Structural Steel Engineering
We help builders
do their best work.
Steel buildings are the greenest option available in buildings today. Steel is also renewable, which simply adds icing to the cake. However, in case you are wondering about the quality of steel buildings, then be rest assured that steel is one of the finest steel building construction materials that can be used in today’s buildings
We work with all types of industries
Why use steel?
Steel is the ideal construction material owing to the properties it possess that are highly desirable for construction. The fact that it is very green construction should make the eco-conscious people aware of this option and to consider this very seriously if they want to make a difference.
Steel buildings have a plethora of advantages like strength, efficiency and cost. However, their real advantage comes not only from a lower initial building cost but also a lower operating cost. The best way to utilize this is to ensure proper insulation of your steel building so that you can save on your monthly heating bills.
Insulation helps in reducing conduction, convection and radiation heat losses from your steel building and can reduce temperature. An added advantage of most types of insulation today is that they also reduce noise and make your steel building construction sound proof to a good extent.
The most commonly used insulation method for steel buildings is fiberglass insulation. It acts as a blanket over your structure, thereby preventing heat losses. The thickness of this insulation layer greatly determines the efficiency of the insulation. A facing material needs to be used with this type of insulation, depending on the temperature conditions of your place.
Reflective insulation is also a preferred method of insulation that especially reduces radiative heat losses. It thus maintains a natural temperature inside your steel buildings. This type of insulation is made up of an outer layer of aluminum and an inner layer of some inert passive material that is a poor heat conductor. The most commonly used inner material is polyethylene or plastic because they are cheap and efficient. The good thing with reflective insulation is that it works well in both summers and winters, which means it acts like a natural temperature regulator and is simple to maintain.
