METALKAT S.A., among other things, deals
and allocates big experience in the design, study, manufacture and
construction of modern light and heavy steel constructions for
accommodation of professional fields, but also residences. Offices,
industries, factories, centres of storage and distribution of
merchandises, but also open shelters,of light type for cover of grounds
and open spaces.
The design and study is done according to the European codes.
THE METAL BUILDINGS
MODERN METAL MANUFACTURE
The metal manufactures have long
tradition in the field of building projects of large size. Nowadays, with
the technological development in the lining materials, in the methods of
dye and in the insulating materials, they constitute the most convenient
solution for industrial buildings, athletic installations, supermarkets,
commercial buildings, buildings of offices, but also for residences.
BIG FACTOR OF SAFETY
The materials in use have high
specifications of quality, while the factorial production is integral.
Specifically for the earth quaking region of Greece, the manufacture of
steel frames, articulated in the base, guarantees the complete ductility.
The future is datum that it is built from steel. A piece from the future
is also the known in all of us skyscrapers. These giant buildings are the
answer in the curious but usual question even if and how much the steel
buildings bear in the earthquake. The steel buildings provide safety
toward each meteorological phenomenon, even in that of lightnings as they
constitute a cage, which transfers the electricity in the ground
functioning as earth wire. The links of stiffness (cross) and the
contemporary methods of unions that are used in this type of buildings,
but also the panels themselves of incrustation. provide the safety that is
required against horizontal positive charges, as those of wind and
HIGH AESTHETIC RESULT
The variety of lining materials, the
coloured combinations and the attention in the details give in our
buildings, a special look that covers all the architectural requirements.
The choice of steel as the main material, by which the frame of building
will be constituted, automatically "unties our hands" concerning
the shape of a building. We can, with comparatively minimal cost, achieve
architectural shapes that are inaccessible or sometimes and impossible to
be achieved with other materials as the armed concrete, the timber, the
masonry from stones etc.
The biggest miracles of modern architecture are made because of the
existence of steel in their organism. The known to all of us skyscrapers,
the bridges of enormous openings and so much other would be unthinkable
without the existence of steel in their organism.
The modern materials as glass panes, cassettes of aluminium, steel and
inox, undulate and trapezoid sheet-metal, wooden panels etc. as well as
new methods of construction of walls of filling of mixed manufactures
involve real revolution in the design and the functionalism without being
excluded the traditional ways of appearance. The difference lies
exclusively in the frame of building. The exterior look is henceforth our
The extension of the building can be
done fast and simply, as also and its disassembly and its transfer. Thus,
one can build even in rented plot.
SMALL TIME OF CONSTRUCTION
The longest time for the arrival of
materials in the worksite is 2 with 3 months. In this interval the
foundation and the flooring can be manufactured. The time of assembly
ranges according to the surface of the building from 1 until 3 months.
The economy is
incidental to the buildings from steel.
The comparison with other ways of construction of buildings or bridges is
overwhelmingly favourable for the use of steel in the organism.
In the reduction of cost contribute factors as:
Incomparable speed of construction.
Big difference of cost of buildings
particularly for big openings or heights.
Complete exploitation of space as we do not
have big dead spaces from props or joists.
The minimum factor of Institution of Social
Security that is in effect (All the work that concerns reconstruction
concerns in accommodated professions).
The increased factors of cover that are
imposed in the terms of building (stores except drawing) with the
organism from steel, concerning them where their organism is
constituted by concrete, thing that us economises big sums from
purchases of ground.
The possibility of use of exceedingly
possibility of transfer of factor of layout which is prepared to be
imported legislatively in our country, with increase of height of
The modern materials that are used for the
filling of these buildings have small proportion of cost to output.
The buildings can be disassembled completely
afterwards the end of their use, gaining the least cost of demolition.
They are easily expanded. Simply enough most
of the times the abstraction of materials of filling and the addition
of more elements in the organism.
They can bring openings and also hundreds of
metres without intermediate prop giving moreover space in the
construction with the reduction of dead spaces.
They particularly have small cost of
maintenance if they are used with the suitable dyes or galvanism of
the frame before the placement.
They do not present problems with the
earthquake with consequence the lack of need for after earthquake
