RE: Weather Structural Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

There’s a lot of information on weathering steel in Modern Steel Construction magazine. Keith Grubb wrote an informative SteelWise article in the February issue (visit and click on archives; the article is titled: “Out in the open”).


Also, if you’re trying to obtain A588 structural shapes, Metals USA has a large inventory.

There's always a solution in steel.

I think you are looking at ASTM A588 structural steel shapes which has a minimum yield strength of 50 ksi and a minimum tensile strength of 70 ksi.  I believe it is available but I would first check with your local fabricator and/or mill.

Does any one have more information weather structural steel?  What is the specification tensile strength or grade?  Are they availabe to purchase?

No, he's talking about ASTM A 709 plus ASTM A 325 Type III bolts.
