Steel fabrication refers to the cutting, bending, and assembling of steel to create products and build infrastructure. Structural steel is the preferred material choice as it provides many advantages for welders, builders, and architects. While the following advantages are not meant to be exhaustive – many more benefits exist – here are the top three you can expect with steel fabrication.
Any structures, equipment, and other products created through steel fabrication are incredibly durable and functional. They are designed for longevity and require minimal if any maintenance when used for their intended purpose. Products, such as restaurant service counters and commercial kitchen ventilation systems, are designed to provide years of reliable use to the foodservice industry.
Most steel fabrication occurs in the shop, as this ensures the highest quality, most durable welds. The ability to be shop fabricated also reduces, if not eliminates, the potential for access or weather delays. Prefabricated sections or equipment can, after transport, then be efficiently constructed at the job site on schedule.
According to the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), structural steel contains 93 percent recycled steel scrap, on average. It also features a high recycling rate – 98 percent – with no loss of its physical properties. These, along with the industry’s reduction in emissions and increased water recycling, make structural steel one of the most environmentally-friendly materials for creating essential infrastructure.
