STRUCTURAL STEEL IS CARBON STEEL WHICH MEANS IT HAS CARBON CONTENT UP TO 2.1%
Low-carbon steel commonly known as mild steel is the most commonly used steel for construction and building materials.
Structural steel has many different shapes – this being the profile formed with a specific cross-section, for example.
- I-Beam: this is an I shaped cross-section capped with flanges on either side.
- Z-shape: this is half a flange going in opposite directions resembling a Z.
- Angle: this is an L-shaped cross-section.
- Tee: this is a cross-section
Because of the ductility of structural steel and the variants of shapes, thickness and sizes can be customized to meet the most specific building needs. Our Fabcon Steel structural steel division manufactures both heavy and light engineering products ranging from warehouse structures to steel de-coiling spools. Our product range caters to high-end housing products such as steel beams, mullions, staircases, including steel shutters for concrete cantilever or central spine staircases.
