Fabricated steel and steel products are the heart and soul of most industrial sectors. It is hard to imagine the functioning of various industrial sectors without the application of structural steel. Metal fabricators are, therefore, revered for their expertise across all industrial sectors. So which are these industrial sectors that rely on steel products and fabrication services? Let’s take a look at top 6 industrial sectors where the use of structural steel is crucial.
These days structural steel is the most preferred construction material by architects, engineers, and contractors. The basic structure of a building is made using fabricated steel sections. Some of the steel sections used in constructing large structures are steel beams, girders, steel plates, and H-shaped steel sections.
The energy sector mainly comprises of companies dealing with oil and gas, nuclear power, and wind power. We have done a couple of fabrication projects for the oil and gas sector. The energy sector uses many structural steel products such as oil and gas well platforms, transmission towers, wind turbines, and pipelines to name a few.
The manufacturing sector heavily relies on steel products and fabrication services. Let it be any manufacturing industry, steel products are used in the manufacturing equipment and storage of products. Some common products used are steel ladders, platforms, industrial stairs, steel handrails, and mezzanines.
The shipbuilding industry has a long list of structural steel applications. Supertankers, small ferries, and some recreational boats are made using structural steel. Apart from this, there are fabricated steel sections, steel flooring and grating, ladders, steel sheets and stairs are all made with steel.
The main raw material for all automotive industries is steel. This itself is indicative of how important steel is to the automotive industry. Structural steel and other variants of steel are used to manufacture parts of cars and bikes. A lot of safety features are incorporated into different vehicles using steel.
Steel is closely linked with the mining industry for many reasons. Structural steel is used in mining infrastructure. Some of the steel sections used in mining are rails, beams, rods, grating, pipes, and fittings. It is also used to construct offices, warehouse buildings, workshops and storage places.
