New Castle Building Group launches “New Castle Steel”
New Castle Building Group has acquired the manufacturing and distribution capabilities of its new New Castle steel bridge framing, formerly known as Trex Elevations.
“I have worked in the construction industry for over 20 years and am passionate about building more sustainable decks and outdoor spaces for my clients. When the opportunity arose to make a quality lightweight steel product, I jumped at the chance, ”says Jason Alloway, owner of New Castle Building Group.
New Castle steel is coated in three coats to prevent displacement, cracking, warping, rotting or rusting, while precise engineering ensures surfaces stay flat. The Class IA firestop product is lightweight yet rugged enough to accommodate contemporary cantilevers and curved bridge designs. New Castle Steel contains 25% recycled steel and is a 100% renewable resource, contributing LEED points for construction projects.
