  • Infrastructure solutions

    • Dedicated partner, strongly involved
      You can rely on SSAB to provide you with first-rate infrastructure products that are responsibly produced and offer great value for money. To us, partnering with customers means committing to prompt delivery and consulting with you during the design and execution stages as needed.
      SSAB’s extensive range of infrastructure construction products consists of steel pipe piles and retaining walls for foundations and harbor structures. The company offers also safety barriers systems, trapezoidal sections for bridge girders, a range of steel pipe products for water mains and expandable rock bolts for underground mine and tunnel roof reinforcement.

    • Versatile range of steel pile dimensions
      SSAB’s versatile range of steel pile dimensions enables you to select the optimal size, steel grade and length for your project. Piles are installed with driven or drilled technology and come in diameters of 76.1–1220 mm (3.0–40.0 in.) and thicknesses of 6.3–23 mm (0.25–0.91 in.). SSAB’s steel grades especially for piling are S440J2H and S550J2H.

    • Retaining walls
      Retaining wall structures, Combi wall and RD® pile wall, based on steel piles are often the best solution to replace traditional, labor intensive cast-in-place based retaining wall structures. Combi wall and RD® pile wall have clearly higher resistance against vertical loads than regular sheet pile walls. They also feature excellent bending stiffness and resistance.
      RD® pile wall is specially designed for challenging conditions, for instance, for faster implementation of retaining walls and other foundation structures.

    • Build stronger with high performance RRs and RDs steel micropiles
      Our high-strength RR® and RD® micropiles, in combination with efficient designing, easy and quick installation, lower environmental impact than traditional piling create a solution that is now stronger than ever.
      By using the higher steel grade S550J2H, the micropiles load-bearing capacity can be added by up to 20% over that of steel grade S460J2H. The increased load-bearing capacity of the pile can be maximized by using smaller micropiles or decreasing the number of micropiles. For the customer, this means a significant improvement in the overall economy of the project.

    • Design tools
      Software for fast and easy design

      RRPileCalc is a design program for SSAB's steel piles. Eurocodes as well as National codes and instructions are applied in the end-bearing pile design.

  • Transportation
    Whether on land, at sea or in the air, you’ll find SSAB steel in transportation and infrastructure solutions that powerfully impact our world.

    Applications:

    • Trailers
      Trailers make the perfect application for Strenx®, where you get more payload without increasing the total weight of the trailer.

    • Truck body builders
      Whatever you are building, Strenx® can make your products lighter, stronger and more sustainable.

    • Tipper bodies
      Tipper bodies face exposure to severe wear and impact during their lifecycle. By using Hardox® you can substantially lower the lifecycle cost.

    • Containers
      Containers benefit from using high-strength steel, especially when combined with the weathering steel properties that increase the corrosion resistance when the steel is exposed to the air.

    • Trucks
      With vehicles facing increasing demands on both fuel efficiency crash performance, the use of high-strength steel satisfies these often competing requirements.

    • Buses
      With more traffic on the roads and higher speeds, buses are one of the safest methods of transportation. Using high-strength steels in the safety zones makes driving and traveling on the road even safer.

    • Railway transport
      Railway transport is the most energy-efficient way to move goods or people on the ground. Still, there is room for improvement using high-strength steels to ensure better safety, efficiency and a higher payload.

    • Components
      A wide variety of components perform better when produced with high-strength steel in heavy transport.

 

  • Yellow goods and contruction machinery
    Yellow goods, used for road construction and other kinds of earthmoving activities, operate in harsh conditions. Its components are subject to wear and abrasion from asphalt, rocks and other abrasive materials. Simultaneously, all frame structures need to be rigid and strong to endure dumping loads.
    In these conditions, increasing wear resistance in components subjected to wear can lower life-cycle costs and decrease down time. SSAB's wear plate Hardox has unique characteristics of excellent toughness and hardness as well as superior workshop properties. It can also be used as a load-bearing part in many applications, due to its strong structural properties.

    Using Hardox® steel, with increased wear resistance and yield strength, for your yellow goods or construction machinery gives you the opportunity to design lighter structures without loosing strength. For a typical excavator the weight can be reduced by 10-30%.

    Applications:

    • Steel for articulated dump trucks

    • Steel for road pavers, paver hoppers and more

    • Steel for road planers and road rollers

    • Steel for excavator bucket components

    • Steel for loader, dozer and grader components

    • Steel for dragline bucket components

    • Steel for snow plow blades, forklift trucks and lamellar forks

  • Raw material handling
    In raw material handling, wear resistance is a key factor for operations in mines and quarries. SSAB’s Hardox® wear plate offers a unique combination of toughness, hardness and workshop properties. Its excellent toughness enables end users of mining and quarrying equipment to use even higher hardness levels, resulting in life-cycle cost advantages and less downtime. In conditions with sliding wear from a combination of coal and granite, the service life of Hardox® 600 is nearly 10 times longer than for mild steel, offering cost savings over and over again.

    For manufacturers of material handling equipment for mining and quarrying, thinner material will of course mean lower fuel consumption and higher payload. In addition the excellent workshop properties of Hardox® wear plate will also lower your manufacturing costs by 10-30%.

    Applications:
    • Dump truck bodies, liners and tail gates in Hardox® wear plate

    • Excavator buckets and front loaders in Hardox® wear plate

    • Hardox® wear plate for crusher hammers, wear liners, chute liners, hammers and crushers
