Structural Steel for Custom Metal Fabrication Projects
Structural steel is everywhere, and much of the civilized world as we know it would simply collapse without it, and yet it’s hardly visible. From agriculture to automotive, from power plants to petroleum plants, from telecommunications towers to water towers, every aspect of modern life is supported by hundreds of thousands of frameworks made by metal fabricators, like us. Most people never think about it or notice it, even when entirely surrounded by it.
Commercial Structural Steel vs. Industrial Structural Steel
Structural steel is also one of the most misunderstood categories of construction and metal fabrication, primarily because there is a vast range of types, but almost no well-defined categories. Most people think of massive I-beams when they hear the terms “structural steel” or “structural metal,” like the ones so often seen in images of towering skyscrapers being erected, or of multilane bridges spanning rivers or bodies of water. These types of structural components are commonly called “commercial” structural steel.
But really, if the entire field of structural steel were depicted as a pyramid, such monstrously large and heavy elements would be at the narrow top of the pyramid. The broad bottom of the pyramid would contain an almost uncountable number of “little brother” counterparts that had been assembled in smaller quantities and usually less complex configurations. But these custom and short-run structural components are no less important to life, commerce, and industry. In loose terms, these applications are referred to as “industrial” structural steel.
Structural Support Steel
At Southern Metal Fabricators, we have the experience and the equipment to work at almost any level of structural metal fabrication, but our focus and specialty is on the “intermediate” levels. We design and fabricate support structures for specific applications that usually include other components we’ve manufactured, such as stairs, bins, hoppers, chutes, silos, and stacks.
An example is the work we did for Lusail Twin Towers. You can check out our work here.
Al Rayyan Stadium Football Stadium needed Steel Frame for Partition Walls which we helped them build. Our work can also be seen in the case of Airport Road Tower where Super Engineering Services W.L.L. helped with the supply and fabrication of Perimetrical Cladding Frames.
Structural Metal Capabilities
At Super Engineering Services W.L.L, we’ve built our facility to take on almost any metal fabrication challenge, including the capacity to create structural metal components exactly to specifications. Our 50,000-square-foot high-bay production building has a 2-ton, 3-ton, and 10-ton overhead crane. Outside, there’s five acres of lay-down yard, and a 30-ton mobile gantry.
Our beam line of configurable chain-driven roller beds feeds two saws that can go through anything we throw at them, then carries the cut pieces to punching and welding stations if needed, and on to offloading for finishing and test assemblies.
Our finishing booths are ideally equipped for prepping and painting structural metal of nearly any shape and size.
Although we only do limited amounts of structural carbon steel, we do handle many varieties of structural metal for specialty applications, including stainless steel and aluminum.
