TOP 11 Reasons to Use Yili Steel Structure

- Jul 05, 2019 -

1. Strength, beauty, design freedom
Yili steel structure offers architects more design freedom in color and shape. It provides different strength, durability, beauty, precision, and malleability.these factors give architects broader parameters to explore ideas and develop fresh solutions. Yili steel structure has a long-spanning ability, and it gives rise to large open spaces. Its creating segmented curves or free-form combinations for facades, arches or domes set it apart. Factory-finished to the most exacting specifications under highly controlled conditions, steel's final outcome is more predictable and repeatable, eliminating the risk of on-site variability.

2. Fast, efficient, resourceful
Installation of Yili steel structures is not affected by seasonal variations. Components are pre-manufactured off-site with minimal on-site labor. The construction time of the entire framework is 20% to 40% of the traditional construction time. Of course, depending on the size of the project, the time may be shorter. Yili Structural steel's lighter weight relative to other framing materials such as concrete enables a smaller, simpler foundation. Fast and efficient steel structure construction is well reflected in three aspects: saving time cost, efficient resource utilization and improving economic benefits.

3. Adaptable and accessible
With the rapid development of the economy, there is an increasing demand for construction. Customers may expand a garage for their newly purchased car. Under the new economy, the development of fully automatic aquaculture has also led to the construction of steel structure plants. How to quickly acquire steel structures is the most worrying issue for farmers.yili Steel framing and floor systems also allow easy access and alterations to existing electrical wiring, computer networking cables and communication systems.

4. Less columns, more open space
Steel sections provide an elegant, cost-effective method of spanning long distances. Extended steel spans can create a large, open plan, column-free internal spaces, with many clients now demanding column grid spacing over 15 meters. In single storey buildings, rolled beams provide clear spans of over 50 meters. Trussed or lattice construction can extend this to 150 meters. Minimizing the number of columns makes it easier to subdivide and customize spaces. Steel-built buildings are often more adaptable, with greater potential for alterations to be made over time, extending the lifetime of the structure.

5. Endlessly recyclable
When a steel-framed building is demolished, its components can be reused or circulated into the steel industry's closed-loop recycling system for melt down and repurposing. Steel can be recycled endlessly without loss of properties. Nothing is wasted. Steel saves on the use of natural raw resources since around 30% of today's new steel is already being made from recycled steel.

6. Added fire resistance
Extensive testing of structural steelwork and complete steel structures has provided the industry with a thorough understanding of how steel buildings respond to fire. Advanced design and analysis techniques allow precise specification of fire protection requirements of steel-framed buildings, often resulting in significant reductions in the amount of fire protection required.

7. Earthquake resistance
Earthquakes are unpredictable in terms of magnitude, frequency, duration, and location. Steel is the material of choice for design because it is inherently ductile and flexible. It flexes under extreme loads rather than crushing or crumbling. Many of the beam-to-column connections in a steel building are designed principally to support gravity loads. Yet they also have a considerable capacity to resist lateral loads caused by wind and earthquakes.

8. Aesthetics, meet function
Steel's slender framing creates buildings with a sense of openness. Its flexibility and malleability inspire architects to pursue and achieve their aims in terms of exploring distinctive shapes and textures. These aesthetic qualities are complemented by steel's functional characteristics that include its exceptional spanning ability, dimensional stability over time, its acoustic noise dampening abilities, endless recyclability and the speed and precision in which it is manufactured and assembled onsite with minimal on-site labor.

9. More usable space, less material
Steel's ability to maximize space and internal width with the thinnest shell possible means thinner, smaller structural elements are achievable. Steel beam depths are around half that of timber beams, offering greater usable space, fewer materials and lower costs compared with other materials. Wall thicknesses can be thinner because of steel's strength and excellent spanning capacity mean there's no need to build solid, space-consuming brick walls. This can be particularly relevant for heavily constrained sites, where steel's space-saving properties can be the key to overcoming spatial challenges.

10. Lighter and less impacting on the environment
Steel structures can be significantly lighter than concrete equivalents and require less extensive foundations, reducing the environmental impact of the build. Less and lighter materials mean they are easier to move around, reducing transportation and fuel use. Steel pile foundations, if required, can be extracted and recycled or reused at the end of a building's life, leaving no waste material on site. Steel is also energy efficient, as heat radiates quickly from steel roofing, creating a cooler home environment in hot climate areas.

11. Wind and Hurricane Resistant
Steel's strength enables houses to withstand strong wind. With the number of natural disasters on the increase, this is a crucial advantage. Extensive testing, calculation, and standards for steel structures have provided the industry with a thorough understanding of how steel buildings responding to how steel buildings respond to the strongest wind loads, for high and mid-rise buildings, as well as for the low-rise and affordable residential buildings.
