Kuala Lumpur: Sky Scrapers of Steel

The Sky line of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is known throughout Asia and indeed the World for its iconic landmarks. But perhaps what is less well known is what exactly is holding one of Asia’s world city’s tallest buildings peering skywards.

A prime example of the architectural triumphs of KL’s downtown is the Petronas twin towers. When construction was completed in 1996 and officially speaking between the periods of 1998-2004 they were the tallest buildings in the world standing at 451.9m (1483ft).


The other most prominent feature of the city’s skyline is the Kuala Lumpur Tower, with a less extreme height but arguably more iconic shape this tower reaches a height of 421 meters at its peak. Purposefully designed to provide KL with better telecommunications with its aerial its bubble also houses an observation deck, bar and revolving restaurant. Holding both of these impressive structures together and with such great strength is galvanized steel. For durability and strength both structures use this material extensively throughout, with it being hot-dip galvanized and then duplex coated.


Shanghai Metal Corporation offers steel in a multitude of forms that can be used to satisfy the applications mentioned above. These include galvanized steel coils, strips, sheets, plates, wire, pre-painted steel, roofing material (in a number of profiles) as well as steel grating, stainless steel and copper.
