Stainless Steel Tee Bars in buildings


The evolution of architecture and design has always gone hand in hand with the evolution of materials and production processes. The combined use in an innovative way both for materials and for existing techniques, in fact involves the difference also in the evolution of architecture and in its ability to respond to increasingly specific requests based on the needs of an increasingly varied clientele.

Consider, for example, the importance of the elements needed in the design of more complex structures of various sizes and how engineering has increased the potential of known materials through the experimentation of new strategic forms.

The importance of Stainless Steel Tee Bar

For example, think of the stainless steel T bar, very often employed in the construction of load-bearing structures thanks to the fact that it can withstand a higher weight. This occurs thanks to its upper part, called flange, resistant to compressive stresses.

Its vertical section, defined as core, also resists shear stress and bending. One of the uses of T bars is in the construction of false ceilings. Companies that are more attentive to the circular economy and respect for the environment tend to produce elements with recycled materials deriving from large industry.

Thus achieving not only the goal of savings, but also the possibility of customized modifications on each individual element.

The characteristics of the material

Stainless steel T bars are bar-shaped construction elements with a parallel inner surface that are characterized by high flexibility. The T bar can in fact be spliced, bolted welded or even hot manufactured, then it is finally hot rolled or extruded.

These bars, as mentioned above, as well as being used for false ceilings, are generally present on the market, in industry but also for the construction of machinery and equipment of various types in the field of construction and in a wide array of industries including food and beverage, paper, chemical, architecture, dairy, aerospace and automotive.

The stainless steel T bar is made of a chromium-nickel alloy which results in the ability to be able to resist intergranular corrosion, rust and high heat. This steel has an overall low carbon content deeming it safe for construction welding in as long as the operation does not exceed a service limit of 800 degrees Fahrenheit.

Differences between T bars and Y bars

When we talk about strength, two types of bars come into play: T bars and Y bars. Referred to as a reinforcing bar, T stands for tensile strength, Y stands for yield strength. The tensile strength of steel bars is the ability to withstand tensile stress without breaking and is the point where temporary to permanent deformations occur.

So tensile strength is the amount of tensile force that the bar can therefore withstand. As far as yield strength is concerned, reference is made to the ability not to permanently change its shape even if the bar were to be subjected to maximum stress. Once the yield point has been exceeded, the bar will not resume its original shape.
