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.
Stainless Steel has become an increasingly popular construction material. It is used in architecture, maritime projects, landscapes, and interior design. Steel is likely the most common building material used throughout the industrialized world since the Iron Age.Details
Square edges, sharp corners and clean lines with no visible seams are a design favorite of many architects, sculptors, and even engineers. Exposed profiles in structural designs or curtain walls with these sharp corners, are a distinct characteristic of modern architecture. For years most thought these type of profiles were available only in aluminum. At…Details
At Stainless Structurals America, we are constantly looking at innovative ways to apply our cutting-edge manufacturing technologies throughout multiple industries. One such application that is increasing in popularity is our laser fused, sharp cornered square and rectangle tubing. We have seen the demand from engineers, architects, distributors, fabricators and OEM’s for this type of stainless…Details
Stainless steel is a material that design professionals have completely embraced for its beauty, versatility, corrosion resistance, sustainability, and strength. Engineers can also benefit from the inherent qualities of stainless steel, especially laser fused profiles. Engineers rely on the accuracy of the components they are working with. They must be as refined in the field…Details
This past summer in June of 2018, World Trade Center Tower 3 opened to the public. The tower opening marked the completion of four of the planned five buildings of the World Trade Center complex. The complex sits on the same site in Lower Manhattan as the original Twin Towers.Details
There are many benefits to choosing stainless steel for use in canopies, storefronts, and landscapes. It is an ideal metal for use in situations where exposure to the elements is of concern. Let us look at some of these benefits.
