Universal Columns (UC) are also known as Rolled Steel Joists (RSJ's), H Beams or Sections, and I beams or sections Beams. This steelwork has vertical "web" and the horizontal "flange" that are very similar in length. Columns amongst with beams are mainly used in structural applications.
Universal beam can be known as H-beam, W-beam (for "wide flange"), rolled steel joist (RSJ). The horizontal elements of the universal beam are called "flanges" and they are wider than vertical element "web". This steelwork is commonly used in construction and civil engineering.
This was the first and still common form of hollow section. Constant clean lines provides a very smooth surface appearance which is often used in many high-profile applications such as building construction and other structural areas.
The "equal-sided" symmetry of SHS is commonly used when a balance is required between strength and functionality. In terms of appearance it is positioned between a CHS and RHS. It is commonly used in structural and mechanical applications.
Rectangular Hollow Sections which is also known as a RHS is very popular in construction and other structural & mechanical applications. This has been assisted by the section's inherent flat surfaces making it more economical for joining and other fabrication processes.
This shape of steelwork is commonly known for a high flexibility of composition and a fast and cost reduced construction. They have parallel legs and their tolerances are defined by EN 10056-2 (1993).
Rolled Steel Equal Angle (EA), also known as Angles, Rolled Steel Angle, or RSA are mainly used in commerce and industry but also in machinery and equipment building.
Flat bars are described as a flat, rectangular section with square edges. This is cost-effective steel product that is suitable for a wide variety of applications and is distributed into the construction, manufacturing, fabrication, engineering and other industries.
