3 Different Ways Structural Steel Has Changed the World

The Importance of Structural Steel Fabrication in the Construction Industry

Structural Steel Types and Grades

Structural steel comes in various shapes and grades to meet specific design requirements. The most commonly used shapes for structural steels are I, T, and C, which are classified by the shape of their cross-sections. The grade of the steel affects its mechanical properties, and different grades must be chosen according to design requirements. Here are some of the standard structural steel materials:

  • Carbon steels:
    Carbon steel is defined as steel that does not require the addition of any other alloying element, such as tungsten, zirconium, cobalt, or nickel. Its copper content should not exceed 0.4%, and other elements such as silicon, manganese and copper should not exceed specified percentages in weight. Carbon steels are categorized by their carbon content as low-carbon, medium-carbon, high-carbon, and ultrahigh-carbon steels. They are primarily used in structural pipes and tubing.

  • High strength low alloy steels:
    This type of steel is designed to have better mechanical properties and be more resistant to atmospheric corrosion than carbon steel. It can contain up to 2.0% manganese; small amounts of other alloying elements such as chromium, nickel, molybdenum, nitrogen, vanadium, niobium, and titanium can be added to alter the properties. Weathering steels, a sub-type of high-strength, low-alloy steels, are highly resistant to atmospheric corrosion by forming a passive, rust-like layer on the surface. They are commonly used in structural shapes and plates.

  • Forged steels:
    Forging is the process of shaping metal in a solid state by applying thermal and mechanical energy to steel ingots or billets. This process introduces a uniform grain structure to the material, decreasing discontinuity in the matrix by removing voids and gas bubbles and increasing overall strength.

Structural Steel Grades

Many standards worldwide define structural steels by their shapes and dimensions. These standards specify the angles, tolerances, dimensions, and cross-sectional measurements of the steels and assign them names accordingly.

Understanding structural steel's different types and grades is important for choosing the right material for specific applications. Reach out to us for any information you are looking for.

Structural Steel Types and Grades

Angles: These L-shaped steel sections are commonly used for bracing, framing, and support structures. The angles, available in various sizes and thicknesses, ensure stability and structural integrity in your projects.

 

Tubing: Our steel tubing options provide versatility and strength, ideal for applications such as handrails, machinery frames, and architectural designs. With precise dimensions and high-quality construction, our tubing guarantees optimal performance and durability.

 

I-beams: Known for their distinctive H-shaped cross-section, I-beams offer superior load-bearing capacity, making them indispensable for building frames, bridges, and heavy-duty structures. Terrick Enterprises Ltd. supplies exceptional quality and strength I-beams to meet your project requirements.

 

Wide flange beams: With a broader flange than standard I-beams, wide flange beams distribute weight more evenly, enhancing stability and structural integrity. Our wide flange beams are engineered to withstand heavy loads and provide long-lasting support for industrial and commercial construction projects.

 

Channels: These C-shaped steel sections are commonly used for structural support, framing, and reinforcement. We offer various channels for various applications, ensuring reliable performance and durability.

 

Plates: Our steel plates are available in various thicknesses and dimensions, making them suitable for diverse structural and construction projects. Whether you need floor, base, or structural steel plates, we provide high-quality options to meet your specifications.

 

Bars: From round bars to square bars, we offer a comprehensive range of steel bars to suit different construction requirements. Our bars are crafted with precision and durability, ensuring optimal performance in various applications, including reinforcement, framing, and fabrication.
