Design and construction projects are accomplished with many different materials. Each of them has certain benefits, both conceptually and technically. Stainless steel represents a decisive choice from the design stage.
The Logic Behind Building Construction with Stainless Steel
Regularly utilized as a structural material, stainless steel can be present everywhere in building construction and to varying degrees. Companies use it for interior and exterior wall designs, floors, and partitioning. Furthermore, architects, engineers and customers utilize stainless steel in both structural and finishing work, depending on their desire. Workers prepare and shape the material mainly in the workshop. Its products arrive on the site ready to be assembled, whether they are stainless beam, stainless channel, stainless angle or stainless custom shapes, .
The logic of construction with stainless steel is a logic of assembly or support. Construction workers make a frame for the elements of floors, walkways or partitions. According to the project, it may utilize a stainless beam, a stainless channel, a stainless angle or stainless custom shape. Again, the technical choices make it possible to take advantage of the architectural capabilities of the material.
Stainless steel lends itself to all kinds of implementations and offers a wide range of construction aspects. It may consist of truss beams, curved beams, alveolar beams, arches, and be associated with building construction from the ground up. Stainless Structurals can help with any of these products required.
Strength and Durability
In early construction days, companies used cast iron because they could mold it easily. One big issue was that it was brittle and almost impossible to forge. From the early 19th century onwards, the use of cast iron changed gradually to that of carbon steel but it also had its limitations and disadvantages.
Enter stainless steel into the picture. Stainless steel is more durable and has higher yield strengths than the carbon counterpart. Certain alloys like duplex stainless can give you an even higher yield strength while not losing corrosive properties. Stainless steel structures will last a lifetime and will eliminate future replacement costs. When utilizing stainless steel for construction, Stainless Strucutrals has all the shapes and sizes you will need. Contact us today for your next building construction project.
