NJR Steel branches stock a broad range of beams which 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. They may be used on their own or cast in concrete.
We supply superior quality BS EN10025-2-S355 JR, JR IPE and JR IPE (AA) universal beams.
