Steel Framework


Steel Framework

Our Steel Framework is made from Galvanised steel which ensures that your building is strong and will withstand any weather.

About our steel framework:

We use Galvanite in our Steel Framework. Galvanite is a range of hot-dip galvanised steel sheet and coil products.

Tata Steel combines 150 years of production experience and modern, sophisticated equipment to ensure a quality product with benefits such as:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Formability
  • High Strength
  • Galvanite is a range of hot-dip galvanised steel sheet and coil products

Galvanite has a corrosion resistant coating that remains firmly attached to the steel under the most severe forming operations. It continues to give general and sacrificial protection to all areas after forming and fabrication.

Corrosion Resistance

Of all the methods of protecting mild steel against corrosion, hot-dip zinc coating is the most common. A zinc coating protects steel in two ways:
It acts as a physical barrier between a potentially corrosive environment and the steel base.
The zinc coating gives galvanic or sacrificial protection at cut edges and at scratches.
In dry and unpolluted environments, steels with a coating of 19 microns of Galvanite hot-dip have a expected design life of 20-50 years.

European Standards

Galvanite complies with European standards and is also available to other national and international standards by agreement with Corus. Contact us for more information.

Shanette are pleased to announce that they achieved the CE Marking standard for steel fabricated sectional structures. EN 1090-1:2009 +A1:2011 Execution of Steel Structures.

“The achievement is one we are particularly proud of as it demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest quality products and services to our clients and further establishes Shanette as a leader in sectional Garages and insulated buildings. The certification is also a significant milestone in our continual efforts to improve and reflects our on-going investment in technology, development and process maturity.”

– Darren Keoghan MD

Shanette continue to be the class leaders by becoming the first manufacturer of sectional steel buildings in Ireland to be awarded the CE Mark.

There’s plenty of technical detail in the regulations, but the essentials are straightforward. They ensure a product that performs, is safe in use, and that all construction requirements are covered.

For Garages and Buildings, this covers features such as:

  • Wind and Snow loading resistance.
  • Water tightness.
  • Load bearing capacity.
  • Insulated properties.
  • Fully traceable parts and components.

In addition to these features, the certification covers our factory production control and helps to ensure that all the units we sell are of the highest quality and are fit for purpose. And, because we’ve got the CE marking sorted, that’s one less hassle for you to worry about.

Other companies build to their own standards where Shanette build to CE European standards.
