Scale back weight, preserve safety degree
Utilizing the proper supplies for cover gear in harmful environments is usually a matter of life or loss of life.
This factsheet provides particulars of the advantages of upgrading from Ramor® 500 to 600, together with a greater than 20 per cent discount in weight. These steels have been developed with the most recent menace profiles in thoughts, and could be tailor-made to any requirement.
SSAB has greater than 50 years of expertise main specialist metal R&D and manufacturing, and has created Ramor® with a single goal: to guard human life.

The wide selection of SSAB steels for building purposes is aligned with SSAB imaginative and prescient, calling for ‘Lighter But Stronger’ buildings. Adopting SSAB steels in buildings can drastically scale back materials consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, thereby supporting sustainability and conservation of ecosystems.
SSAB is taking the lead by creating steels supposed for quite a lot of constructing types and usages. The award-winning SSAB steels is an extra mark of their distinctive high quality. SSAB building steels can mix a number of of the next traits – ballistic safety/corrosion resistance/environmentally pleasant coating and lots of different elements.
Right here we checklist just a few of the extra notable constructing and building purposes over the previous couple of years the place SSAB steels had been used:
Embassy of Sweden, USA
The Embassy of Sweden is situated on the second flooring of a novel constructing generally known as the Home of Sweden in Washington DC. Its amenities embody workplaces, an exhibition venue, a enterprise centre and company workplaces. It was designed by Swedish architect Gert Wingård and received a number of native and worldwide awards. King Carl Gustaf XVI of Sweden inaugurated the constructing in 2006.
With its trendy seems to be, the Home of Sweden is meant to mirror Swedish simplicity, transparency and light-weight ambiance. Its surroundings provides it a magical impression of calmly floating alongside Washington’s Potomac River, surrounded by inexperienced bushes in its landscaped gardens.

STIGA Sports activities Enviornment, Sweden
This contemporary, environmentally sustainable complicated was opened in 2017, as a centre for sports activities, occasions and live shows. It has been awarded the Swedish Inexperienced Constructing Council’s Gold Certificates for its use of low environmental affect building supplies, and that it has low power consumption when in use.
Three grades of SSAB metal had been used to assemble the roof trusses for the principle area, utilizing cold-formed rectangular and sq. hole tubes. Domex® Tube Double Grade was utilized in two strengths, S355J2H and S420MH, whereas the ultimate was constituted of SSAB Strenx® Tube S700MC.
The profile and tensile power of SSAB’s metal allowed very long-span roof trusses to offer the big open plan areas which can be obligatory for unrestricted viewing by spectators.
SSAB GreenCoat® metal for constructing envelopes and rainwater programs
SSAB actively tracks and anticipates future adjustments in environmental, security and laws. Because the title implies, GreenCoat® metal from SSAB options a big number of bio-based colors and anti-corrosion coatings. GreenCoat® metal complies with varied sustainable guidelines and applications as LEED (Management in Power and Environmental Design), BREEAM (Constructing Analysis Institution’s Environmental Evaluation Technique), REACH (Registration, Analysis, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances) and others.
That makes it very engaging for constructing roofs, facades, normal cladding, and exterior pipes because it provides the constructing extra credit within the score system and analysis by standardisation institutes and native authorities. GreenCoat® additionally achieves the very best and hardest security ranges in the way in which it’s utilized in meals business purposes akin to freezers and storage areas.
Prize-winning initiatives, utilizing GreenCoat® proceed to pop up, akin to:
‘Fisksätra Folkets Hus’ (a standard tent). This construction was designed by Thomas Sandell of Sandellsandberg Arkitekter and constructed utilizing GreenCoat® Professional BT color coated metal options in a heat Silver Fir Inexperienced shade, produced utilizing Swedish rapeseed oil as an alternative of fossil-based oils to make the coating. This patented coating know-how is exclusive out there.
This design and building received the celebrated Swedish Design Award, ‘Design-S 2020’, within the ‘Structure’ class. It includes a placing 20-metre skylight, triangular home windows and a minimalist, but inviting inside.
Ruukki Development first to provide fossil-free metal constructing merchandise
A subsidiary of SSAB Group, Ruukki is dedicated to providing its prospects a variety of fossil-free metal constructing merchandise. These will likely be designed and manufactured utilizing SSAB’s HYBRIT know-how, and it forecasts that they are going to be bringing closing merchandise to market in 2026. Till then, along with persevering with giant investments in analysis and growth within the discipline, Ruukki will associate with chosen prospects for pilot initiatives to check quite a lot of merchandise and purposes.
The worldwide drive for sustainable practices and merchandise, Ruukki’s plans are to have probably the most sustainable providing and operations, to assist themselves and their prospects obtain a giant discount of their carbon emissions. It initiatives that fossil-free metal will assist scale back the carbon footprint for these merchandise by round 85%. An extra 30% discount could also be achieved by intensive analysis into energy-efficient envelope options. In Ruukki’s personal operations, it goals to additional scale back carbon emissions by 25% by 2026.
And with its persevering with analysis and growth in HYBRIT know-how, SSAB goals to deliver fossil-free metal to the worldwide market in 2026. (HYBRIT is a three way partnership initiative of SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall.)
SSAB and Peab collaborate on fossil-free, high-quality metal
One other giant building firm from Sweden, Peab has chosen SSAB’s fossil-free metal, produced utilizing the HYBRIT course of, of their building initiatives from 2026 onward.
The businesses will collectively analyse future prospects for a way fossil-free metal might help the development business purpose for extra sustainable constructing initiatives sooner or later, in Sweden and all over the world.
“We’re happy to welcome Peab as a associate for our fossil-free metal merchandise,” mentioned Martin Lindqvist, President and CEO of SSAB. “By fossil-free metal collaboration, we contribute to strengthening our prospects’ competitiveness and to lowering their carbon footprint. Collectively, we additionally strengthen the place for fossil-free metal within the building business, whereas additionally serving to to cut back international carbon dioxide emissions.”
Peab has formidable local weather and environmental targets, “And this is a crucial step for us to succeed in local weather neutrality by 2045. Entry to fossil-free metal will enhance our alternatives. Our collaboration on fossil-free metal can be a pure growth of the great relation Peab and SSAB have already got by way of local weather effectivity,” mentioned Jesper Göransson, President and CEO of Peab.
