The steel framework is one of the most common frameworks globally, and it is a material used throughout the construction of many architectural fabrications.
The application is numerous, from steel sheet products and reinforcing bars, internal fixtures to structural and non-structural sections in buildings. Mild steel and stainless steel is also having high markets nowadays.
The mild steel is also known as Plain carbon steel. It is known for its strength and most commonly used steel for construction. It is used for both conventional and modern bolted pre-engineered buildings. It also acts as a Crack-resistant to a greater extent. Excellent weldability and hence can serve the purpose very well.
The most salient stainless-steel feature is rustproof, commonly used as landscape material for interior and exterior structural members that use stainless steel in building designs.
As a highly corrosion-resistant material, stainless steel is welded to use in the construction of buildings, in the field of chemical plants, energy-related devices. Stainless steel is used for columns, beams, and in general architectural structures; it is also applied to atriums, canopies, outdoor staircases, and swimming pool sheds for aesthetic appeal.
Stainless steel is widely used as a roofing material, as it is cost-effective. It is used in two ways of roof laying - seam joints for flat roofs and as a substrate for roof gardens and batten roll-in joints.
The Mild steel and stainless-steel material imply resource-saving and a lesser impact on the environment. It is flexible in combination with other materials. It is also earthquake-resistant due to its steel’s ductility. This provides fast on-site build for prefabricated buildings.Thus these material used mostly in building frame.
- It is reusable and endlessly recyclable.
- Contains at least 25% recycled steel.
- Enables energy efficiency in buildings and construction projects.
- Strong, requiring fewer beams and providing more usable open space.
- Light, requiring reduced foundations.
