Metal has always been a material in high demand, but with the onset of industrial revolution and mass production, its usage skyrocketed. Iron, steel, stainless steel, and aluminium are the most popular metals in construction, where they’ve become almost irreplaceable in all forms (pure metals, alloys, processed materials) varying in mechanical, thermal, or chemical properties. Metal can be cut, tempered, bent, ground, welded, in other words, processed through different hot and cold working processes, to obtain the desired properties and shape. Metal can be used to make almost any type of structure—roofs, canopies, staircases, fences, doors, frames, parapet walls, etc., as well as smaller metal products, such as hardware and fasteners. The biggest advantage of metal structures is simple assembly and installation, hassle-free maintenance, and affordable pricing.
