New special steel solutions for construction

The special innovative solutions offered by the steel producer Ugitech, according to the manufacturer, meet all requirements involving elegance, energy economy, cost-efficiency, and durability – both in building construction and civil engineering works. Used as concrete reinforcing elements, the producer’s Ugigrip deformed steel bars enable the design of lighter structures. Concrete structures, moreover, can be designed with greater slenderness and aesthetic appeal, because the diameters of the steel bars can be minimized thanks to superior ­Ugigrip mechanical properties. The special steel Ugi...
