This is true with angles, structural tubes (also known as hollow structural sections) and channels. An HSS 12x12 is truly 12 by 12 and a C12 is truly 12 deep. In contrast, a wide-flange steel beam, also known as an I-beam or a W-shape, can vary. For instance, the most commonly used W12 beams vary from 11 Residential Steel Beams - Ask the BuilderTypically, youll see beam sizes called out in numeric form like 8x17. Usually this means the steel beam is very close to 8 inches tall and weighs 17 pounds per linear foot. This is a very common size found in many residential homes. But you can get 8-inch-tall steel I-beams that weigh over 35 pounds per foot.
Steel Beam Wide Flange Beam, H-Beam, and I-Beam. Hot-rolled steel beam with H-shaped cross section, used mainly in piling and retaining structures. H-beam is developed and optimized from I-beam, a kind of economical profiled steel with a better mechanics Steel I-Beams McMaster-CarrSpecifications Met:ASTM A992. Made of rigid low-carbon steel, these I-beams are often used in construction, framing, lifting, and hoisting applications. Also known as mild steel, low-carbon steel is the most commonly used material for I- beams. It deflects less under load than medium- or high-carbon steel and is less likely to crack from welding. Steel U Channels Steel Angle Steel Beam Steel TeesThere are a variety of products that fall into the steel structural shape category, and numerous uses for each different shape. Industrial Metal Supply offers a full line of durable, long-lasting, and versatile steel structural shapes, including steel channel, steel angle, steel beams, and steel tees.
Published:Feb 21, 2015 Tee Beams, or T-Beams Shipped Nationwide Steel Supply LPA Tee Beam is a steel profile that is not typically made at the mill. Mills only produce small sizes. Larger steel tees are produced by splitting beams, most commonly Wide Flange Beams, but occasionally I-Beams. We use a specially made device to cut the web of a beam to produce two tees. Generally, the cut is made down the middle of the beam C. HENRY STEEL C.
