• Increased cost savings
• High resistance to torsional loading
• Ease of welding in the shop and field

Benefits and Advantages

Core Advantages

  • HSS is widely available throughout North America from a large number of steel service centers
  • HSS has greater strength-to-weight ratios than wide flange W and HP shapes. So, with HSS you need less steel, by weight, to do the job. And less weight equals less cost.
  • Excellent compression and support characteristics and superior torsional resistance make HSS particularly well suited to all types of column applications
  • HSS is made from steel, one of the world’s most recyclable and recycled materials
  • Torsional strength makes HSS an excellent choice for bracing and perimeter members
  • Less surface area than open sections allows for reduced clean up and painting
  • Connection information is now widely available for use throughout North America
  • Wide variety of shapes and wall thicknesses are available
  • The uniform shape of HSS makes it easy to fabricate and well suited for architecturally exposed applications
