Steel Support Beams
We make a substantial quantity of steel beams for new openings formed within the load-bearing walls. These are for new kitchen alterations, creating one room from 2 smaller ones and gaining access to brand-new extensions.
However, if it is required to remove more wall surface than is permitted by the Building Regulations, a portal frame is required. This is to change the stability that gets lost as a result of removing the wall. This acts a "goal post" which sends the wind load safely to the ground. Masonry is best suited to constructing with lots of interior wall surfaces.
When big spaces are needed stonework wall surfaces battle to transfer wind tons to the ground. An example is adding a room over an open accessibility to a car park.
Rolled Steel Joists or I Beams as they in some cases called are rolled from a single piece of structural steel. These are made use of extensively in building and construction and civil engineering. The structure aids to withstand shear forces. The flanges endure the majority of the flexing experienced by the RSJ.
Because of existing structure regulations, we are unable to advise on the right dimension to use. However, an architectural designer will have the ability to help and to provide the required certificate. For doors and window openings we stock a complete variety of lintels.
