Tecnovial is a leading company in the development of systems for road and mining infrastructure, and has formed a wide range of corrugated steel structures. Corrugated steel structures have demonstrated themselves to be a highly competitive solution thanks to their significant advantages:
Structural strength: Independent of the specified corrugation, corrugated steel, allows to support large loads making it suitable to use in bridges and low-level passages. In turn, it is flexible and elastic which gives it high resistance to earthquakes.
Efficient Transportation: Being composed of securable with bolts plates, it can be transported to remote areas that are difficult to access. As an example, a truck with a flat ramp can transport about 500 meters of 800 mm pipes.
Easy assembly: The installation of the structure does not require specialized personnel or equipment.
Ecological and reusable: The structures can be easily disassembled and transported in case of relocation. Besides, steel is 100% recyclable which makes it an environmentally friendly solution.
Durability: Steel is a high strength material which can be improved with a Magnelis, galvanized, or epoxy finish.
The structures are provided in different corrugations, depending on the use, dimensions, and type of load requested. The protection scheme to be used will depend on the chemical aggressiveness of the soil and the life expectancy of the project.
It should be noted that Tecnovial can manufacture all its corrugations in Magnelis steel, which offers protection up to 10 times higher than traditional galvanization. The following image indicates the different types of corrugation, according to the required dimensions. However, we recommend always consulting our engineering department, in order to optimize your project.
