Industrial steel structure is the most common option when it comes to design and construct industrial buildings due to its strength, reliability, durability, safety, and also ease of construction. It is ideal for manufacturing, petrochemical and other industries that require large plants for massive production. As a trusted steel structure company, we offer unique quality and environmentally friendly products and ensure a lower cost.
Different Types of Industrial Steel Structures
Structural steel is the most commonly used material to design and construct industrial buildings. We offer a variety of types to meet your project’s requirements.
- Light steel structure
The light steel structure is an ideal solution to erect industrial buildings as it makes the construction fast, easy and cost-effective. With steel frame, it is possible to create large free spans and useful spaces for workshops, warehouses, shed and other industrial plants.
- Heavy steel structure
As an economical material for the construction of factories, manufacturing and processing plants, the heavy steel structure is very reliable and durable. It uses high strength grade of steel and can be designed and constructed with a specific size and shape.
- Steel structure with crane runway beam
If one or more overhead cranes are required to be installed in the newly-built facility, then the runway beams will be installed during the steel construction process. Thus in the selection of steel structure, you need to specify the crane load capacity and runway length in order to determine if the building structure can handle the loads that are generated by the installation of overhead crane systems. In addition to steel structure costs, there will be added costs for the design, fabrication, delivery and installation of crane and runway system.
- Steel structure without crane runway beam
If you do not need to install an overhead crane system, then the industrial building steel structure design will be much simpler and less expensive.
In addition, the industrial building of steel structure can be designed to be single-span, double-span and multi-span. With our professional technical team, we are able to design a perfect solution to meet your project’s specifications.
Features of Industrial Steel Structure Building
- The steel structure industrial building has light weight, great strength and large span.
- It has a shorter construction period and lower investment cost as compared to other building forms such as concrete construction.
- The industrial steel construction is very environmentally friendly as the steel materials can be recycled without pollution.
- It has excellent fire resistance and corrosion resistance.
- It can last for decades and requires minimal maintenance.
- The structure can be easily adapted to future uses since it can be easily modified, strengthened and extended.
- The industrial metal buildings can be custom designed and constructed to meet your project’s applications.
Wide Applications of Industrial Steel Frame Buildings
These different types of steel structures can be adapted to almost all sorts of applications, including but not limited to:
- Industrial sheds
Industrial shed steel structure can be small or large for your projects. It is designed for various purposes, such as designing, processing and storing materials.
- Industrial workshops
Based on the requirements, industrial steel structure workshops can be made with single-span and double-span. They have many uses, such as manufacturing and repairing goods.
- Industrial warehouses
The industrial warehouses can be small or huge to store raw materials or manufactured goods. It can be designed and built with the right dimensions and features as per the requirements.
- Industrial process plants
These plants usually involve large and heavy machinery to process materials. Therefore, the steel structures must be designed to be durable, flexible, reliable and adaptable.
Industrial Steel Structure Design
The design of industrial steel structures is in line with industry and national standards to ensure safety and reliability. The construction of steel structure generally uses steel beams, columns, trusses and so on. Each building can be custom designed and constructed as per the requirements.
Steel columns – these columns can be H shape of equal section or variable section. When the horizontal span of the facility does not exceed 15m, and the column height does not exceed 6m, an H-shaped steel column of equal section is usually adopted. The material for the construction of column is Q235B or Q345B.
Steel beams – the most commonly used welded steel beam is an I-shaped section that consists of upper and lower flange plates and webs. The main material is Q235B or Q345B.
Trusses – they are used to support roof and wall panels. There are variety of structural steels for you to choose from, such as C-shaped and Z-shaped steel.
We can help you design your industrial facility with the right features you require, and at the same time, save efforts and time, reduce costs. For further information, talk to one of our professionals online.
The industrial structural steel construction can offer:
- Thermal insulation
- High quality
- Speed of construction
- Wind resistance
- Fire resistance
Do You Need A Prefab Steel Structure?
The prefabricated steel structure, as the name implies, is pre-engineered in the manufacturer’s plants in order to meet the standards of designing facilities. All the main components will be processed and fabricated prior to the delivery, including pre-punched, pre-drilled and pre-welded. And then they are erected at the desired location. This type of building construction becomes fast and easy, as well as cost effective. Besides, it is ruggedly constructed to ensure it withstands harsh weather conditions.
Single-storey Steel Structure Building Parameters
Length: according to your requirements
Column spacing: generally 6m. Besides, 7.5m, 9m and 12m are available.
Span: 9-36m (when the span is large, you need to determine the number of spans.)
Height: 4.5-9m (without installing a crane)
When you need to install an overhead crane system inside the facility, you should specify the crane model and lifting height.
Wall and roof insulation: available
