Hot Rolled Steel Gussets


Does your project require structural intersections that provide added diagonal support and strength bracing? Hot rolled steel precut gusset plates provide high-strength support and bracing advantages for various construction applications. Looking for steel gussets in custom sizes? Our cut-to-size services deliver hot rolled gussets to your project’s specifications.

What is Hot Rolled Steel Gusset Plate?

Steel gussets are triangular pieces of metal that transfer stresses between connections, increasing the strength of the joints between the gussets. Steel gusset plates are typically fastened using bolts, rivets, or welds and are often used to connect beams and girders to columns or truss members.

Hot Rolled Steel Advantages

Hot rolled steel plate and sheet typically requires much less processing than cold rolled steel, making it a lot less expensive. However, since hot rolled steel can cool at room temperature, it’s free from internal stresses that can arise from quenching or work-hardening processes. Additional hot rolled steel benefits include:
  • Increased malleability
  • Numerous applications
  • Less expensive than cold rolling
  • High rate of production

Differences Between Cold Rolled & Hot Rolled Steel

The main differences between hot rolled and cold rolled steel are how the materials are manufactured. Hot rolling refers to processing done with heat, while cold rolling refers to processes done at or around room temperature. Hot rolled steel precut gussets provide a rougher surface than cold rolled steel gusset plate. High strength and highly formable HR steel gussets are easy to drill, form and weld.

Steel Gusset Plate Applications

Hot rolled steel gusset plate is typically used to join two or more components together or strengthen joints. Hot rolled steel gusset application examples include:
  • Girders
  • Beams
  • Truss members
  • Columns
  • Cords
  • Retrofitting
