Metal structures are mostly used for commercial and industrial buildings, such as offices, factories, prefabricated halls, warehouses, steel storage tents, and temporary structures, such as aluminium platforms and scaffolding. Metal structures are becoming popular in family houses, e.g. metal staircases, canopies over pavements, carports, etc. Metal can really give you a dream house as it allows an architect or a designer make all kinds of shapes. Steel is an ideal building material thanks to its great tensile strength (great for bridging big gaps), elasticity, and flexibility, which enables fast and precise assembly, glazing of large surfaces, and easy maintenance. A steel structure can be easily joined to other materials by welding, screwing, or forging. It’s incredibly sturdy and resistant to earthquakes, and it’s made up of posts, beams, and brackets made of suitable materials of varying profiles: I, IPE, HEA, HEB, HEM, U, L, boxes, and pipes.
