Madray Steel & Habitat for Humanity "Green" Home

Madray Steel & Habitat for Humanity team together to build a "Green" Steel Frame Home Able to Beat Hurricanes, Earthquakes Floods & Fires. Steel frame home built by volunteers. The entire frame was done in only 6 hours!!! The frame is hurricane-proof, earthquake-proof, insect-proof and fire-proof!

Residential and commercial steel frame buildings and trusses that stand up to hurricanes and earthquakes. Our system is strong, fast and easy… virtually anyone can learn to build regardless of prior education or language.

Great Buildings start with a great frame.

Whether you are building a hotel or a third world shelter home, we have your solution.

Strong, Fast, Easy
The building system was designed with several important aspects in mind:
The system must be strong enough to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes
The system must be able to be constructed very fast.
The system must be designed so anyone, regardless of language, can easily learn and use the system.

And that is exactly what we did.

Madray Steel has developed and patented the ONLY pre-engineered light gauge steel connector plate system in the United States today, plus holds international patents in many countries.
The ease of assembly drastically reduces construction time and cost, minimizes skilled labor and expensive training programs. The standardization of the UNIVERSAL COMPONENT SYSTEM provides unlimited design capabilities (within U.S. building standards) for homes, schools, churches, hospitals, and other residential and commercial structures.

The steel connector plates are pre-engineered with a hole pattern that corresponds with the repetitive hole pattern on both sides of the structural Cee Channels and track. This method provides the versatility and strength needed to assemble numerous residential and commercial structures as well as various truss lengths and roof pitches, while eliminating unnecessary measuring, squaring, and cutting.
It is that simple… when the holes line up, it goes together and you are assembling it right. If the holes don’t line up, it will not go together and you are not assembling it right. It is a self-correcting system.
