Structural steel framing is an option for low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise building projects. It typically refers to building frame systems where the vertical and horizontal structural elements are formed by a system of structural steel beams and columns.
Metal building systems are professionally engineered structures for low-rise buildings. All major metal building system manufacturers utilize CADD tools to custom design each building system and all building components.
Steel joists are open web lightweight steel trusses consisting of parallel chords and a triangulated web system, proportioned to span between bearing points. It's used on a variety of projects: industrial, commercial and other unique applications.
Steel deck is profiled cold-formed sheet steel used as roof deck and typically made of coated cold-rolled steel. It is used as non-composite floor deck or composite floor deck. It is applicable to a wide range of projects and structural designs.
Metal roof and wall systems are available in a variety of stock sizes and finishes or can be custom-engineered to satisfy the requirements on anything from a simple, functional project to a highly complex, iconic project.
