Prime Steel I-Beam

Texas Iron & Metal started serving customers in the 1920s. Whether you need a standard I-beam for a project or are looking for something else, we want to work with you.

The I-beam got its name from the shape of the steel beam, which looks like the capital letter "I." The horizontal parts are referred to as flanges, while the vertical portion is called a web. The web helps resist shear forces, and the flanges resist bending. Because of this, the standard I-beam is able to bear large amounts of pressure and still maintain stability. We also have an abundance of surplus Less-Than-Prime steel I-beam for sale that offer all the benefits of prime steel.

Texas Iron & Metal is located in Houston, Texas. Whether you are in the market for one standard I-beam or hundreds of them, contact us to request a quote. We offer local and nationwide service.

How Is a Standard I-beam Used?

I-beams are commonly used in the construction of buildings and bridges. To ensure the best support, consider the weight, tension, force, and compression requirements of the structure you are building. If minimal weight and pressure will be supported, then a smaller size I-beam is sufficient. However, if the planned structure is heavy, a thicker I-beam is needed.

Texas Iron & Metal is a prime standard steel I-beam supplier with a wide variety of sizes of standard I-beams and junior beams. The size ranges are as follows:

  • Weight per foot: 4.4 to 121 pounds per foot
  • Web thickness: 0.114 to 0.800
  • Flange width: 1.844 to 8.050
  • Flange thickness: 0.171 to 1.090

We want to be your one-stop shop for I-beams, so if we do not carry the size you need, let us know.
