Stainless Steel Fabrication in the Construction Industry
Stainless Steel Fabrication in the Construction Industry
August 23, 2019


Stainless steel fabrication has been able to transform the construction industry over the past few decades. Stainless steel itself is a more sustainable and cost-effective material that does not compromise on strength and durability. The process of welding has fundamentally changed the framework of modern structures, providing a much more solid foundation than traditional rivet-style construction. Refinements in contemporary welding techniques have paved the way for more complex and stylized architectural designs to be achieved.


Today we’ll discuss the reasons why stainless steel fabrication has become the go-to choice for constructing modern-day structures.


Material Benefits


Working with steel as opposed to other types of building materials offers a myriad of benefits including enhanced corrosion resistance, strength, durability, improved heat resistance, austenitic grades, and even aesthetic intrigue – making steel an optimal choice for architectural and construction applications.


Diversity in Application


While stainless steel fabrication is used to produce different components and structural products, it also provides a greater degree of flexibility in design and application. Buildings composed of structural steel allow for leeway for future modification in comparison to other conventional building materials. Vertical expansions, new applications, and other changes can be easily achieved if the building was built with a structural steel base.


Finding the Right Fabricator


The breadth of what is capable when working with steel can only be maximized when working with the right fabricator for the job. An experienced welder will utilize the proper techniques to heighten the strength of the steel material. Steel wouldn’t be as reliable for high-pressure or high-load applications without the use of fabricated components like columns or I-beams. Additionally, a proper understanding of how to best use structural steel can yield a more cost-effective yet durable final result.


That’s why it is essential to hire highly-experienced and qualified engineers for the job to ensure a high quality, cost-effective result every time. Luckily, Weld Rich and Steel offers the necessary experience and certifications needed to take on your next project. Regardless of scope and size, you can rest assured knowing we are fully capable of getting the job done as effectively and efficiently as possible.
