Steel: The Material of Choice
Superior Structural Strength
Recycled steel products
are important to projects
striving to achieve LEED
certification. Highland Tank
can help companies earn
valuable Materials and
Resources credits.
The Steel Advantage
Steel is the material of choice at
Highland Tank because of its many
advantages, and it should be yours
too. As a construction material,
steel is strong, affordable, reliable
and environmentally friendly. Steel
s
unique combination of properties and
characteristics enable it to achieve
performance levels required in today's
storage tanks.
Specified for Strength
We buy steel according to our own
strict guidelines and meeting rigid
ASTM specifications. Our mild
carbon steel is fine grain with superior
toughness and surface quality that
offers both weldability and improved
corrosion resistance. The time-tested
strength and performance of steel
remains unparalleled.
Steel
s structural integrity can withstand
extreme weather conditions or natural
disasters. State-of-the-art fabrication
technology, welding, linings and
coatings reinforce the durability of
Highland
s mild carbon and stainless
steel products.
Environmental Benefits
Steel is 100% recyclable and has the
highest recycling rate of any durable
material in the United States. Unlike
concrete or plastic storage tanks,
even those reinforced with fiberglass,
recycled steel storage tanks ultimately
keep a valuable commodity out of the
nation’s landfills. In addition, the latest
recycling processes drastically reduce
industrial emissions by over 70% to air
and water, accompanied by a reduction
of approximately 30% in the amount of
energy required to produce new steel.
Highland Tank products will form an
integral part of your
green
building.
