As all other building materials, steel should also be protected against the corrosion
effect that arises from the environment.
It is seen that corrosion effect is very small at internal spaces. There are various
protective systems at external environments.
When elements of conveyor systems are removed, they can be reused with a small
degree of loss or without loss, if their use is previously planned.
It is cost effective, as time necessary for construction is short. The building can be
operated as soon as it is completed.
The building has more area of use since column and beam cross sections in steel
buildings are smaller than other conveyor systems. (While thin furnishings provide the
ability to construct more floors, there are technical advantages in cabling and similar
systems for flexible interior volumes, fixture renewal.
Steel is a highly safe constructional material, as it is homogeneous and isotropic
and it can constantly be kept under control. Therefore, security coefficients used in
calculations are smaller than security coefficients of other construction materials.
All parts of the conveyor system are manufactured in a factory environment according
to standards and regulations and have documented industrial quality assurance.
All constructional steel elements can be seen and controlled during construction,
at the end of the construction and during utility of the construction. This means
transparency in production and all stages of construction.
When compared with other construction materials, elasticity module is very high.
As it is a ductile material, it has a great shape changing capacity and it is advantageous
to be used in the case of unexpected extraordinary load, in the case of sinking on
unstable soil and in earthquake zones.
Steel construction design is architecturally aesthetic and creative.
It has various advantages in restoration.
As tensile strength is equal to compressive strength, steel has a superior property for
specially designed buildings in terms of architecture.
No residual materials are left behind when steel construction is removed.
As steel is manufactured at factories, it has the advantages of constructing at very small
sites with the least adverse effect to the environment and no stock is needed. Steel
construction does not contaminate the nature and the environment at any stage and it
is 100% recyclable.
When we say total life cycle cost, we mean significantly important criteria targeted for
recycle and reuse of materials, changeable and enlargeable spaces, lightness, thin cross
sections, removable and reconstructive buildings without being broken.
