Structures and Structural Steel Manufacturing in Dubai, UAE

PROFILE OF Structures and Structural Steel Manufacturing

Steel is an alloy of iron, carbon and other elements, which is obtained in a liquid form. Most steels contain no phosphorus, sulfur and silicon and they have between 0.1 and 1.5 % carbon. Steel is produced since ancient times. The best evidence is a piece of this alloy, over 4,000 years old, discovered in an archaeological site in Anatolia. But steel is also a very good construction material. This is a well known fact by steel fabricators which operate in big industrial cities such as Dubai.

A lot of tall buildings from developed cities are made mostly of steel and this is why steel fabricators consider this industry as being profitable. It is important to know that another advantage is that steel products can be recycled repeatedly without losing their hardness.

Steel fabricators are aware that this kind of material is great for those who want to make a good investment. For example, if it is made a comparison, while building a wooden house means using the wood for 40 trees, building a house of metal (2,000 square meters), it only takes the steel from four vehicles. Also, cutting trees is a bad thing for nature because it leads to landslides and lack of oxygen.

It can be noticed that steel roofs represent a great deal nowadays and they are 100% recyclable. Steel roofs are also fire resistant and they can be replaced only once every 50 years. The protection against fire is an aspect which should be taken into consideration due to the fact that, during time, many houses were completely destroyed by violent fire.

Another curiosity about steel is that in 1912 an English metallurgist called Harry Brearley invented stainless steel while he was seeking for an alloy to protect guns. The biggest problem was that guns used to be covered in rust because of the materials from which they were made. So, it was a great opportunity to search for something else. Some people say that that steel fabricators have such a successful business, due to Harry Brearley.

The steel fabricators have a good business relationship with car producers. The last decade was a real roller-coaster for the automotive market, especially for countries like United Arab Emirates. And many of the cars have in their composition a great quantity of steel materials. It is also important to know, that, if you look back in time, in 1914, the great car producer, called Dodge, launched the first car in the world made entirely of steel.
