Product Description

Beams are designed to support horizontal loading across their axis and are therefore much deeper than they are wide in order to prevent bending. The most common beam in construction is the I-beam, also known as a universal beam – a steel member with an I or H-shaped cross-section. I-beams have a strong centre or 'web' for vertical support, along with flanges on either side to provide strength in the horizontal plane.
