Owner of The Silver Frames Company, Gary Knofflock, has been building homes since he was a teenager … in 2014 (hundreds of years later) he learnt of steel framing and upon researching it further, he was sold and he threw in timber framing once and for all. After meeting with FRAMECAD in Auckland, he gained their upmost respect with his knowledge and genuine interest in the product, to which he then bought a machine and hasn’t looked back.
Gary is also a chairman for NASH so not only is he highly experienced in the steel framing industry as well as highly respected by FRAMECAD … but he’s also highly educated in the NASH code, and knows more about steel framing than your average Joe Blog.
His team, who backs him 100% have the same drive and passion for building a better future for New Zealand and all around the world.
If you’re looking for a trusted, honest and knowledgeable team to take on your build, look no further.

We live in a world that is in constant motion. Technological innovation is reshaping old business models and approaches, and this is true even for brick-and-mortar industries like construction.
The Silver Frames Company uses the FRAMECAD System which holds many advantages over traditional construction techniques. The FRAMECAD design and build methodology is all about the rapid construction of quality buildings, and delivers a faster return on investment and new business opportunities.
Rapid construction, the smart way. The FRAMECAD System delivers large scale cold formed steel construction projects faster with its advanced steel framing automated process
We use the F325iT and the F325iT-L which are suited to construct walls, floors and roofs for 1 – 3 level residential, modular and transportable units, and light commercial construction. It can produce roof trusses up to 15m clear span and can be either factory-based or transportable in a mobile factory.
SOME OF THE MANY ADVANTAGES OF USING THE STEEL FRAMES COMPANY ...
FASTER RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Return on investment (ROI) is a critical factor in the financial analysis of any property development opportunity. When a property can be attained and developed in a short period of time, the ROI is realised faster and the response to meet immediate market demand is greater. Designing and building with The Silver Frames Company can lower both construction delays and long-term building ownership costs, leading to both immediate and long-term ROI on building ownership.
LENDS ITSELF TO OFFSITE CONSTRUCTION
Traditional building methods are typically vulnerable to bad weather or site limitations but with The Silver Frames Company offsite modular construction system, the majority of the construction process can occur in our controlled environment that’s not subject to environmental or weather conditions and then delivered to your site. This ensures greater efficiency and quality as a part of an industrialised process.
The strength and ductility of our frames makes them the ideal building material for all building types and forms. We offer larger span lengths due to less structure weight and increased space utilisation, making it possible to produce some architectural designs that are not possible with traditional methods, including the creation of innovative building shapes and nonconventional roof lines.
When manufacturing and constructing buildings, our system is faster than traditional methods, and most other steel framing companies. We use a state of the art design-led process, meaning that the need for skills to construct the building is more in the design stage and less so onsite.
REDUCED NEED FOR HIGHLY SKILLED LABOUR
The ease of our system is an attractive advantage. Lightweight designs, pre-fabricated frames, uniform quality, and quick and simple erection onsite using basic tools – all these factors reduce the need for highly skilled labour.
ENVIRONMENTALLY A BETTER CHOICE
With our state of the art roll-forming machines, waste is minimal due to accurate design and manufacture, reducing the environmental impact from waste going to landfill. Our steel is 100% recyclable which reduces the overall environmental impact of any waste created.
