Title:

Want a Fireproof Building? Choose Pre-engineered Steel Structures

Description:

Building fire and safety is a major concern in designing structures and architects place a high premium on the fire safety system. Whether it is residential buildings, shopping malls or megalithic airports using steel in place of concrete and wood can provide a major advantage as far as fire safety goes. For this reason, more and more airport construction companies recommend that steel replace other materials for durability as well as for easy maintenance. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

INTRODUCTION
  • Building fire and safety is a major concern in
    designing structures
  • From an architects perspective, steel structure
    buildings provide more leeway for imparting
    better aesthetic appeal
  • However what steel structure buildings the
    darling of architects is its fireproofing
    properties

Some Famous Steel Structure Buildings
  • Sydney Harbour Bridge Sydney, Australia. It is
    reputedly the largest steel arch bridge
    beam-columns built by human effort
  • Forth Bridge Firth of Forth in Scotland. It is
    a cantilever railway bridge and among the oldest

Types of Steel Structures
  • Rigid frames these structures are welded
    together based on specific design
  • Trusses Trusses are a combination of members in
    triangular shapes
  • Beams Beams are designed to take vertical and
    gravity loads

Multi Storey Steel Frame Construction The
Fireproof Advantages
  • Steel does not change shape easily even during a
    fire-related disaster
  • Steel is isotropic has the same properties in
    all dimensional changes
  • The right type of steel does not shrink, warp or
    crack under fire
