildings are engineered to meet the tough Australian engineering standards. Call us today on 1800 191 493.
