In recent years, the application of stainless steel as a building material is becoming increasingly widespread. The use of a wide range of reasons has a wide range of reasons, including a better understanding of the material, trying to update some of the design, imagine the production of a durable and no maintenance of structural materials.


In the early days,Application of Stainless Steel in Construction Articles the use of stainless steel tube for construction was limited to certain occasions, where architects were looking for a new material with special effects in the absence of proper material in the past. In fact, many such occasions, stainless steel has been used for a long time and its effect has been a long period of continuous erosion of the role of stainless steel, so that manufacturers believe that stainless steel materials for outdoor applications even in high corrosive gases under the conditions of corrosion.

Because stainless steel is durable and almost no need to maintain the surface of these two characteristics, to make people more than ever before more attention to its application. Most of the price of building materials in a certain proportion of rapid rise, and there are many materials prices and far more than stainless steel. The cost of maintaining and maintaining the structure of the building inside and outside is even more soaring. Today's architects must seriously consider the whole situation of the building. If the building needs to be replaced or repaired for many years, then the architect's design is a failure.

In recent years, the walls of the swimming pool have been made of stainless steel. The main material used for a long time requires concrete to be repaired and painted annually, especially in the northern region. The use of carbon steel and coated construction of the swimming pool each year also need a large area of scrubbing and brushing, both of which have increased the swimming pool a considerable use of expenditure. When the pool is made of stainless steel (304, 2B finish) to do the side wall, scrub is very simple, just water and soap can be quickly washed. Now the swimming pool is often used stainless steel tank wall and mixed soil bottom, the bottom of the concrete is mainly for non-slip.

Some buildings of the wall with 304, 8 mirror polished stainless steel as a material. The interconnected stainless steel plates are polished and colored to polish the walls with consistent color wither and reflective properties. In order to prevent grease, a large area of stainless steel plate exposed part (velvet feet) installed in the galvanized sheet and the compression plate composed of thick sandwich. Polished stainless steel plate with epoxy resin as binder and galvanized steel plate connected fixed.

Made of dry stainless steel can be very soft performance, so that it may be used as a roof cover material. It is because this material is easy to shape, durable and beautiful, so many architects choose stainless steel not only as a protective layer, but as an integral part of the overall design.

Some buildings (indoor skating rinks) are made of stainless steel in the construction of the roof of the Yongping overlapping layer, not only to make the building from the design point of view nice, but also because of the reflective surface of stainless steel, so that the indoor ice season to extend the rabbit Bear unreasonable investment.

For some special structures, often due to the application of stainless steel to make many problems resolved. For example, there is a garage, the design requirements of the parking garage on the parked vehicles not only have a protective effect and the exhaust gas has a good ventilation; but also to a certain degree of sunlight into the garage, the selection is durable and no maintenance. To meet the above requirements, the designer selected 201 stainless steel grating, the grid will be fixed on the vertical column, so that the overlap caused by overlapping inside and outside the layout. To enhance the effect of building facilities, the staggered outer grille with floating surface finish, the outer row of column grid using ordinary 2B finish, all inside the grid are 2D light selling. This change in the pattern of the garage has a vivid appearance.

For a building roof structure, its life and appearance should be the same attention. At the airport's restaurant, in order to make the roof beautiful, exhaust fans are covered with stainless steel plate. In the choice of cover material, but also stressed the non-reflective material. The selected materials are 304 stainless steel, rough polishing, low reflectivity, 6 finish. For the selection of light to pay special attention to the special due to the issue of glare, to prevent the pilot to reach the destination landing when the line of sight.

Office buildings inside and outside the building to the structure are used in stainless steel. Its architectural measures use stainless steel as a curtain wall. The columns at the entrance of the building are covered with stainless steel plates, and all the windows of the building are cleaned with stainless steel.

The ceilings above the office building lounge are made of stainless steel plates with relief. Use the male and female mold to punch the embossed part on the stainless steel sheet.

Stainless steel is not only long life, but also the production of captive convex to the structure of a good material, which can enhance the shape of the building beauty, it is often the main sign of the square.

Another example of stainless steel as a main material for outdoor end architecture is the famous arch that stands on the river.

Stainless steel material can be arbitrarily selected. It has a variety of different strength-to-weight ratios to suit all types of building structural requirements. In addition, different grades of surface finish also provide a range of options for a variety of different construction facilities to meet the actual needs. The architect's bold idea will make the application of stainless steel in the construction industry increasingly widespread.
