Steel Shed Group
The Group promotes Australian manufactured steel products used in construction of cold-formed shed structures, like sheds and garages and promotes steel shed industry compliance in the design, supply and construction principally of those types of structures. This is achieved by pursuing portable building compliance with Australian Standards (Building Code of Australia) and developing documentation formats that conform to local government and certifier requirements. Achieving industry compliance is linked to improving the credibility and sustainability of the industry.
The Steel Shed Group was formed as a representative group for the shed industry to:
- ensure that buildings comply with all relevant Australian standards
- improve credibility and sustainability for the steel shed industry
- have shed designs / documentation that conform to local government requirements
The Steel Shed Group works towards the promotion of Australian manufactured steel products and Australian capability in the efficient design, supply and construction of cold formed shed structures. It provides an independent industry forum for awareness, code position representation, government lobbying, industry education and technical representation, presentations and seminars. Membership consists of a broad range of shed manufacturers, roll forming companies and industry suppliers.
The ASI has launched a new industry benchmark for steel sheds called ShedSafe for built assurance, especially in areas that experience extreme weather. ShedSafe is a clear commitment by participating shed manufacturers and resellers that their design standards are according to the Building Code of Australia. It also guarantees that members have undergone ShedSafe training and submit to regular reviews of the manufacturer’s design principles and processes. Visit the ShedSafe website.
