Construction and Structural Steel
Structural steel is a resource that can be used for any number of things, including transport, manufacturing, the auto industry and construction – just to name a few. However, it is ‘Construction and Structural Steel’ we wanted to address in this blog, and fill our readers in on why structural steel is the ideal choice in the making of structures no matter their purpose.
Structural Steel is Durable
Steel is incredibly durable and can handle both hot and cold weather, wet and dry elements, as well as earthquakes and fires …it is a resource that does not age or rot and offers a long shelf-life.
Structural Steel is Flexible
Steel also provides endless options for shape, size and finish, offering those constructing out of steel a lot of customizable choices.
Structural Steel is Eco-Friendly
We can’t talk about this fact enough, that steel is an eco-friendly material that is the most recycled product in the world. Which also makes it energy efficient and capable of repeat use.
Structural Steel is Affordable
Steel is also often more affordable than other building materials and is a low/no maintenance product that will last effortlessly for decades.
Structural Steel is Strong
Steel has the ability to withstand a lot of weight without bending or changing form, and it is also lighter than wood, making it easy to transport and erect no matter the environment.
Structural Steel offers Easy Assembly
When it comes to fabricated steel, constructing a steel structure is easy – from shop to setup with the help of our welders as needed.
Our fabrication facility in Langley manufactures projects from raw metal materials, and the finished product delivers a variety of outcomes and personalized appeal, not simply offering a function – but also a finish that is to your choosing.

We pride ourselves in our diverse craftsmanship and ability to create high quality results, and are ready to help you with your construction project at a time convenient for you!

The Easy Addition of a Steel Space
Adding on to your business can come in many forms. Whether choosing to expand your online presence or physically adding on to your actual space …which is where we come in to tell you about “The Easy Addition of a Steel Space”!
The Cost Effective Nature of a Steel Expansion
Creating added space with steel is likely more doable and cost effective than you might think. With the flexibility of a steel addition, you have a variety of interior and exterior options to choose from, all of which can be pre-fabricated and then quickly assembled so as to not disrupt any regular work hours or flow to your business. An excellent solution for those looking to expand their business without any hassle, downtime, or high costs associated with either.
Consider a Steel Mezzanine for Added Function
One of the ways to created added interior space without having to actually build on to your structure, is to implement a steel mezzanine into the inside of your business mainframe. In doing so, you can immediately create an elevated space for storage, an in-house office location, display options, added processing abilities, or a functional shopping area.
Not only is this a quick and convenient way to add to your interior space, but also offers you a portable option that is capable of moving as needed.
Getting Creative with Your Steel Mezzanine
Not only can this steel structure provide logistical solutions, it can also add to your interior space and create a whole new dimension to your store – such as an in-house coffee shop for customers.
Regardless of if you run an office space or a retail location, coming up with creative additions to set yourself apart from the competition is always a good idea, and having a coffee shop right in your building structure is truly a stroke of genius!
At Absolute Fabrication, we offer a team of highly skilled designers and steel fabrication staff who can design, create, and erect your structure in minimal time, within the budget you specify. We are capable of creating an addition you likely didn’t even know was possible within your office, retail or restaurant location, and are ready to help when you are ready to add a steel addition to your space!

Steel Fabrication – More Than Just Metal
There is often a misconception that steel fabrication offers very limited texture and appeal to an end product, with images of shiny basic metal coming to mind. But the truth is, is that there are many ways to fabricate and finish steel in order to create a variety of end results as the client sees fit. Which is why Absolute Fabrication wanted to share why ‘Steel Fabrication is More Than Just Metal’ ,and help our reading better understand that many finished appeals metal can offer.
Choosing a Metal Finish
As mentioned, there are a variety of ways in which you can finish a metal project. From metal plating to brushed or buff polished metal, as well as sand blasting and powder coating – among others.
Metal Plating - alters the surface of the metal through a chemical bath, which gives is a specific esthetic appeal, and helps with durability, surface friction, and resistance to corrosion.

Brushed Metal – creates a “rough” look to the metal, which can help hide any metal defects present and future, resulting in an even look with more of a matte finish.

Buff Metal Polishing – on the other hand, offers a high gloss, non-textured finish, which is very smooth to the touch and shiny visually.

Sand Blasting – also offers a matte finish and dull texture, and is often used on soft metals to create this specific finish for clients who want to add detail to their steel project.

Powder Coating - gives metal a decorative finish and can create a “wood look”, among many other finished visual appeals, with increased durability as well.

The Benefits of a Metal Finishing
• Durability and Tarnish Resistance
• Overall Esthetic Appeal
• Conductivity
• Chemical and Electrical Resistance

At Absolute Fabrication, we are a full service metal fabrication shop in Langley and are passionate about what we do. We pride ourselves in our diverse craftsmanship and ability to create high quality results, and will help you arrive at an end-result you will be proud of!

