London Steel Beam Suppliers

If you are looking for steel beam suppliers in London contact us today. We offer a wide range of RSJ Steel Beams.

Types Of Steel Beam

The building and construction market has become aware of using environmentally friendly materials.

Steel is always a leading choice for tasks as it is considered an "environment-friendly" product and does not give off greenhouse gases. RSJ beams can additionally be recycled an unlimited amount of times.

This causes much less waste product filling out garbage dumps.

Steel Beam Shapes

Here are a few of the different steel beam shapes used in the construction industry. Each shape has its benefits for different purposes within the building process.

If you would like to find out any more information, please get in touch by giving us a phone call or sending us an email. We are always available to provide you with the advice you need.

American Standard Beam (S-Shape)

The American Standard Beam comes in the shape of an 'S' and is commonly called the 's-shaped beam.' The two flanges are generally narrow in shape, and the builder can use the beams designated area for the size and weight of the other units.

Angle (L-Shaped)

This beam comes in both equal and unequal leg sizes to give a variety of uses. The beam itself is 'L-shaped', and the two legs meet to create a 90-degree angle. It is common for construction workers to use this type of beam to build floor systems. 

Bearing Pile (H-Shaped)

If a construction site doesn't have a deep foundation, then these beams are used to create one. The beam is 'H-shaped', and this helps with loading in the tip, from the pile. These beams are best to use in denser soils. 

Channel (C-Shaped)

The Channel Beam has many different names, including 'Structural C-Channel, and 'C-beams.' This is because the beam itself has a cross-section shaped like a 'C.' The Channel Beams provide a cost-effective solution for structures such as bridges and piers. 

Hollow Steel Section (HSS)

The Hollow Steel Section Beam, also known as the HSS Beam, comes in many different shapes, including squares, rectangular and circular. Engineers and builders use these beams for welded steel frames, as the thickness of the radius is twice as thick as the wall. 


I-Beams are often referred to as Universal Beams or H-Beams. They are most commonly used beams in the building, construction and engineering industry, as the shape provides various benefits, including bending and force resistance. 


The pipes are made from structural steel, which is very important for the building and construction industry for a wide variety of applications due to the strength, support, wide range of sizes and stability it provides. 


This load-bearing beam has a cross-section in the shape of a 'T,' which provides strength to carry larger loads. The T-shaped cross-section is made up of a flange at the top and a vertical web at the bottom. 

Custom Shapes

Structural steel can be cut and reshaped to any shape or measurements to match up with the specifications that are required for a certain project. This process is called structural steel fabrication and requires a trained and qualified professional. 

Steel Beam Shapes

Here at London Gates and Railings Ltd, we supply many different types of beams. There are many different types of beams to be used for various purposes within the construction and building industry.

We can cut them down to the measurements and shapes you require to meet your specifications. Please get in touch with us today for more details. Here are a few of the types of beams we supply:

RSJ steel beams

RSJ beam stands for 'Rolled Steel Joist' and are used for support for construction and building projects. They are used in industrial buildings, including warehouses and office blocks. 

Universal Beams

Universal beams are also known as I-beams and H-beams, and they are used in various construction projects due to their strength and support. They resist any bending movement and can withstand strong forces. 

Universal and Steel Columns

Universal Columns are widely used in the building and construction industry and can be cut down to whatever size you require. The width of universal columns is about the same as the depth, unlike Universal Beams.

Parallel Range Channels (PFC Steel)

Parallel Range Channels or PFC sections are commonly used in a building process known as modular construction. 

Tapered Flange Channels (RSC Steel)

Tapered Flange Channels are commonly known as 'C-Beams' due to their c-shaped cross-section. 

Steel Hollow Sections

Steel Hollow Sections come in various different shapes to suit your building requirements. They can be made from many different types of materials. The main shapes include:

  • Circular Hollow Sections
  • Square Hollow Sections (SHS Steel Sections)
  • Rectangular Hollow Sections (RHS Steel Sections)

Steel Angles (Equal Angles & Unequal Angles)

Steel angles are formed in an 'L-shape,' and have a 90-degree angle where the two legs meet. The legs can either be equal length or unequal length and the larger the angle, the more weight it can hold. 

Mild Steel Flat Bars

Mild steel flat bars are widely used in the construction industry as not only are they cost-effective, but they are also recyclable. The material is very adaptable to different conditions, pressures and weights, so mild steel flat bars have many benefits. 

Benefits of Steel

In comparison with other building materials like timber and concrete, steel offers benefits. Steel beams are a far more budget-friendly alternative. They provide a massive quantity of benefits for the specialist, producer, and building owner.

Destabilising loads 

A description of destabilising loads would be a complimentary standing wall in addition to a steel beam. In domestic buildings, free-standing walls are occasional. Wall surfaces are either taken care of via roofing systems or floors and buttressing walls. These are installed at ideal angles to the wall will offer more restraint.

If the wall above the beam is uncontrollable, the wall surface will be deemed unpredictable. These would be classed as a hazardous structure seeking immediate attention and fixing. It is therefore thought that in domestic structures wall surfaces are not destabilising loads. Lots of roofs and floors are structural elements. These supply resistance to side (horizontal) activity and are not destabilising loads.
