There are mainly three types of structures steel used in constructing buildings. Steel construction is also called steel fabrication.
First , Bolted Steel Construction:
Bolted steel construction occurs when steel fabricators produce finished and painted steel components, which are then shipped to the site and simply bolted in place. The bulk of the fabrication can be done in workshops, with the right machinery, lighting, and work conditions, thus, this is the most preferred method of steel construction. The size of the components is governed by the size of the truck or trailer they are shipped in. Once they are shipped to the desired location, the only work to be done at the site is lifting the steel structures into place with the help of cranes and then bolting. This way, the work at the site is tremendously fast. An example of bolted steel construction is pre-engineered buildings, as they are designed, fabricated, shipped and erected by one company to the owner.
Second, Light Gauge Steel Construction:
For residential and small buildings in North America and parts of Europe, Light Gauge Steel Construction is atype of construction that is common. This is quite similar to wood framed construction, except that light gauge steel members are used in place of wood two-by-fours. Light gauge steel is steel that is in the form of thin 1-3mm sheets of steel that has been bent into shape to form C-sections or Z-sections.
Third, Conventional Steel Fabrication:
When teams of steel fabricators cut members of steel to the correct lengths, and then weld them together to make the final structure, this is termed as a conventional steel fabricator. If done at the construction site, it requires a lot of manpower. However, for best results, it can be partially done in a workshop to provide better working conditions and reduce work-time.
Structural steel is fast to build on site,a lot of components can be premade in the factory. The raw materials steel can be made in different shape according to the production drawings. If you wish to know more about structural steel and the different types used in construction, Pls contact BR PREFAB factory for more information.
