Hot Rolled Steel Buildings
Larger format, greater loading ability
Clear Span Buildings design and install, hot rolled steel buildings. Rather than cold rolled steel buildings, hot rolled steel columns and framework offer a larger format to structurally to the height and width of a building.
This option means multiple storeys can be installed, with concrete floor and stairway systems. Hot rolled steel allows heavier special glazing and cladding designs that can be, safely, accommodated.
Hot rolling steel in the manufacturing process is generally carried out at a very high temperature, around 1000°C, using a method which prevents the steel from hardening whilst it is being shaped. Using this method gives the steel H section beams far greater ability to carry increased loading, which opens a whole range of larger-scale possibilities.
Some of the benefits of hot rolled steel buildings:
- Design and scale become much larger
- Minimum 50 + year framework design life
- Multiple floor levels
- Cost-effective pre-formed concrete floor inserts and stair systems
- Wide range of glazing designs
- Factory and warehousing extensions or stand-alone plans, offering significant growth capacity
- Architectural designs delivering truly creative solutions
Hot Rolled Steel Buildings are the perfect option for long-standing structures where the intention is to have a more complex layout.
With these structures, multiple floors or bespoke building forms that may be stressful on cold-rolled steel frames are possible.
Compared to cold-rolled, hot-rolled steel frames can be, greater, taller and able to handle a lot more load, for example, if a gantry crane is to be mounted or solar panels installed on the roof. Alongside these benefits, hot-rolled steel is more resilient to corrosive conditions, for use as farmland structures or other places where the humidity could be high and affect integrity.
More About Hot Rolled Steel
Hot rolled steel is not only used for building framework. Other uses are:
- Truck Frames
- Tubes or piping
- Railway applications
- Farm and Land Equipment
- Doors and Shelving
Hot Rolling has been known to have a wider tolerance for the amount of carbon included in the metal compared to other methods like cold-rolled steel. Also, generally, Hot Rolled Steel can be less costly over its cold-rolled counterpart.
