The ENDUROFRAME® building system is a subsidiary of BlueScope Steel Ltd. It was established in 2011 to license the extensive technology that BlueScope Steel has developed in rollforming, light gauge steel frame building and design including several patents, as well as software developed for the design and manufacture of frames.
BlueScope Steel is a pioneer of the steel framing industry with the first steel frames supplied back in the 1950s. Over the years BlueScope Steel has driven development in steel house framing in the use of high tensile (550MPa) steel, and constantly improved the corrosion performance of steel frames to the point where we were the first to offer a warranty against corrosion. The differentiating factor has been one of unrelentingly pushing the boundaries of steel framing through research and development.

BlueScope Steel was one of the first companies to introduce an integrated Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM) house framing systems. SUPRACADD®, our previous steel framing software system was launched in 1995 and has had significant take up throughout Australia and South East Asia where BlueScope Steel is a significant manufacturer of steel frames in our own right.
BlueScope Steel has always written the code in the SUPRACADD® software, as well as the software that runs the rollformers that read the SUPRACADD® files. This strong control over the quality and integrity of all software that goes into the design and manufacture of our framing systems ensures that we can stand by the finished product. Through our Lysaght operations which operate over 50 plants in 13 countries, BlueScope Steel has gained extensive experience in rollformer design and development.
The new ENDUROFRAME® building system is the culmination of over 20 years of research and development into light gauge steel framing.
The newly developed ENDUROCADD® software system is the core of the ENDUROFRAME® building system and sets the standard for steel framing software packages in its ability to self-certify designs for non-cyclonic conditions. The ENDURO® rollformer is a high speed, specialist steel framing rollfomer. Its design is based on the specification of the best steel framing rollfomers BlueScope Steel operates across the world. It is able to manufacture all the sections required for a house frame with high speed precision.
