There are many steel fabrication companies to choose from across the UK, many of which offer a range of fabrication services using a variety of metals. However, few specialise in delivering high quality heavy gauge steel fabrications.

Using a specialist heavy gauge steel fabricator will provide a number of advantages over general fabricators.

Skill and expertise customers can rely on

Heavy gauge steel fabrication engineers rely on a wealth of knowledge, skill and experience to produce precision fabrications that meet even the most complex specifications with exceptional quality.

Companies will follow strict quality management procedures accredited to ISO 9001: 2008, and if they are producing fabrications destined for use in construction, then they will also need to hold CE marking approval to BS EN 1090-1 in respect of structural steelwork. Lycett fulfils this requirement within group.

In addition, personnel will be trained and qualified in a variety of disciplines such as:

  • PCN (Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing) to level 2
  • CSWIP (Certification Scheme for Welding Inspection Personnel) levels 1 and 2
  • BS EN 9606-1 2013 in MAG and MMA welding
  • Shot blasting to BS EN ISO 8501-1: 2007 (SA2.5) Surface Preparation Standard

A complete service ensuring consistency and quality

Fabrication companies who specialise in heavy steel fabrication will be able to offer a complete service. Many companies have to look to outsource parts of the fabrication service, whether that’s cutting, welding and assembly, or even finishing. Using a specialist company means they will have all the right equipment and machinery that is able to handle heavy steel fabrications, as well as skilled personnel. This means that they are able to offer a complete service which enables total consistency and reliable quality control throughout the whole process.
