Ternium's steel is present in all the stages of construction
Ternium strengthens each construction it participates in. Inside the cement columns, steel rods give stability and strength to most structures, from bridges and huge skyscrapers to our own homes, making the world a safer place to live.
The first to use steel rods to reinforce concrete structures was the French inventor Joseph-Louis Lambot, who in the 1840s chose to add mesh and rods to give greater resistance to his water tanks. The technique was so effective that, shortly after, it began to be used in constructions, roads and even boats, guaranteeing very good results in all the projects.
The steel rod is an economical, versatile, and reusable material. In addition to resistance, it provides durability, as it can remain firm for several decades and generate minimal corrosion. This is how it offers a long life to constructions, such as the emblematic Torre Latinoamericana in Mexico City, inaugurated in 1956, which has remained intact even after strong earthquakes due to its solid structure, which supports the 25 thousand tons that the building weighs.
Another advantage of using steel rods is related to the mechanic and energetic efficiency in construction, as it is a determining factor in the creation of more stable and compact foundations, which consume fewer resources and leave more available space.
In the specific case of the Ternium rod, it's important to highlight that it is made of 100% recycled steel, which significantly reduces its impact on the environment.
Some of the advantages of steel rods include offering mechanic and energetic efficiency in construction.
Steel inside and outside
People who give their home the value it deserves aren't satisfied with just any construction material. They look for the best in the market to ensure that the investment brings them the expected benefits.
If you look carefully, you'll notice that Ternium's steel is part of all the stages of construction: in the form of tubes that conduct fluids, gases, or cables in the interior; as rods or Multypanel system in the walls; with profiles in frames, doors, windows, shelves, stairs, accessories, and linings in the exterior; and with mezzanines of Losacero system or tiles, as is the case of the galvanized steel tile Galvateja Plus.
Ternium Galvateja Plus, the galvanized-steel roof tile, adds value and aesthetic sense to constructions
Galvateja Plus roof tiles are galvanized and painted with "cool roof" paint, which, in addition to giving them a similar appearance to the traditional roof tiles, contribute to increase the durability of a building and reflect the sun's rays. This last feature is very important since it avoids thermal damage inside the property.
Whether you need steel for housing or infrastructure, you'll always find the solution to be a Ternium solution with the highest quality on steel products. Our main goal is to support the growing and development of Mexico, participating in modern projects and developing products for the construction industry, based on the regulations and technical certifications that ensure total security.
We put our soul in what we do best: Mexican steel.
