NEW : WikiSteel

beSteel introduces WikiSteel - a knowledge base for all things concerning light gauge steel framing.  This will be the go-to page with practical subjects, theoretical contemplations and general information for all that consider building with steel framing.

The intention is to create an open platform, to which everyone can contribute, send in their own articles or suggest additional subjects.

High-quality galvanised steel.

In order to offer you the best, we use high-quality galvanised steel with an exceptional coating.  This Magnelis® coating garantees a substantial  and highly durable surface protection for numerous applications.

The Magnelis® steel is hot dipped in a traditional galvanization bath which contains 3.5% Aluminum and 3% Magnesium.  This 3% Magnesium is essential.  It allows for a stable and durable film to be created all over the surface, thus guaranteeing a corrosion protection that is much more efficient than coatings with a lower percentage of Magnesium.
