Universal Beams/Columns are often used in construction due to their load bearing capabilities.  Other common names for these are Girders, Lintels, RSJ's (rolled steel joists), girders, 'I' or 'H' beams. Our mild steel beams and columns are certified to BS 4360-43a / EN10025 – S275JR.

All our beams and columns come unpainted as standard.

Universal beam = the depth of the beam is greater than its width

Universal column = the depth and width of the beam are roughly the same

The dimensions shown, for example, 127 x 76 x 13 = depth of the beam x width of the beam x weight per metre in kilograms. To calculate the weight of a beam or column multiply the total length of the beam by the weight per metre.

We can also supply in any length up to 6m so if you are unable to find the length from our stock you require we can help. Just email us on and we will be pleased to supply you with a quote and a lead time.

Please note: We are unable to advise you on load bearing capacities of our universal beams/columns as all projects differ. If you need to comply with building regulations or if you are unsure as to the size of beam you require we would advise you to contact a structural engineer so the correct calculations for your project can be carried out.
