When it comes to Stainless Steel fabrication, Master Steel works on a diverse range of commercial and industrial applications, from balustrades and handrails, to architectural components, to large silos and hoppers.
We work with 304 and 316 stainless steel, most often where the final environment is corrosive or otherwise demanding on the materials. We have over 25 years experience in steel fabrication in Queensland across a diverse range of industries.
Stainless Steel is frequently overlooked because of its higher material cost over structural steel. However, stainless can often be the best value option over the life of a project, especially in challenging environments.
Every steel fabrication job we undertake follows these stages. It allows us to reliably deliver projects on time, on budget and to the exacting quality standards required by our clients.
We work with you to confirm the scope of works, project timings, key points of contact and more - everything we need to ensure a successful steel fabrication project.
We review existing structure and/or component design requirements as well as any site-specific requirements that may impact engineering design.
We commence the fabrication stage of the project upon client’s approval of drawings and keep the client informed on our progress
When fabrication is complete, we complete test assembly of components to ensure the specifications conform to the engineering drawings. Once all checks are complete, we arrange delivery of the steel to your site address.
Steel delivered on site is erected by our qualified riggers. On site welding may be required, in which case there will be boilermakers present as well.
Size doesn’t matter to us. We manufacture steel components small and large. What is common about the steelwork we fabricate is the clients’ need for a high quality finished product and/or steel that is being used in a demanding application or business critical project.
To ensure the highest steel manufacturing standards, all our fabricators are fully Australian qualified and professional boilermakers with experience in projects of all sizes. All fabrication work is supervised by a Certified Welding Supervisor to AS 2214. And our entire manufacturing operation is supervised by a CPEng certified Engineering Manager to IOS 3834.
Our fabrication team employs the full range of techniques required for any steel manufacturing project, including:
Master Steel is an ISO 3834 certified company, providing fusion welding services within a full quality controlled manufacturing process, also known as a “factory production control system”.
AS/NZS ISO 3834 controls the entire lifecycle of the welding process, from design right through to inspection. It considers all aspects that could affect weld quality, making it essential for high quality stainless steel fabrication, since it is impossible to undertake complete verification of a welded joint without destroying it.
Our steel manufacturing workshop on the Gold Coast services our clients across Queensland. The 2400 square metre site is set up for 24/7 production flexibility, with 10 individual welding bays, gantry crane for maneuverability and easy access for semi-trailers for us to accept structural members up to 25 metres in length.
Inspections are conducted throughout the fabrication process to ensure strict quality standards and full traceability of materials used on every project.
All welding fabrication is completed to AS 1554.1 and steel structures to AS 4100. As an ISO 3834 certified company, all our products are designed and made in Australia with certified personnel and manufactured to our stringent ISO 3834 compliant quality system.
Companies choose Master Steel for the fabrication of their stainless steel because we utilise highly experienced and certified staff working within the weld quality framework of ISO 3834.

Here are some common questions we get asked on this topic.
The number one advantage of stainless steel is Corrosion Resistance. Depending on the grade, it is able to withstand continual exposure to varying degrees of corrosive atmospheric and water environments, including acids, alkalines, chlorines, etc. Additionally, stainless steel is valued for its aesthetic appearance, hygiene advantages, higher strength-to-weight-ratio, impact resistance and heat resistance.
The key difference between these two metals is the alloying element - mild steel (structural steel) uses carbon, whereas stainless steel uses chromium. The resulting differences include corrosion resistance, malleability, ease of fabrication and cost.
Yes it can. Carbon steel dust and particles settling on stainless steel can attack the surface, as can oils, grease, fingerprints, adhesives and more. This transfer of particles can also originate from abrasive tools used on carbon steel and by walking on particles. For this reason, we maintain a strict separation between fabrication of stainless and mild steels across our entire fabrication process.
