Earthquakes are unpredictable phenomena and the flexibility of the steel allows to respond promptly to this type of emergencies. It bends under extreme loads and the building does not collapse. The connections between the beams and columns of a steel building are designed, primarily, to support gravity loads. Steel Fabrication Services offer products capable of efficiently responding to lateral loads caused by wind and earthquakes.
Steel structures respect the environment. Steel structures can be much lighter and less cumbersome than concrete buildings. Materials that are easier to move, reduce transport and use of fuel. The recyclability of 100% steel allows it to be re-used without leaving any waste on site. Steel also allows low energy consumption, as heat radiates rapidly and generates a cooler home environment in warm climate areas. Where the problem is cold, applying double walls with steel panels creates an insulation that better contains the internal heat.
