Standard I-Beam and S-Beam Standard I-Beam and S-Beam

The standard I-Beam is named for their distinctive shape, similar to a capital letter “I”. The horizontal pieces are known as flanges, and the vertical piece is called the web. This shape is very efficient for carrying loads of weight without bending.

I-beams are structural support materials that are primarily used for building. Able to bear excessive amounts of pressure, I-beams ensure structural integrity and stability.

The thickness of the I-beam will determine the type of jobs it is best suited for. It is important to consider the force applied, the weight carried and the tension and compression. Smaller sizes are normally used for jobs where the amount of pressure and weight will be minimal, while larger thicker sizes of steel I-beams are used to support structures that bear greater amounts of weight.
