Steel is a remarkably flexible material for construction and building, making it ideal for various industrial applications. Due to its strength and versatility, steel is a popular choice for building structural elements such as platforms.
Steel platforms are a ubiquitous feature in both commercial and industrial spaces, whether serving as part of a mezzanine, staircase, passage, or catwalk. With its durability and functionality, steel platforms can last a lifetime.

What Are The Uses of a Steel Platform
No matter what industry sector you are looking to build in – be it industrial or commercial – maximising space will be a chief concern from the start of the project, and an excellent way to achieve this is to look up. A steel platform may be the perfect to solution to any spacial issues you are trying to resolve.
A platform may be used in a commercial space as a viewing balcony. And in industrial spaces they may provide an room for an office space, while ensuring no space is lost for storage and other purposes. Depending on the space, a platform may be free standing, or be integrated into other structural elements of a building, and they are usually accessed via a short staircase.
Platforms are also crucial in shipbuilding and other manufacturing facilities.
Why Build With Steel?
Steel is the best material for industrial or commercial walkways or passageways for a number of reasons:
Strength – Steel has extremely high tensile strength. It is an durable alloy, made up of strong materials that discourage dislocation at an atomic level. You can rely on the strength of steel no matter how heavy the load or rough the conditions.
Durability – Steel won’t rot, it isn’t combustible, and bugs have no appetite for it. If your platform resides outdoors or in volatile industrial conditions it the only choice. High heat, extreme cold, gale force winds or torrential rain, you can count on steel.
Sustainability – Steel is one of the world’s most recycled materials, with a global recycling rate of over 90%. It can be melted down and re-fabricated an infinite amount of times without losing its structural integrity and therefore is highly sustainable.
Economical – In spite of its many perks, steel is actually very economical. Because building with steel takes considerably less time than building with other materials, it will save you money on labour hire. Steel fabrication is also a cost efficient process, and we pass the savings onto our customers.
Surface Treatment – No matter what environmental conditions may pose a risk to your steel, surface treatment can offer the protection you need.
Reduced Weight – Believe it or not, building with steel results in structures that are lighter than wood. As a result, there will be less strained place on foundations when building platforms with steel.
Versatility – Steel is one of the most versatile building materials on the market. Fabricators can mould steel into pretty much any shape, which can result in creative designs that fit perfectly in the designated area.
