Steel is an incredibly versatile material for building and construction, as suitable in a modern home as it is in an industrial factory or manufacturing facility. The latter in particular require the strength and versatility of steel for a wide range of structural elements, such as steel walkways or platforms.
A steel walkway or steel platform is an ubiquitous structural element in commercial and industrial spaces. Whether it’s part of a mezzanine, staircase, passage, or catwalk, steel is a highly durable, functional option and will last a lifetime. If you’re in need of a top steel fabricator for a steel walkway or platform, give us a call today.
Steel Walkway and Platform Sections
Grating – Steel grating is the central element of a steel platform. Steel grating is designed to withstand high impact, high load environments and is suitable for just about any commercial or industrial application, from shipbuilding to warehouses to staircases.
Staircases – Staircases are another necessary element of a steel walkways in industrial or commercial spaces. Custom steel staircases can be built to meet any spacial requirements.
Handrails – Sturdy, durable handrails are a vital safety element of any steel walkway or platform.
Balustrades – A baluster is one of the central components of a staircase, walkway and passage way – the vertical bars that connect the handrail and the tread. Singularly each bar is known as a baluster, but collectively the component is called a balustrade.
Ladders – A steel ladder may be required in industrial and commercial spaces to allow access to walkways and passages at different heights where a staircase is unfeasible.
Custom Steel Sections – For applications where standard steel sections are unsuitable, custom steel walkways and passageways can be fabricated to suit any needs.
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 walkway 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 is therefore 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.
