Steel Sizes - There are over 2,600 different steel sizes available. (British, American, European and Australian)

Multi System Licence - With a Multi System Licence, you are able to copy data from one product type to another. For example, if you have created a Boards project and you wish to see what Intumescents products you could use as an alternative, you can copy all of your steel sections and paste them into a Board project.

Project Creation

Project Types Produce projects in m², Items and length and SMM7.

Create New Projects You are able to select individual products or let Steelcalc pick all available products for you.

Phase Two Boards - Steelcalc enables you to make up any combination of required board thicknesses. For instance, if a manufacturer only supplies 15mm boards but you require 30mm to protect the steel sections, then you can create your own 30mm by adding 2x 15mm boards together. Steelcalc will also calculate the extra board required for the corners.

Cost Centre

Cost Centre - The Cost Centre enables you to enter all your costs for each individual board thickness. The Cost Centre prices are transferred into your project on its creation. You can then use the Cost Adjuster facility to amend the prices as required.


Specials - Steelcalc gives you the option to enter any steel sizes even if they are not available in a standard size. Additionally, if one of the available steel sizes are being used in a special way, then you can use the Specials Calculator to help you calculate a new A/V and Girth. Depending on which steel section you use, you can create Edge Beams, Shelf Angles and Integrated Plates.
