I-beams are perfect for structural support and are most commonly used for buildings. Its distinctive “I” shape offers a longer vertical piece, referred to as the web, compared to the flanges. Construction I-beams are often made from steel, aluminum, or other steel that is low alloy.
Steel I-Beams excel at carrying large amounts of weight without bending or twisting, even at longer distances. That is what makes them perfect for structural support in buildings and bridges. Even with excessive pressure, a steel I-Beam will not lose structural integrity or buckle.
These steel beams come in many different thicknesses that will be more suited for specific jobs. Some construction factors to consider are how much weight will be carried and the amount of tension that the beam will need to withstand.
Smaller steel I-Beams are best for jobs where there will be minimal pressure. Larger and thicker steel I-Beams are perfect for supporting structures or any project that will have more significant amounts of weight. They also don’t require any extra steel allowing them to be cost-effective.
