Although all beams more or less have the shape of the letter “I”, there are a couple of characteristics that separate them between being a true I-beam or being a Wide Flange Beam. BOSS Steel carries a large inventory of sizes and weights of steel beams.
I-Beams: I-beams have tapered flanges for trolley and industrial applications, or when a narrow beam is needed. An I-beam is always taller than it is wide.
Wide Flange Beams: A wide flange beam has straight flanges and is used mainly for home construction purposes. We can also supply structural steel support columns.
