4. Structural Steel: The Hardworking Backbone
Structural steel is perfect for a variety of construction projects. From small sheds to massive buildings, you'll find different shapes and types of structural steel just about anywhere. Steel Channels are often called upon for heavy industrial and transportation uses or agricultural tools, while steel bar grating is useful for drainage covers and load-bearing applications among others. For constructing sturdy buildings, it's hard to go wrong with S beams, and rebar provides necessary reinforcement for concrete buildings. When sturdy support is what you need, structural steel is often the right choice.
3. Purlins: Keep a Roof Above Your Head
When your project involves roofing, chances are you'll need purlins. The C purlins and Z purlins you'll find at Eagle National Steel are made from high-tensile steel, so you can rest easy knowing that your project's roof will stand up to the elements. What's more, you can get them cut or punched to exact specifications to make your steel building project that much easier.
2. Metal Building Accessories: Secondary But Still Important
Structural steel and purlins are great for the structure and roof of your steel building. However, unless you're building a box, you'll likely need some accessories. Insulation is an important part of many construction projects, and let's not forget about the doors and door frames. From eave struts to receiver channels, secondary structural steel components are too important to overlook.
1. Technical Documents & Material Safety Data Sheets
Technical documents may not actually be metal, but they're so important for your steel-based construction project that we felt the need to include them. Knowing about different tolerances, health hazards, and special precautions before you begin the job is always important. You'll also find important usage information for specific steel products. We strongly recommend checking out the appropriate technical and safety documents before beginning a steel construction project.
