Non-Combustible

Steel is a non-combustable material that will not add fuel to the spread of fire. "Unlike a wood structure, steel-framed structure can help safeguard your assets against fire accidents." -BuildSteel.org

"It's a common fact that steel is non-combustible.

  • The melting point of steel is approximately 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit

  • Building fire temperatures average 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and rarely exceed 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit

  • Thus, the steel structures will not melt.

While the stiffness and yield strength of steel are reduced at ultra-high temperatures, modern building codes and fire protection methods take these reductions into consideration." -BuildSteel.org
