Drawing of an I-beam

I-Beams

The I-Beam has many advantages over conventional construction timber and is designed to give strength to weight ratio which enables the manufacture of longer and lighter structural members.

The name derives from the ā€˜Iā€™ shaped cross section of the product where the vertical element is held between two horizontal flanges. Each joist is manufactured to precise specifications and efficiently supports both bending and shear in the plane of the web. Resistance to shrinkage is inherent in the product and therefore provides a long-term stable and quiet flooring solution.
