High strength steel is a material of the future. Not only does high strength steel offer a number of advantages which can be utilised in developing solutions to both every day and difficult or unusual engineering problems – high strength steel can offer environmentally positive benefits such as mass savings, reduced production costs, the possibility high load or high fatigue operations, and greater load carrying capacities.
The increased strength of BISALLOY® Structural steel grades mean engineers and architects can now design and write specifications for structures.
BISALLOY® Structural steel grades also make it possible to build taller towers, span larger rooms and specify smaller columns while actually reducing the amount of steel needed, with reductions in frame weight lead to savings on foundations, fabrication and construction costs.
High strength quenched and tempered steels offers the design engineer a number of advantages which can be exploited in developing solutions to both every day and difficult or unusual engineering problems. In some cases, mass savings of up to 30 per cent or more are possible in specific types of primary structural steel work. Longer spans, greater load carrying capacity and nett weight reduction to reduce foundation loads are all possible through the use of higher strength (up to 690 MPa yield strength and beyond) steel plate.
The benefits of BISALLOY® Structural steel also reach far beyond the construction site, with equipment such as dump truck bodies, storage bins, hoppers and chutes now able to be manufactured with an overall lighter weight while maintaining the same strength.
