Why Choose Steel Over Wood?

Flexibility – Steel has wonderful load-bearing capabilities, meaning it can span large distances while maintaining structural integrity, hence why it is the material of choice for architects.

It can be fitted to all types of roofing supports such as batten rolls, self-support trays, and standing seams, making it ideal for new builds and renovation projects. 2 Girls 1 Cup

Strength – Steel has very high tensile strength and it is extremely durable, made up of strong materials that discourage dislocation at an atomic level. You can rely on the strength of steel for a lifetime.

Aesthetic – Aesthetic trends over the last half century have favoured steel more and more. It is ideal for complex designs and shapes, allowing for a broad application of architectural creativity. It can be integrated easily into any space and pairs very well with many materials: glass, concrete, brick and wood!
