Environmental Steel Facts

Environmental Steel Facts, A Great Material To Work With

It is common knowledge that as an Elephant Structures brand, we deal in steel. The range of products we provide our customers are all built with it due to its durability, affordability, and ease of customization & construction. However, something that doesn’t get talked about often is how steel is actually pretty awesome to use if you’re trying to be environmentally friendly. A few of steel’s characteristics that make it a “green” product compared to other building materials are:

Steel is 100% recyclable, and upon being recycled, it doesn’t lose its strength or durable characteristics. This means you can take old steel, and make it into a new building without wasting more resources! It also reduces energy consumption!

Steel Construction has many advantages. Since our structures are prefabricated at an offsite location, and then brought to you in easy-to-assemble pieces, no machinery is needed, and labor is used minimally. This saves energy, time, and resources.

Steel buildings require less heating and cooling to maintain room temperature, as air flow is easier to control. For further air flow control, our buildings are easily insulated, which saves even more on HVAC costs and reduces energy consumption.

Steel is very durable. Where other materials break down, rot, or need upgrades to structural support, steel needs none. You will use less materials and energy on the lifetime of a steel building, where a wood building will need to be replaced in the future (or at least parts of it).

Save Trees, Use Steel!

To us, steel is the obvious winner. That’s why it’s the main ingredient in all our building designs. If you are in need of a building that protects your assets, and you’re interested in being more environmentally friendly, we want to help you reduce your carbon footprint!

Add Walls and You’ve Got a Metal Garage!

What’s the Difference Between a Carport and Garage?

The answer is, walls!! A garage is a carport with walls that enclose the structure! If you want extra protection from damaging weather and potential criminal activity, a metal garage is the solution. Our steel is a thick 14 gauge, and can be upgraded to the more durable 12 gauge at your discretion. Our security options are plentiful. Along with the option to upgrade to 12 gauge steel, we offer certification opportunities and auger anchors. Our buildings are amazingly useful for protection of valuables, and you can add as many garage doors, with customizable sizes, to your structure as long as space is permitting. Don’t rely on a wooden building for your protective needs. Use an expertly crafted metal building as your storage unit.

Metal Garages can be More than Just Storage

Green Metal Shelter w/ 3 Garage DoorsUse your garage as a workshop or automotive repair shop! We know that no two wood workers or auto repair junkies are the same. This logic is the fundamental reasoning behind our entire business model! We want to let you design the perfect building for your specific needs. Build yours with space for work benches, table saws, tool storage, and more!
