Stainless Steel has established the industry with a popularity in construction material. It is majorly used in maritime projects, landscapes, architecture, and interior design. It is durable and can be shaped and molded into interesting forms. As it is 100% recyclable, it makes steel a desirable material in the current age of supporting environment and minimizing the carbon footprint.
Stainless Steel hold the quality of corrosion resistance. With the pristine finish, it does not require any kind of maintenance. While steel is an ideal material for a variety of construction projects, its environmentally friendly nature makes it even more appealing to engineers, artist, and architects.
The stainless steel can be repurposed, and taken from a destroyed building can be remanufactured and used in new construction. There is minimal waste and less to be dumped into landfills. According to the Steel usage Institute, steel is that the world’s most recycled material. This quality includes a terribly positive impact on the setting. There is significant savings in energy costs and emissions when repurposing steel into new components. Our natural iron ore reserves are limited. Harvesting the ore requires expensive extraction methods and environmentally detrimental mining practices. Recycled steel uses less energy to purify, refine, and reshape. It ought to be noted that the strength of the steel isn't compromised once it's recycled.
With stainless steel’s spectacular longevity, it's an additional property material than wood and different metals for construction. This includes structural components, roofs and installations exposed to water. Stainless steel is strong and durable enough to withstand high winds, rain, snow, and even seismic forces when engineered properly. Stainless steel has anti-corrosive properties and does not easily succumb to rust or exposure to air pollutants. Stainless steel is also a more fire resistant material than some other metal building components.
The latest trend in building exteriors is what are called rain screens. Simply put, these are energy efficient building enclosures that incorporate an insulation system, an air or moisture gap, and a protective cladding. These protective outer layers are often constructed of stainless steel panels. The thermal break channels, or fasteners, between the cladding and insulation are also commonly made from steel. This type of building enclosure allows for the expeditious removal of moisture. Building interiors result in being moisture free in high humidity climates, warmer in cold weather, and cooler in hot weather. The end result is a reduction heating and cooling costs and less mold issues.
Stainless Structurals stocks most standard structural sizes at our Conroe facility and we can produce custom shapes quickly to meet your requirements. Our customization and lead times make it easier to schedule a project and to erect quickly. This especially true for the laser fused, custom profiles. Laser fused profiles efficiently assembled once they arrive on the job site. The result is less carbon emission and minimal labor count. Laser fused profiles has extra energy usage with lesser construction time.
