When it comes to safety, nothing is more important than the quality of your steel products. One of the best ways to ensure quality is by buying products from shops certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).  Buying from an AISC certified shop is beneficial for the steel industry and beneficial for your business.  

Why? Because the AISC is a national trade organization that evaluates steel fabricators and erectors to ensure that they meet the highest standards of both quality and safety.  

D5 Engineered Products manufactures their pre-engineered products in AISC-certified shops to ensure they meet or exceed the highest standards.  

So, why is it important to buy products from an AISC certified shop? Let’s take a deeper look.

What Does it Take to get AISC Certified?

Here is what a shop must accomplish to get AISC certification. 

  • A minimum of two years in steel fabrication and erection

  • The company must undergo an on-site audit including an in depth examination of facilities, processes, and procedures
