Saving time and money and removing cost from our buildings.
- Experts put all the pieces together quickly by controlling the critical path, and allowing the remaining sub-trades to begin their work sooner to reduce the overall construction timeline. STEELRITE®'s building solutions can reduce the cost of foundations considerably and have less impact on the surrounding environment. The STEELRITE(R) long span deck option was designed to reduce the amount of concrete that would be needed to span a similar area. We require less concrete which saves time and money. The building stability packages are also less expensive when considering the reduction in mass that needs to be kept stable in an earthquake.
Support sustainable construction
- STEELRITE understands that everyone needs to do their part to help achieve a sustainable built environment. That is why we purchase steel exclusively from suppliers that produce steel using 90% recycled content. Further, we support sustainable construction education through our USGBC and AIA approved seminars on sustainable construction using steel floor joist systems. In fact, almost all of STEELRITE®'s products are environmentally-friendly and stable, which contributes to LEED Certification and classy buildings.
The Steelrite System allows architects and engineers to meet almost any design criteria, including high wind and seismic loads. Steelrite Systems can also be used as the sole structural member in load-bearing walls in buildings, needing no "red iron" (structural iron) - depending on spans.
Don't get burned using wood framing!
The Steelrite System uses Light Gauge Steel, a superior building material. It provides noncombustible support for fire-rated construction. Steel will not burn or add fuel to a burning fire. In many cases, using steel can reduce insurance premiums and may eliminate the need for expensive sprinkler systems and fire stopping materials.
Have you ever seen a termite munching on steel & concrete?
The Steelrite System is built completely with light gauge steel and cement and termites don't like either! This means the money you spend on your structure will never be eaten up by nasty creatures. This can mean lower insurance costs and higher resale value. Wouldn't any other solution just end up bugging your bottom line in the future?
What's that musty smell?
Because the STEELRITE System uses light gauge steel, there is less of a chance of the common musty smells and allergens due to mold and mildew. Steel does not rot, promote mold or mildew, and is impermeable to termites, vermin, and insects. This means longer-life and possibly higher resale value for your buildings.
