Steel Frame Sustainability: Enhancing Durability for Long-Term Performance


Lgaz Jodeh

Steel frames have long been recognized as a reliable and robust structural system in the construction industry. With their exceptional strength-toweight ratio and resistance to various environmental conditions, steel frames have gained popularity in a wide range of applications, from high-rise buildings to industrial structures. However, ensuring the long-term performance of steel frames requires a strategic approach that emphasizes durability and maintenance. This article explores key strategies for enhancing the durability of steel frames and maximizing their longevity. Steel frame sustainability refers to the ability of steel structures to meet present-day needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It involves the responsible use of steel as a construction material, considering its environmental impact, energy efficiency and long-term performance. Sustainable steel frame design and construction practices aim to minimize resource depletion, reduce carbon emissions and optimize the life cycle of structures.
