Advantages of Steel Structure Basketball Stadium

These steel structure arenas have witnessed the legend of the Bull Dynasty, the rise of the Lakers, and the brilliance of countless super basketball superstars, thus becoming the iconic buildings of various cities.
Some arenas have been built for more than half a century, but they are still standing. The overall structure of the arena is very stable. This is due to the structural advantage of the arena-the steel structure. Compared with concrete or wooden structures, steel structures have more stable material properties, and steel has stronger plasticity and can withstand greater tensile deformation. And the steel is more space-saving, the same floor space,the interior space of the arena is wider, the steel is a recyclable material, and the steel components can be smelted again to save resources.
