Steel is the basis of modern civilisations. It is used for just about every structural purpose, from houses to machines, tools to roofing. In the construction role, steel is the basis of design for skyscrapers and modern housing.
If you’re talking about consumer and industrial products, aluminium can be used for anything and everything. Aluminium is one of the most versatile of all the metals, used in everything from housing to aircrafts to cars and a vast range of different electrical products.
Aluminium isn’t just used for almost any product; it can be used for almost any design criteria, too. Aluminium is a truly useful design material that offers a wide range of values for all types of product design.
Sheet metal that is exposed to water needs to be as resistant as possible to corrosion. Whether the metal sheeting is used for roofing, machinery, or any other purpose, it’s critically important that it’s able to withstand wet conditions.
RHS (rectangular hollow steel) tubing is used for a wide variety of construction and fabrication purposes. This tubing is extremely popular for the construction of furniture, frames, and all sorts of load bearing uses.
RHS is preferred in situations where its flat sides allow it to fit against surface facings and is more appropriate than round tubing in many design environments. RHS tubes are also easier to work with during the fabrication process because straight edges can be fitted to the flat side more readily.
RHS can be used for so many different types of metal fabrication. With the huge range of sizes and thicknesses available, it can be used in countless different ways. No wonder it’s the ideal choice for both light and heavy jobs.
