Manufacturing of Steel Structures
From the project to the ready solution
Steel has been used for bearing structures for over 130 years. The first skyscraper with steel bearing structures was the Home Insurance Building in Chicago, which was opened in 1885. Steel bearing structures are mostly used for skyscrapers, industrial buildings and warehouses, but also residential buildings
The advantages of steel structures over other materials:
- Quick assembly process
- Steel is flexible, which makes it more resistant to dynamic forces such as earthquakes and wind
- Steel can be formed in a variety of different shapes
- There are many different coating and finishing options
- There are several assembly or connection methods, such as welding, bolting and riveting
There are also some disadvantages to using steel: in extremely high temperatures they lose their strength and in moist conditions steel structures can corrode. That is why there are different surface coating processes like covering the structures with intumescent paint or galvanizing them. Tavepro’s steel structures are always coated according to the customer’s specification and the current standards in order to avoid the above-mentioned problems and to offer sustainable solutions to our customers.
We have a certified International Welding Engineer in our ranks and our steel constructions are CE-marked according to the EN 1090-1:2009 + A1:2011 standard. We are certified to produce steel structures which belong to EXC 1 (agricultural buildings) and EXC 2 (residential and commercial structures) execution classes. Additionally, our quality management system for welding is certified according to the EN-ISO 3834-3:2005 standard.
