HISTORICAL SECTION LIBRARY

The historical section library – collated with the assistance of the Australian Steel Institute – contains over 2000 standard steel sections (metric and imperial) produced and used in Australia and New Zealand during the past 60 years. Includes now defunct BHP/AI&S hot-rolled sections, BHP/AI&S cold-formed sections, OneSteel TubeLine, OneSteel DuraGal, Smorgon DualGrade, and many more. References to source material are included.
