Structural steel is acategory of steel used for making construction materials in a variety ofshapes. Many structural steel shapes take the form of an elongated beam havinga profile of a specific cross section. Structural steel shapes, sizes, chemicalcomposition, mechanical properties such as strengths, storage practices, etc.,are regulated by standards in most industrialized countries.
Most structural steelshapes, such as I-beams, have high second moments of area, which means they arevery stiff in respect to their cross-sectional area and thus can support a highload without excessive sagging.
The shapes available are described in many published standards worldwide, and a number of specialist and proprietary cross sections are also available.We can supply: H beam, I beam, Angle steel, U channel and Steel sheet pile.
