When it comes to industrial and architectural metals, if you can dream it, chances are we can make it. Providing steel solutions has always been a priority at Stainless Structurals. Our goal is to provide efficient and sustainable steel and stainless steel profiles with a best-in-class customer experience. Here is an in-depth look at both the production technologies and product offerings for our standard and custom profiles.
Steel Profile Production Technologies
In today’s construction environment, architects and engineers continue to look for sustainable steel solutions. Many projects can use standard structural profiles while others may require a custom profile that is job specific. Within our family of companies, we offer an unmatched array of production technologies that are sure to find a way to produce your required steel profile
This technology, often referred to as laser fusion, is our most popular and efficient production method. It offers nearly limitless capabilities and design options. We routinely produce standard stainless steel structural shapes and both steel and stainless steel sharp cornered custom profiles by this method.
Our hot rolled product offerings are available in alloy, steel and stainless steels. These steel profiles are produced at the Swiss based Montanstahl. This is the most popular and economical method for larger quantities of standard or custom profiles.
This is the newest production method to our platform, performed at Montanstahl in Germany. This process allows for high design flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity. Steel profiles with complex shapes and geometries are produced by this extrusion method.
Cold drawing is performed at Montanstahl. This process is a precision reduction of cross sections of wire rod or pre-rolled profiles through a series of dies to produce the desired shapes. These are generally very small sections with tight tolerance requirements.
Also performed at Montanstahl, cold rolling is a process where profiles are produced by forming wire rod by a continuous rolling process at ambient temperatures. These are generally small sections with tighter tolerances.
Standard and Custom Steel Profiles
We understand that not all projects are the same. While many industrial projects may require standard structural shapes, most architectural projects require custom shapes. Fortunately, we can provide both standard and custom steel profiles.
Our most common standard profiles that we produce and stock in inventory are the stainless steel structural shapes. These are either hot rolled or laser welded and come in shapes such as angles, channels, beams, and tees. Standard profiles come in 20 foot lengths but can also be produced in lengths up to 45 feet long.
For custom shapes, the hottest product on the market right now is our sharp cornered steel and stainless steel square and rectangle tubing. Available in a size range from 1”x1” up to 20”x36”. These tubes are generally used in structural or architectural applications. When we say custom, we truly mean custom, by offering the following:
- Custom lengths and holes and slots in standard shapes
- Custom configurations and geometries
- Custom lengths up to 45 feet
- Custom alloys in carbon and stainless steel
- Very small minimum order quantities (as low as 1 piece)
- Ability to combine different alloys in a single profile
- Fabrication processes such as saw cutting, laser cut holes/slots, & machining
- Special surface finishes
- An experienced team ready to help
