In the fall of 2017, work began on the Century Project in Seattle, Washington. This project revolved around the renovation of the iconic Space Needle. The 56-year-old structure was in need of a long list of improvements, with the most evident being the observation deck.
Architectural Bollards can serve several purposes. Two of the most common are for accessibility as well as aesthetics. One recent job in New York City required stainless steel bollards to serve both of these functions which was a perfect fit for laser-fused stainless tubing.
ASTM International just recently published the new revised standard A1069/A1069M-19. This is the standard specification for laser and laser hybrid welded stainless steel bars, plates and shapes. This revision provides some distinct advantages to engineers and architects for when they specify A1069 for their projects.
The University of California San Diego is home to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. One of this research institution’s unique facilities is the Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier. Located right on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, this pier was in need of a railing replacement. Greenfield Fence in Oceanside, California, performed the fabrication and…Details
Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the demand for stainless steel split wide flange beams, or more commonly called W Tees. There are several characteristics making these profiles more popular and Stainless Structurals America is here to meet the market demand.
To assist architects, engineers and designers with using stainless steel structural profiles in their designs, Stainless Structurals America has now made Revit files available for the standard sections. Please continue reading below to find out more information.
When designers in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industries see the name Stainless Structurals, they of course think about our common stainless structural sections. We are more than just a structural profile company. Did you know we can produce both carbon and stainless steel sections in many different alloys and in a variety of shapes,…Details
One of the fastest rising stainless steel alloys of choice in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industries is duplex stainless steel. Designers are specifying duplex stainless steel when high strength and good corrosion resistance are required. Stainless Structurals America has recognized the need for duplex and has offered our full range of structural shapes in…Details
Thermal conductivity is the process by which thermal energy is transported through matter, giving the material the ability to conduct heat. Conductivity, or conduction, is normally measured in watts per kelvin per meter. A watt is a unit of power, typically defined either as volts time’s amps or as joules of energy per second. Kelvin…Details
Architects and engineers look at many different factors when selecting which building materials to use for their projects and designs. The one key characteristic for choosing stainless steel is its corrosion resistance. Finishing treatments like passivation and pickling are what help stainless steels keep their corrosion resistance for so long.
