Obviously everyone knows that the steel is the backbone of any nation and a prime material for industry development of any nation as well. In fact there are several usages and applications of steel in all industrial sectors. But the fact is due to some advantages of the steel it has become prime material in construction industry. In construction industry various type of steel product used for making the building durable, flexible and cost efficient. In fact, new modern construction methodology has been developed because of steel. Furthermore why steel is used in all kind of construction will be understand by the some points which are given below:
Steel is easily available in any location
The most important and main fact is that it can easily available in any location across the world. You don’t have to go far for finding the product when it is required. Material availability is the first priority because the time duration of the project depends upon it.
Steel is durable which increase the life of building and can stand with all kind of pressure.
Steel is a highly durable material which means it can withstand as well as tolerate of all kind external forces such as earth quakes, hurricane, cyclone, tornedos, and thunderstorm. The other fact is that it can turn into any shape and can be reuse. A building frame which made of using steel can last more than 30 years. That’s the reason that you can see sky scraper buildings such as Eiffel Tower, New York Times Building, The Gateway Arc, Shun Hing Square, China World Trade Centre, NASAR hall of fame and etc.
Steel is less expensive than the other construction material which means it easy to afford.
This is another important reason for which steel is used in construction industry. Having the lower cost than the other material will decrease the overall cost of the construction. On the other steel building has the lower maintenance cost which makes it very economically than the other construction material building. Hence, it is become prime material and viable option for the construction industry.
Steel has High strength to weight ratio
Steel is one of material which has high strength to weight ratio as well as tensile strength which makes it easier to work with, apart from this, occupied less area and allow you to use maximum space area in order to other material which are used for installing the beam and column, structural support of the building.
In conclusion these are the several benefits and advantages which makes the ideal material in the construction industry.
