Steel profiles – basic information

Due to their multifunctionality, steel profiles are successfully used in various industrial fields. Thanks to their very high strength and simultaneous plasticity, they have become one of the most popular building materials. Depending on the cross-section of the section, there are several types with different applications. These are:

  • C-sections – the name comes from the cross-section that resembles the letter C. It usually takes the form of short elements that may resemble metal strips;
  • T-bars – have a T-shaped cross-section. This is a popular profile in construction, it is also used in the production of agricultural machinery;
  • I-beams – the cross-section resembles two interconnected letters T, they are used as a load-bearing element of the structure;
  • I-beams – the cross-section resembles two interconnected letters T, they are used as a load-bearing element of the structure;

Steel profiles – types

Our company is undoubtedly one of the largest wholesalers of steel products, which includes steel profiles. Our offer includes several types of steel profiles that have different features and, therefore, various applications. The offer includes:

  • rectangular steel profiles;
  • square steel profiles;
  • cold-bent steel profiles.

Steel profiles – dimensions

The steel profiles available in our store are made of the highest quality western steel. The sheet metal from which they are made has a thickness of 0.5 mm to 0.8 mm. Their cross-section can range from 15×15 mm to 160×160 mm. Steel profiles are available in 6 and 12 m bars.

Bent and rolled steel profiles

Profile stalowe mogą różnić się przekrojem poprzecznym, ale również i sposobem formowania. Hot-rolled steel profiles are much more durable than bent profiles. Thanks to the hot rolling process, they remain even over their entire surface and have the same thickness. Rolled steel profiles will work much better for large structures that must withstand very heavy loads than bent steel profiles.

Steel profiles – characteristic features

As already mentioned, steel profiles are an element without which it would be really difficult to imagine finishing your interior. For the structure to be durable and serve us for years, it is important not only to properly install the sections, but above all the material from which they are made. By using steel profiles of poor quality, we expose the structure to damage, which in turn requires repairs and significantly higher costs.

Currently, there are profiles available on the market that combine very long durability with lightness. These are highly aesthetic elements, which is why they work so well as finishing elements. In addition, a great advantage of steel profiles is their outstanding acoustic properties. Thanks to them, they are able to effectively isolate unpleasant sounds or noise coming from outside. High-quality steel profiles are characterized by very good thermal insulation and high resistance to various types of mechanical damage, impacts and the harmful effects of external factors.

When choosing steel profiles, it is worth purchasing sections from one manufacturer. In this way, not only can we be sure that each of the purchased elements is of the same high quality, but we also make their assembly much easier. So, the features of steel profiles that are worth considering when purchasing are:

  • product quality;
  • shape (wide selection allows easy adjustment to needs);
  • high fire-resistant parameters;
  • the highest possible product quality;
  • price;
  • assembly method.

What to use steel profiles for?

Currently, the main use of steel profiles is the frame, which is an essential element of dry construction. They are then used to connect and strengthen individual elements:

  • frames of suspended ceilings;
  • skeletons of partition walls.

In addition, they can be used as a framework for heavy ceilings, as well as for strengthening windows and doors. An interesting solution may be closed steel profiles with holes. Due to the fact that they are able to provide very good ventilation, they are used when carrying out air conditioning or electrical work.\

Steel profiles are undoubtedly one of those construction and finishing elements that truly give us unlimited application possibilities. With a bit of creativity, we can achieve amazing results with them.
