Steel Structures South Africa

Steel Structures are widely used in Southern Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Congo because of thier inherent strength,cost effectiveness and the short time required to build. The structural steel is used to construct a framework or skeleton of a warehouse or factory building. It typically consists of vertical support columns and horizontal roof beams which are bolted or welded together to form a durable and stable structure.

This style of construction is commonly used in the industrial sector for warehousing and factories. The benefits of structural steel are its high strength with comparatively low weight. Because of its impressive load bearing capabilities, portal frames as they are also known, can span large areas, allowing for large open work areas.

The size of the structure, however, does not affect its strength. Steel buildings are able to withstand impressive forces such as wind and even seismic activity. The addition of bracing to a steel frame further increases a structure’s stability against lateral loads.
