When we hear the words metal fabrication, we might think of large industrial projects that don’t have too much impact on our daily lives. While that thought isn’t incorrect, metal fabrication is actually all around us in many ways. It helps shape our world, giving structure and beauty to many of our shops, homes, and industries. Next time you go out for the day, look at the buildings around you and see where metal fabrication has impacted our world. 

Take a Look Around Retail Shops

Metal fabrication can make things as small as the palm of our hands to as big as the side of a building. You might not realize it, but retail shops and commercial buildings utilize metal fabrication to add style and sophistication both externally and internally. If a retail shop has a beautiful curved entryway or stylized shelving units, you can thank metal fabrication for that. Additionally, signage found on the outside of the shops can be dedicated to metal craftsmen. Designers and engineers work together to create a beautiful blueprint while also choosing a metal and finishing that will help it withstand any weather or physical bumps it could run into, ensuring longevity. 

The Inner Workings of Businesses

Many metal projects go toward helping companies to meet and grow their production needs. Anything from a simple staircase to a full HVAC system can be expertly designed, created, and installed to keep businesses running and growing. Metal fabricators focus on the details, ensuring that whatever is made goes toward the betterment of the client. Projects like vents, tubs, work tables, shelving units, and everything in between are expertly drawn up and created to ensure the most efficiency and effectiveness for the business.  

Your Own Home

Metal fabrication doesn’t end in the workplace. If you want to find metal work around you, simply look in your kitchen. Kitchen hoods are an amazing example of a simple yet beautiful piece of metalwork. Each one is different depending on the metal used, the finishing choice, and the design to fit the kitchen. You could have a piece of art right above your stove. Metal fabrication can also be found in entryways, living rooms, or exteriors. Metal craftsmen could have designed and created your staircase, siding, doorways, and so much more. 

The Travel Industry 

Metal fabrication has a significant impact on the railroad industry. From tools, safety, and access equipment, much of our railroads run off of the creations of metal fabricators. Businesses like Gieske help to improve the railroad industry by continuously developing new tools and equipment internally while being able to completely customize most items. The next time you are on a train, take in the beauty of each part that goes into making it run and keeping you safe. It was designed and created by a metal fabricator. 

These are only a few examples of the many ways metal fabrication surrounds us. If you have further questions or have a project you want to see become a reality, contact the team at Gieske.
