The team of metalworkers at BridgeFab specialised in steel, stainless steel and aluminium.  

Metal is an incredibly versatile material with many different uses. While the team at BridgeFab predominantly works on structural steel and boutique steel fabrication, we can also help with the smaller details of steelwork for both residential and commercial projects. If you need metalwork for a project, such as handrails or metal grates, we can help.

Read on to find out more about the materials that we use, and how we can assist in turning your plans into reality…

What is metalwork? 

Metalwork refers to the smaller area of steelwork. The process of metalworking involves the act of forming and shaping metals to create useful objects, as well as structures, tools and equipment parts. Many metalworking projects involve forming, cutting and joining metal, and metalworkers may employ a range of techniques, depending on the project at hand. These techniques may include cutting and welding, as well as casting and moulding of various metal types. The material that is used in metalworking will depend on the type of project that is being worked on and may include steel, stainless steel and aluminium. 

What metals do we use?

When working on metalwork details, such as handrails, park benches, metal grates and bag racks, our team of sheet-metal workers use a range of materials. These include steel, stainless steel and aluminium. Each of the materials has its own set of benefits and possible applications:

Steel is used widely in the construction industry and is a popular choice for applications that require strength. There are various types of steel available, ranging from mild to medium and high carbon content. The type that you choose for your metalwork will depend on how resistant you need the material to be, as well as the specific project details that you have in mind.  

Stainless steel
Stainless steel is used widely in metalworking. It is a popular material because of the fact that is resistant to both corrosion and stains. It is also extremely strong and reliable. Made up of a number of different metals, stainless steel is an alloy that can be made according to different grades, depending on the properties that are required for a specific project. It is often used for details like handrails and balustrades, as well as various structural applications, roofing and architectural cladding.

Aluminium is an extremely versatile material and can be used on a range of projects. Thanks to its excellent malleability, the material can be moulded into many shapes. Aluminium is one of the most used metals after steel when it comes to buildings, and is often used for details like window frames, roofing, and doors. Some of the features which make aluminium so popular include its resistance to corrosion and harsh weather conditions, as well as its high conductivity. 

How can we help?

At BridgeFab, our team of sheet-metal workers specialise in steel, stainless steel and aluminium. We can assist with metalwork such as handrails, park bench seats, metal grates and bag racks for schools. Although our focus is structural steel and boutique steel fabrication, we also have the skills and expertise to carry out metalwork details for projects. We often work with city councils to assist with their metalwork needs and have all the necessary equipment for the finer details that are often required on a project.
