Secondary steel includes side rails and purlins, as well as a number of other components that do not fall into the category of primary columns, rafters or bracing. At Wrightfield, we provide a huge range of secondary steel solutions. To find out more, continue reading this article.

Structural steelwork is the use of steel to create the framework and load-bearing elements of a building or structure. This includes things such as beams, columns, trusses, and other members that make up the skeleton of the building.

One of the main benefits of using structural steelwork is its strength and durability. Steel is a very strong and sturdy material, making it ideal for use in buildings and structures that need to withstand heavy loads and support large spans. Additionally, steel is resistant to fire and termites, which can provide an added level of safety and security to a building.

Another benefit of using structural steelwork is its flexibility. Steel can be easily fabricated and erected on site, which allows for a wide range of design options. This flexibility allows for the creation of unique and complex structures that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with other materials.

Structural steelwork also allows for the prefabrication of components, which can speed up the construction process and reduce labor costs. Additionally, steel is a very recyclable material, making it an environmentally friendly option for construction.

However, structural steelwork also has some drawbacks. Steel is a relatively expensive material, and the cost of fabrication and erection can be high. Additionally, steel is susceptible to corrosion if not properly protected, which can lead to structural issues over time.
