Building & infrastructure Stainless steel for structural applications

An inspired choice for load-bearing structures, stainless steel delivers exceptional strength with added benefits – like the corrosion resistance of steel in the Supra range, and light weight of high-strength duplex steel in the Forta range.

Stainless steel can be used in all types of load-bearing structures. It is a good replacement for carbon steel, especially where the material is exposed to corrosive environments, or where aesthetic or hygienic requirements necessitate its use. You can rely on our deep technical expertise as you select products from the Forta and Supra ranges in quarto plate, rebar, and sheet and plate.

Outokumpu Plate Service Centers offer a wide range of products – bent profiles, welded I- and H-beams and hollow section tubes – in both standard austenitic steels from our Core and Supra range and high-alloyed special grades from our Forta duplex or Ultra ranges. All are fully recyclable. Most grades use nearly 90% recycled steel content. Outokumpu is the most sustainable supplier of stainless steel for the most sustainable solutions.

Benefits of using stainless steel in structural applications


  • Load bearing support structures for facades and roofs, balustrades and balconies and fastening elements

  • Structural beams for buildings and bridges
  • New and reconstructed concrete walls and foundations


  • With high-strength Outokumpu duplex steel, weight savings can be achieved, saving costs in many areas
  • Our Forta Duplex range with lean, standard and super duplexes with their high chromium content and low nickel content deliver an exceptional combination of high strength and corrosion resistance and uniquely cost-effective solutions
  • Reduced maintenance means lower total life-cycle cost


  • Mechanically produced beams, rectangular tubes and bend profiles are manufactured in efficient, competitive processes
  • Large stock of raw material, backed by fast material flow, means short delivery times
  • Production lengths of up to 13 m (without length splicing)
