Can A Steel Building Collapse Due To Fire?
Steel Buildings in general have a high resistance to fire. This includes the overall structure itself, as well as the components that hold it together. That does not mean it is completely impervious to fire or building collapse. Depending on the melting point of the steel used and the types of components connecting the building together all play a role in the buildings integrity during a fire. As long as your building was designed using high quality fire resistant parts as Safeway Steel Buildings are, your building should be able to withstand a standard fire better then other materials but that is not a guarantee. Some fires burn hotter then others based and the fuel of the fire will determine the longevity of any building. No matter what material it is made out of.
