Technological innovations have helped bring Modern Architecture to the forefront of today’s sustainable designs. Aesthetically pleasing concepts such as clean lines, rectangular forms, open concepts, and large glass spans are key characteristics of this style that emphasizes function. One technology that has emerged to help bring these designs to reality is Stainless Structurals’ laser welding…
Stainless Structurals recognizes the importance of stainless I beams in the vast world of construction, engineering, architecture and structural steel. The steel beam has been a workhorse of the industry since 1849 when patented by Alphonse Halbou of the company Forges de la Providence. Like Mr. Halbou, Stainless Structurals is forging its own path in…
Here at Stainless Structurals America we take pride in delivering a product that not only meets your standards, but also astounds you when you see our sharp cornered profiles. From an aesthetic standpoint, these sharp corners are loved from architects all over the world.
In 2021, the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) began a research project to investigate the structural performance of laser welded profiles in comparison with extruded/hot rolled austenitic stainless steel sections.
At Stainless Stucturals America, we realize the importance of providing architects, engineers, designers, fabricators and more with helpful resources to use in designing with steel profiles. With that in mind, we have added a brand new case study section to our website.
Many projects involving steel require sustainable material due to environmental factors whether they be stress, weather, corrosion, submersion, or some unique external factor. So what exactly does “sustainable” mean in this context? This blog will contextualize that exact definition for your ongoing and future projects and applications.
For years, there has only been a handful of design resources available to architects, engineers and constructors to use for their projects involving stainless steel. Over the past two years, Stainless Strucuturals has been a part of the committee that has now developed a full design standard for structural stainless steel.
The past year has been a very exciting one for Stainless Structurals America. After expanding our product lines and footprint in 2020, we continued our growth with several new initiatives implemented by both our production and commercial teams to help better serve our customers.
It’s good knowing you have options in design with regard to cost and flexibility. With Stainless Structurals’ laser fused and non-tapered carbon steel and laser fused and hot rolled stainless steel channel profiles, you have the flexibility put directly into your hands.
Our standard structural and custom profiles are used across many different industries. One of the recent trends for our profiles in architectural applications is that of stair stringers, treads and glass railing supports. Our sharp cornered profiles in both carbon and stainless steel provide architects with a clean, modern look for stair applications.
