Hot Rolled Steel Buildings
OVER A DECADE OF EXPERIENCE
Steel is arguably the most commonly used material for industrial and commercial construction, and there are two forms of steel frames to choose between – hot rolled or cold rolled.
Steel is made using two methods – cold rolling and hot rolling steel. The criteria for determining whether steel is Hot Rolled or Cold Rolled are the temperature at which it is rolled at.
Steel hot rolling takes place at a temperature of about 1,000 degrees Centigrade, using a method that stops the steel from toughening while it is being rolled. Hot Rolled steel’s finished resistance will change as it starts to cool to room temperature.
Hot steel rolling tends to be used for more significant, clearer spans or higher buildings, primarily where a building is used to hold bulk material or where the frame is needed to carry extra loads, like overhead cranes etc. Since hot rolling steel beams and frames tend to be thicker, they are better suited to this purpose.
Hot Rolled Steel Frames tend to be better suited to more custom-made building styles, where a building has to be tapered or something other than square or rectangular. Additionally, Hot Rolled Steel Frames are better suited to potentially corrosive conditions like Cattle Sheds or maybe to house a Heated Pool.
Hot Rolled Steel buildings can be painted to a colour of your choosing, or they can be post-galvanized to make the finish even more durable.
