S355 structural steel is a high-strength low-alloy European standard structural steel covering four of the six “Parts” within the EN 10025 – 2004 standard. With minimum yield of 50,000 KSI, it meets requirements in chemistry and physical properties similar to ASTM A572. Careful attention should always be placed on the specific variation of S355 required if considering substitute material.
S355 is used in almost every facet of structural fabrication. Typical applications include: Structural steel works, bridge components, components for offshore structures, power plants, mining and earth-moving equipment, Load-handling equipment, wind tower components.
Structural steels are used in many ways and their application can be diverse. They are particularly useful because they offer the unique combination of good welding properties with guaranteed strengths. Structural Steel is an extremely adaptable product and helps maximize strength or structure while minimizing its weight.
The construction industry is the biggest consumer of Structural Steel, where it is used for all manner of purposes and employed at diverse scales. Whether a small box lintel is used to carry the load of a structural wall in a residential property or a vast I-beam is bolted in place to hold the road surface on a bridge, structural steel can be specified, designed and fabricated for the job.
