Construction Steel Beam Suppliers
Watford and London
Do you require construction steel beam suppliers in Watford and London? We supply and deliver RSJ Universal Beams or Columns for construction sites throughout London and the surrounding areas.
In the United Kingdom, Universal Beams or Columns are commonly specified with a code including the deepness. This is the measurement extracted from the outer face of the initial flange to the external face of the contrary flange.
The calculation includes the flange size and the kgs per metre. The code could finish with the section kind (Such as UB-- Universal Beam or UC-- Universal Column). All measurements are in metric.
For that reason, a 152x152x23UB would be a Universal Beam of roughly 152 millimetres extensive x 152 millimetres in size. These weigh approximately 23 kgs per metre.
As research has revealed, steel has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio of rebar reinforcement. This is of any structured material in the building market.
This suggests that steel is capable of birthing far more weight and stress. It does this without compromise than a beam that has the very same mass, however, made from wood or concrete. Both residential and business home builders choose to utilise RSJ beams versus other products.

Why is Structural Steel used for Buildings?
As a matter of fact, in areas where natural disasters prevail, buildings are commonly built with a steel structure. This is because they can endure natural forces at their worst when various other products could not. Would you prefer to live in a framework made from timber or one containing RSJ beams throughout an earthquake or cyclone?
Along with our manufacturing side, Able Steel and Metalwork supply a broad range of steels, ferrous and non-ferrous metals. We offer regional building contractors, local businesses and DIY enthusiasts a solution that is second to none.
What are RSJ Steel Beams for Construction?
RSJ steel beams are widely used in the construction industry, as they are very strong, can be reshaped to fit specific designs and structures and can also be cut to any size needed for your project specifications. They are also durable, so they can withstand adverse weather conditions, which is perfect for more obscure structures.
What Sizes do RSJ Come in?
RSJ beams come in a wide variety of sizes, and we have so many to choose from in stock, here at London Gates & Railings Ltd. However, we can also cut these RSJ beams down to the size you require, that will match your specifications for your project.
How Long Does an RSJ Last?
Any metal has been proven to last up to 100 years. However, this needs to be well maintained and looked after. RSJ's can last many, many years, but they must be checked to ensure there is no rust and decay.
What Does RSJ Stand For?
RSJ stands for Rolled Steel Joint and is used a lot in construction for structural steelwork. They have so many benefits for buildings and can be used for a wide variety of structures, including bridges and high rise buildings.
What is Stronger H Beam or I Beam?
The H-Beam is stronger than the I-beam, due to its thickness; however, both of these beams are strong and durable and are useful for different purposes. To find out more, please don't hesitate to contact us today via phone call or email.
Do I Need Planning Permission to Install an RSJ?
This will depend on what you are building, and the construction project you are wanting to start. To find out more about planning permission, you should get in touch with your local council, and they will be able to point you in the right direction and advise you.
