Tecnovial – as a leading company in the development of systems for road and mining infrastructure – produces a wide range of corrugated steel structures. Corrugated steel structures have positioned themselves as a highly competitive solution thanks to their significant advantages:
Structural strength: Regardless of the specified corrugation, corrugated steel can withstand significant loads, being a material suitable for use in bridges and underpasses. Additionally, it is flexible and elastic which gives it high resistance to earthquakes.
Efficient Transportation: Because it is made up by securable with bolts plates, it can be transported to remote and difficult to access areas. For instance, 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.
Environmentally friendly and reusable: The structures can be easily disassembled and transported in case of relocation is needed. In addition, 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 required. The protection scheme to be used will depend on the chemical aggressiveness of the soil and the lifespan expectancy of the project.
t should be noted that Tecnovial can manufacture all of its corrugations in Magnelis steel which offers up to 10 times higher protection 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.
