04 Jun Sheet Steel Fabrication and Ironworks

It may seem that sheet steel fabrication and ironworks have similar jobs, both are classed as highly skilled trades, but both have different skill sets and utilize different tools and materials. Usually, ironwork is more structural and sheet metal fabrication is more functional.


An ironworks or iron works is a building site where iron Is smelted and where heavy iron and steel products are made. An integrated ironworks in the 19thcentury usually included one or more blast furnaces and a number of pudding furnaces or a foundry with or without other kinds of ironworks.

There are three main types of ironworkers:

  • Structural ironworkers erect the framework of bridges, buildings, stadiums, amusement park rides, bank vaults and other large scale industrial metal projects according to engineer blueprints.
  • Ornamental ironworkers, or finishers, are responsible for the more architectural metal elements such as window frames, stairways, catwalks, railings, fencing, gates and building entranceways. This ironwork requires a high skill in arc welding.
  • Reinforcing ironworkers, or rodbusters, is to strengthen structures. These are the workers who place a tie rebar, and reinforce concrete footings, slabs, bridge frame work and building structures.



These skilled tradesmen frequently work in metal fabrication shops or at manufacturing plants and specialise in fabrication, installation or maintenance, but may also perform tasks in all three areas. There is a long list of fabrications that can be produced by sheet metal workers, including roofs and rain gutters, heating and cooling systems, handrails, and more. When fabricating using sheet metal you have to take into consideration the thickness, tensile strength, manufacturing method and quality. There are as many types of sheet metal as there are types of metal, most commonly used ones are aluminium, steel, stainless steel, zinc, copper and a variety of alloys.

Workshop Welding

18 May Welding In Dorset

Workshop WeldingHere at Rowtecour workshop is constantly busy with new materials coming in and finished products going out. We use both MIG and TIG welding within our workshop, MIG stands for ‘Metal Inert Gas’ and TIG means ‘Tungsten Inert Gas’.

Welding Definitions

MIG welding is an arc welding process in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base materials together. A shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination. The technical name for it is ‘Gas Metal Arc Welding’, or GMAW; the slang name for it is ‘Wire Welding’. We tend to use MIG welding for the majority of our projects here at Rowtec.

TIG welding, also known as ‘Gas Tungsten Arc Welding’ (GTAW), is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode are protected from oxidation or other atmosphere contamination by an inert shielding gas, argon or helium, and a filler metal is normally used, though some welds, known as autogenous welds do not require it.

Our Philosophy

Here at Rowtec, we will not let a product go out the door unless we are 100% happy with the quality of it, so you can count on us providing our best work each and every time. We take great care and attention when it comes to the production of work. We triple check all measurements and materials to guarantee the best end product for our clients.
