Why steel is the best material for industrial building!

Written By Rob NSB

May 31, 2019

Industrial building is the construction of an establishment in (usually) a “heavy-duty environments”. Partaking in this is a surprisingly strenuous process for many.

Corporations and individuals both really have to consider what kind of materials are needed, especially since there is a multitude of implications that may arise in a certain habitat. According to a study, stock prices for steel have recently been dropping; this begs the question ‒ is it still a viable option for such construction?

Today, we will be covering our reasons why steel is indeed a great resource. This material is well known for being durable ‒ but what other beneficial properties does it have?

LOW COST AND EASY MAINTENANCE

Though steel may not be the cheapest of materials, it has a ridiculously low maintenance cost, due to it being so resistant to corrosion and rust. Without having to constantly add varnish or protective layering, the affordability (‘cost-effectiveness’) can really benefit industries in the long run.

One could even go as far as to say there is no maintenance required!

In fact, most steel industrial complexes come along with an astounding 25-year ‘rust-through perforation warrant’, essentially giving you coverage for a very long time!

HIGH DURABILITY

As we mentioned before, steel is extremely durable. Steel is amazing for all sorts of designs since it’s flexible and can be bent tremendously. One of the main reasons steel is so strong is because it has a very high ‘strength to weight’ ratio (especially in comparison to wood or other building materials) ‒ this not only makes such buildings sturdy but also provides more protection against natural disasters.

CONTRIBUTES TO ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Steel is actually one of the most reusable materials in the world. According to a study done in North America, approximately 69% of it is recycled yearly ‒ actually, over 600 steel/tin cans are being recycled per second (that’s more than paper, plastic, wood and other materials combined)!

In addition, it is very easy to cut steel into manageable and precise shapes with certain tools so there aren’t a lot of waste products left behind.

GREAT FOR BUILDING

Like we mentioned before, steel can be cut into precise individual segments, manufacturers can then deliver said pieces to construction sites for easy assembly (kind of like a ‘lock and key’ puzzle system!).

Steel is also a flexible/transformable material, and proves to be excellent for building various structures as it has this certain unique ‘versatility’ to it ‒ many companies bend the metal to form nice slanted or arched buildings.

Insulated Workshop – Beth Chatto Gardens

Our team is very pleased with the building and from our point of view it has been a pleasure working with you too.

It was an exciting project for us and the first building of this scale we have had – it was reassuring that you could take the time to talk us through the many options and you were very helpful and practical in your advice.

When we recover from the impact of Covid19 we may well be in touch for another building 😊

Workshop & MOT Bay – Steel Frame Building

We needed to extend our existing MOT Bays, Nat Steel came up with a geat design which enabled us to make the most of the limited room we had in our yard.  A couple of minor issues that were quickly resolved as we went along.

Cannot fault the service received and the building is great.
