WHY USE STEEL IN BELIZE?

Structures have been built with concrete and wood for hundreds of years however a dwindling supply of old growth tree and environment concern has cause quantity to diminish. Today it is clear that there is a need for a new building material and steel has proven to be it.


  • Highest strength to weight ratio of any building material
  • Non-combustible- doesn't burn & will not contribute fuel to the spread of fire
  • Inorganic-will not rot, warp, split, crack or creep.
  • Dimensionally stable- does not expand or contract with moisture content.
  • Consistent material quality- produced in strict accordance with standards
  • High strength results in safer structure less maintenance & slower ageing of structure.
  • Fire safety
  • Not vulnerable to termites
  • No additional preservative chemicals are required over & above the galvanizing process.
  • Less probability of damage in high winds- stronger connection riveted & screwed versus nailed.
  • Less Probability of damaged in an earthquake lighter structure with stronger connection results in less seismic force.
