Making Steel Look Good Inside the Home

In this blog from someone in St Louis, we see attempts to bring steel structures inside the home as a design element instead of something to hide. The picture below shows how they have kept the stairs, ledge and ceiling beams exposed, contrasting and at the same time complementing the softness of the wood in the rest of the house.

We’ve come a long way

The history of the modern steel industry began in the late 1850’s when Henry Bessemer developed a converter that made steel easier to produce, paving the way for its eventual use in construction as it was too expensive to make before.

Here, from wikipedia, is the patent drawing for Bessemer’s process:

Of course we have come a long way since then. Today, 21st Century Steel Mill, Inc. which is located in Taytay, Rizal has a rolling capacity of 10,000 Metric Tons per month.

We manufacture, among other sectional steel bars:
(1) Angle
(2) Channel
(3) Flat

Approved by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), we use the Philippine Standard (PS) Mark of “21” for angle bars and are certified to pass all safety standards.
