Steel has become the most important element of any metal construction.
In the vast majority of buildings, a metal structure is used, which basically serves to support heavy loads.
In fact, it is one of the most reliable structures.
A metal structure is an elaborate metal frame made primarily of structural steel components connected together by means of horizontal beams and vertical columns hinged together to support loads and provide overall rigidity.
Due to the high strength of steel, these structures require less raw materials than other types of structures.
As a result, the steel structure can be used for a wide variety of applications such as:
- Single-storey buildings
- Multi-storey buildings
- In the construction of bridges, stadiums, airport terminals or industrial plants.
But steel brings many more advantages that are exploited for such metal constructions.
