We are a highly experienced steel contractor, and guarantee excellent results across a range of different services including fabrication, steel drafting and detailing, surface treatment, right down to steel delivery and installation. Each job is treated differently and we pride ourselves on offering flexible and personalized solutions for structural steel.
Steel Fabrication Services have earned a strong reputation as top steel fabricators and exceptional service. After years of experience we are continuing to service builders, home owners and major contractors in all their steel requirements.
We are Ugandan-based steel fabricators proudly servicing residential, industrial, commercial, retail sectors in Uganda and regional east africa. Whatever your steel fabrication requirements, we work closely with you and your structural engineers, architects and design team throughout the process to ensure you get the results you want.
Our aim is to deliver your project on time, on budget and at the quality you would expect from one of Sydney’s best structural steel fabricators. After the approval of drawings, plans are made for fabrication of the components, which is scheduled to fit your requirements. Work is then carried out in our highly equipped workshop.
High-equality metal fabrication is of paramount importance at Steel Fabrication Services, which is why our work is rigorously inspected before and after fabrication. A complete range of steel sections can be supplied, fabricated by our skilled metalworkers and welders to meet your specific requirements.
All sections can be cut to size and can be drilled, plated and delivered in a finish to meet your specific requirements. For high quality, cost effective steel fabrication in uganda and regional east africa, contact our team. We will be happy to help.

In simple terms, as structural steel fabricators we use a variety of techniques to transform basic sections of manufactured steel into custom or predefined shapes that are ready to erect and install. Working from the highly detailed drawings from steel drafters and detailers, the fabricator’s job is essentially to bring those plans to life, which requires an extensive knowledge of the properties of steel and an extremely keen eye for detail. Not only do those materials need to be made with absolute precision so that they are ready to install, they also must arrive on site in the order that they are needed.
Steel fabrication services have come a long way over the years, thanks in large part to the evolution of high-tech computer software. For example, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) systems now monitor and control the movement of machines such as routers, welders and laser cutters, while 3D modelling has made it easy to visualise even the most complex components. The fabrication process itself involves a wide array of manipulation techniques, with the following being some of the most common.
Steel sections are blasted with shot in order to prepare them for fabrication. The main purpose of shot blasting is to provide a clean finish that will be easy to weld as well as a rough surface that will accept paint.
Steel sections are easier to work with when they are cut to length prior to fabrication and this can be done in a number of ways, such as by using circular saws, flame cutting or plasma cutting techniques.
Many modern structures incorporate beautifully curved steel elements that require the fabricator to utilise various rolling and bending techniques. For example, steel can be passed through a set of bending rolls numerous times until the right level of curve has been established, while press braking can be used for more straightforward bends involving lengths of steel up to 12 metres long.
Steel fabrication involves a whole lot of welding, for instance it is used to attach fixtures and fittings as well as to prepare connections for installation on site. Welding uses high heat to melt the parent material along with whatever is being attached to it, so that as the weld pool solidifies the two materials are fused together.
Coatings are applied to steel for both practical and aesthetic purposes and are most commonly applied towards the end of the fabrication process. High-tech coatings can protect the steel against corrosion as well as fire and they are also used to provide a custom look when requested by the architect.

Structural steel is an incredible resource for building and construction. Reliable and versatile, there are many reasons it is so widely used across the entire globe.
Benefits of Structural Steel
The ability to mould and bend steel into different shaped sections means that steel is one of the most structurally sound materials used in construction. The mechanical properties of steel are derived from an array of constituents, including its chemical makeup and its manufacturing process and heat treatment.
A major element in the composition of construction steel is iron; however, the strength of steel can be markedly increased by the addition of various alloys, such as manganese and niobium. While these elements may ultimately strengthen steel, they can also have negative effects on other properties like ductility and weldability.
Mechanical working of steel also plays a part in its overall strength – generally, the more steel is ‘rolled’, the stronger it becomes. Steel also has an extremely high strength to weight ratio, meaning that structurally it is lighter – this has a massive impact on overall building costs.
In most instances, structural steel is the most cost-effective option in construction. In the past 30 years, advancements in steel production processes have seen productivity rates increase exponentially. The time that it takes to produce a single tonne of steel is significantly lower, meaning that as a base material it is much cheaper.
Advancements in steel fabrication and detailing processes have also meant that structural steel is ultimately becoming much cheaper. Grab a steel fabrication quote from us here and see the results yourself.
