Structural steel is a category that focuses on using the steel in constructions or building projects.
The steel is shaped in specific shapes in order to use it properly in construction. Here are most common shapes of structural steel:
I-beam: An I-shaped cross section with flanges on either side
Z-shape: Half a flange going in opposite directions resembling a “Z letter”
Angle: An L-shaped cross section
Tee: A T-shaped cross section
Bar: A rectangular, cross-sectioned long piece of steel
Rod: A round or square long piece of steel.
At Smith Metal Works we can customize the shapes, size and the thickness of the structural steel you need for your building or project in order to meet your needs.
What is Structural steel made of?
Structural steel is made of carbon steel and iron, but with different percentages depending on your needs.
The metal steel gives the material a high strength and low flexibility.
The carbon level will be determined based on how the steel will be used.
Structural steel’s primary purpose in industry is to form a skeleton that holds everything together, so it’s mainly used as a reinforcement material to counter concrete’s low tensile strength and ductility.
Did you know that Structural steel is considered to be one of the most reused materials in the world, because it’s 100% recyclable?
