The particular characteristics of structural steel offer optimal solutions that satisfy architectural, engineering, and economic aspects.
ArcelorMittal Europe’s trademark steels are HISTAR® and FRITENAR® - structural steel grades combining high strength, good toughness, and superior weldability, exceeding requirements and offering supplementary guarantees.
The solution for lightweight, long-spanning structural elements is to implement the castellated ACB® and Angelina® beams. With their circular and sinusoidal web openings, they elegantly combine function with flexibility.
CoSFB (Composite slim floor beams) integrates the advantages of composite design with traditional slim floor construction.
