Steel Construction Frames


steel construction frames

The development of steel construction frames lent itself to the construction of the skyscraper. A “skeleton frame” of steel columns and l-beams are attached to a rectangular floor, roof, and wall support grid. The result is a dependable, long-lasting, and cost effective construction. Building the first skyscraper would likely not have been possible without this technique.

Why Choose Steel Construction Framing?

Consider steel construction framing for its array of benefits:

  • Versatile
    • Steel is fantastically versatile. It can be molded into artistic shapes while also remaining safe and durable, thus offering commercial buildings a wide array of design opportunity.
  • Weather Effective
    • These structures are resistant to a variety of different weather phenomena that are common here in Miami. These include:
      • High winds
      • Fire
      • Heavy rain
      • Decay
    • The power that steel construction frames have is shown the most during hurricane season. They are able to protect your buildings and withstand even the harshest of conditions. 
  • Environmentally Friendly
    • As the trend of energy and environmentally efficient construction continues, so does the trend of efficient steel. Unlike other construction materials, steel is able to be recycled after its lifespan. This process can be streamlined using local waste organizations and their large waste recycling programs.  
  • Strong and Light
    • Buildings made with steel construction frames can have an enormous carry weight while weighing less than a construction frame made of wood. On its own, the density of steel surpasses that of a wooden slab cut in the same dimensions, yet the design of a steel L-beam may weigh less than the lightest wood beam of similar design.
  • Cost-effective and Efficient
    • As a result, these steel frames can be built quickly on-site and may be an affordable construction option because of reduced shipping material costs and a lesser need for overall labor.
  • Evolution
    • Like many aspects of the construction industry, steel is constantly in a state of evolution and innovation. In fact, steel structures today are drastically different than they were merely ten years ago. This speaks volumes into how much we are still learning about the benefits of steel. With each 

Inspired by catastrophic storms like Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the city of New Orleans, steel construction framing can also withstand several types of natural disasters. Steel’s flexibility encourages it to bend instead of crack under stress. Coupled with its resistance to salt corrosion, a frame composed of steel may be ideal for areas like Miami, FL, which endures the threat of wind and water damage every hurricane season. Its level of ability to withstand such natural disasters may be unrivaled.

Combining strength and flexibility, steel construction frames are meant to last. They rarely fail without advance warning and require little maintenance, making this construction technique an optimal economic choice for building owners. In fact, fees can remain low even 50 years into the steel construction frame’s lifespan.

Common Steel Building Materials

Here at Steel Beams Columns, we use the best material on the market to make our incredible steel construction frames. Here are just some of the materials that you can see during our construction:

  • Mild Steel 
    • This material is flexible when cold due to its low carbon rate and exhibits malleability not unlike iron, allowing for easy forming. High ductile and impact strength generates great protection to breakage. While higher carbon steels may break or split, mild steel’s flexibility allows it to bend instead.
  • Rebar 
    • Rebar consists of a mesh of steel wires, also known as a reinforcement steel, and is used as a tension device in structures using reinforced masonry and concrete. Though Rebar made of carbon steel is the most popular, it has also been made of stainless steel or composite bars.
  • Structural Steel 
    • This material can come in various shapes, all of which contribute to the overall construction process. It is a carbon steel with up to 2.1 percent of carbon content by weight that gives it incredible strength, yet lower ductility. Structural steel is one of the most common types of steel and is integral when producing steel construction frames.

Where Are Steel Construction Frames Used?

Strong, reliable, and cost-effective, steel construction frames can be found virtually anywhere. High rises are a great option for steel’s strength and speed of construction; warehouses and industrial buildings favor its budget-friendly ability to construct large spaces; while temporary structures ideally use steel, as it is quick to set up on-site. Here are some other places you can find steel construction frames being used:

  • High rise buildings
    • These are usually used because of its strength, low weight, and speed of construction.
  • Residential buildings
    • Using a technique called light gauge steel construction, steel construction frames are used to create a structure for newly built homes.
