Innovative Systems

Innovative Systems Innovate with Structural Steel Structural steel has a rich history of innovation. The continual development of higher-strength materials and new shapes has long characterized structural steel, and new material standards, such as ASTM A1085 for hollow structural sections (HSS) are regularly developed. At the same time, new products and innovative systems using structural steel have been produced to help designers efficiently address project requirements. These solutions, which address areas like long-span deck, fire protection, connection optimization, coating systems and progressive collapse, have resulted in a growing demand for structural steel to build student housing, healthcare, multifamily residential, office and parking projects.
