Structural steel is a category of steel that is fabricated in a variety of shapes for use as construction material. Possessing superior strength, stiffness, toughness, and malleability, structural steel is one of the most commonly used materials in commercial and industrial building construction. Structural steel columns and beams create the framework that provides support for floors, roofs, cladding, fixtures, and finishings.
Steel construction companies in Dubai fabricate and use structural steel because it is one of the strongest, most versatile, cost-effective, environment friendly and durable construction materials in the global market.
Steel is 100% recyclable and can be recycled continuously without breaking or becoming weak. Additionally, the amount of waste produced during the steel manufacturing process is only 2%, much less than the waste produced from other materials such as wood.
Structural steel can withstand extreme weather, pressure changes, seismic activities and is resistant to pests, mites and decay. Even though a structural steel frame can be lighter than a wooden frame in most instances, steel is more durable and requires less maintenance, repairs or replacements.
Because of its durability, and because it can be recycled over and over again, structural steel is the most cost-effective construction material to use. It is also much faster to build with steel because it is lighter and arrives at the construction site pre-fabricated and ready to erect, decreasing construction time, and labour and resource costs.
Structural steel can be fabricated into any shape or form you can imagine. It can be shaped to support the unique designs of bridges, skyscrapers, aeroplane hangars, and countless other large-scale industrial and commercial structures.
