Universal beams are long robust structures featuring an I-shaped cross section typically used for large-scale building projects although they can also be made to order in an H-shape. Our universal steel beams are extremely efficient at carrying very heavy loads, making them perfect for a civil engineering project or one where floors need to be supported during an extension build project or where openings are required in supporting walls.
Universal steel beams are absolutely integral to a building’s security and robustness – if the steel is not manufactured to the highest standard, it can severely compromise a building’s stability.
At Steel Beam Suppliers, we understand how vital it is for your building’s structure to be completely safe, no matter how large or small the project scale. Universal beams may even be considered as the bones or skeletal structure of a building, which is why we ensure that they are of the highest quality standards, including the EN10025 standards.
To ensure that you pick the right universal beams for your project, it is important to know the distinction between universal beams and universal columns. Knowing this difference can help you save time and money as this way, you will only order a product that fully meets your specification.
Universal beams have a lighter load-bearing capacity whereas universal columns have a heavier load-bearing capacity. We also offer a broad range of universal columns to help you meet the demands of your project.
So, if universal columns are used in commercial construction where structural support is required, for example, in supporting floor joists, universal beams (also called I-beam) are typically found in the majority of applications in girders, because they possess a much higher moment of inertia in contrast with universal columns. This makes them more resistant to bending moments owing to the different construction loads, such as self-weight.
If you require universal steel beams fabricated to the highest standard, then you’ve come to the right place, as they can be utilised for all manners of construction purposes, including those for large commercial premises and residential properties. The railways and bridges you see from your office or hotel window most likely have high-quality universal beams at their core.
Since a universal beam has an increased depth compared to other kinds of steel beams, it has a higher loading capability too, making it very versatile for all kinds of civil engineering and home improvement or residential build projects.
Our in-house team can fabricate universal steel beams to the highest quality and in a large number of standard sizes. However, it is crucial to measure the depth correctly before placing your order. Even though a universal beam is typically put between two columns (I-pattern), it can also be used as a column within itself (H-pattern).
If you need guidance on which universal beam to order for your project, our advisors are always available to assist you.
