Steel and metal construction

In colloquial language, the term metal construction is used for almost any type of processing of metals such as steel and aluminium, also in combination with other materials.

Following this colloquial definition, this term essentially includes the following metal construction products:

Steel construction products such as buildings, halls, bridges, lock gates, platforms, walkways, stairways, conservatories and railings as well as metal construction products such as scaffolds, shelves, gates, doors, facades and equipment for games and sports.

In order to ensure the durability of the structures, great significance is also attached to corrosion protection here.

The metal used most frequently here is steel. The structural steels according to EN 10025 1, EN 10210 and EN 10214 as well as the stainless steels according to EN 10088 are basically utilised here.

The largest steel quantity in metal construction is accounted for by the construction products. Here, strict regulations are stipulated by the European and national legislation. Any infringement of these may entail extreme consequences for the executing firms.

These regulations include proof of training, process qualifications and manufacturer qualifications in the fields of the respective applications.
