Only US steel is used in the manufacture of our steel buildings and carport systems because then we know the steel we use meets or exceeds the various specifications for structural integrity called for by engineering.
When engineering calls for 60 – 65 KSI strength steel Absolute Steel uses 60 – 65 KSI steel. (65 KSI steel = 65,000 pounds of stress per square inch). All steel in the components of an Absolute Steel metal building or carport system meet and/or exceed the criteria specified by independent engineering.
Tubular steel construction requires steel that meets engineering specifications.
To purchase otherwise is an invitation for trouble (see below).
The Costs of Liability
Using steel, as specified by engineering, is cost effective. The difference amounts to a very small upward adjustment in the overall cost of a metal building or any type of carport system. The long term cost effectiveness by avoiding public or property damage pays for itself many times over.

The Meaning of “Certified”
For clarification purposes, the word “Certified” as a representation that a steel structure is engineered is misleading and false. If the plans along with the structural calculations have a licensed professional engineer’s stamp and wet signature then that structure is engineered.
Writing CERTIFIED on a set of drawings does not mean they are an engineered set of plans nor, one might assume, is the structure engineered. For if it was, why wouldn’t they just supply engineering?
