Thanks to the excellent corrosion resistance which ensures a long service life for structures over several decades, the UGIGRIP® range provides a guarantee of:
- Higher mechanical properties than conventional steel, which allows the use of smaller cross sections or a reduction in reinforcement.
- Yield strength and elongation properties which fulfill the requirements for earthquake-resistant construction.
- Mechanical properties at high temperature – tensile and creep – exceeding those of conventional steels, giving improved fire resistance.
- A very low thermal conductivity which allows thermal bridges treatment.
There is also a special range of non-magnetic stainless steels dedicated to special building structures : hospitals, banks, airports, meteorological stations, etc.
