More About Us
The Steel Tube Institute was formed in 1930 when a group of manufacturers joined forces to promote and market steel tubing. Their goal was to mount a cooperative effort that would improve manufacturing techniques and inform customers about their products’ utility and versatility.
STI HAS DEVELOPED AN ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATION (EPD) FOR STANDARD (NON-FABRICATED)
On behalf of our Hollow Structural Sections (HSS) producing companies, STI has developed an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for standard (non-fabricated) HSS. This EPD can be used to calculate credits within the LEED v4 rating system and to meet a growing number of procurement requirements for governments and industry. Steel remains the world’s most recycled material and is often a material-of-choice for designers who are seeking to achieve LEED or other certifications.