Choosing Rust-Resistant Steel Fabrication for Your Business
Buying into a business solution that has a short shelf-life due to wear and tear, can seem like a throwaway expense a lot of companies don’t want to take on, which is where ‘Choosing Rust-Resistant Steel Fabrication for Your Business’ comes into play!
The Rust-Resistant Nature of Stainless Steel
It’s common knowledge that steel rusts, but there are ways in which to protect it so that it is rust-resistant, offering a longer shelf life and minimizing cost, while still providing steel solutions for your company.
Although stainless steel isn’t entirely rust proof in it’s natural state, there are ways to prevent rust - including a process known as passivating.
What Is Passivating?
Passivating involves introducing a high level of surface chromium into the steel, allowing for the steel to retain resistance to corrosion and maintain its overall appeal indefinitely without the risk of rust.
What Is Rust?
Simply put - rust is essentially a breakdown of the metal, which leads to corrosion.
However, because you can choose over 150 grades of stainless steel, there are more options for tried and true products – such as steel fortified with higher chromium content that will help to reduce or eliminate the risk of rust.
At Absolute Fabrication, we have the products and solutions to keep your stainless steel in top form, and are here to help you create your end-product, along with prolong the life of your stainless steel project indefinitely.

We offer quality fabrication in steel, aluminum, and/or stainless steels and our shop is expertly equipped with profile plate burning, shearing, forming and cutting equipment. From gauge material to 10” plates, our profile-cutting table can cut any shape and quantity you need. Shearing and forming capacity up to 3/8”.Our HyD MACH S-20 band saw can cut up to 18 1/2” wide, 13” round material or stack material for fast repetitive processing.

So if you are looking for a cost-effective business solution, let us know how we can help by calling our office at any time with your questions …we look forward to serving your needs!

The Benefits of Investing in Local for Your Business

Buying local is a huge marketing tool for companies looking to influence consumers in today’s marketplace, but buying local doesn’t only benefit consumers – it can also be a benefit to businesses as well. Which is why Absolute Fabrication wants to fill our reading audience in on ‘The Benefits of Investing in Local for Your Business’!
Real Results in Real Time
A lot of companies look to save money purchasing their business solutions overseas, but when it comes to real results – often buying in real time will count for a lot.
Errors with building instruction on a steel fabrication project can cost time, which in essence, costs money too. There is little worse than stalling ‘business as usual’ because your overseas purchase hasn’t come through as expected, or language barriers are making it difficult to properly communicate instructions and desired outcomes.
Which is why investing in another local business, likely much like your own, will mean the difference in receiving exactly what you want, on time and on budget, vs. having to wait for, fix or resort to whatever business solution you ended up receiving when it finally comes through.
Joint Benefits in Sharing Local Transactions
There is a lot to be said for being a part of local economy growth, and if you are a local business yourself, you can appreciate the nature of loyal customers and those who appreciate the passion that goes into owning and operating your own company.
Likewise, Absolute Fabrication is a family owned and operated business. We keep our focus on attention to detail and pride ourselves on our diverse craftsmanship, skill set and ability to create high quality products. We offer fabrication and welding services on a variety of different materials such as stainless steel, aluminum and mild steel, with commercial projects ranging from structural to decorative, including services such as…

Why Full Service Fabrication Companies Can Save You Time & Money

As a full-service fabrication company, Absolute Fabrication and Machining Ltd. is proud to help clients take their concept straight through to completion, as well as assist with assembly as needed.
Although this might seem “standard” when hiring a fabrication company, not all companies are created equal on that front. Whether it’s a difference in skillset, machinery, or local service and setup availability – Absolute Fabrication is confident in our finished product and knows exactly ‘Why Full Service Fabrication Companies Can Save You Time & Money’!
In-House Drafting & Design
Our drafting and design team offers trained technicians in both AutoCAD and SolidWorks programming, backed by years of experience, an eye for detail, and the creative know-how to come up with ideas you may not have considered.

This plays into both time-savings as well as money-savings, as one often bleeds into the other, and wasting a lot of time figuring out the best design or finished product to serve your company means costly time away from your business.

SolidWorks Abilities
Whether you require a basic concept model, a 2D drawing, or a full-fledged 3D model for design automation – SolidWorks offers us the ability to provide that for our clients.

AutoCAD Abilities
Similarly, AutoCAD also utilizes programs for 2D and 3D designs and drafting. The precision is impeccable, as is the outcome – delivering upon exactly what you need when you need it.

Don’t waste time and money by outsourcing your steel fabrication projects to an overseas company that promises much but might offer little. Although the initial quote may seem appealing, the truth of the matter is, is that local counts for a lot – and in the end, can often mean you actually save more than you spend not having to correct errors and/or be able to interact with your fabrication company in-person.

If you are in need of a business solution, trust our trained professionals to create your steel project by calling 604-888-8842, or fill in our convenient online form.
We look forward to finding a solution for your business challenge by presenting you with design ideas you may not have considered!
