What is a steel RSJ and what is it used for?
RSJ is a term commonly used to refer to a rolled steel joist. RSJ’s can also be referred to as steel I beams or H beams, depending on the required profile and use (more to come on that).
Steel beams are commonly used for structural steelwork, where there’s a load that needs to be supported. This could be creating a full skeleton steel structure for a new building or home, or for reinforcing the structural integrity when making alterations to an existing structure in instances such as an extension or opening
Types of RSJ - Steel I beam vs H beam?
RSJ Steel beams are required to support heavy loads, which is why it’s important to understand which one is right for your project.
A steel beam consists of two horizontal planes, known as flanges, connected by a single vertical plane, known as the web. The web helps to resist against shear forces, whilst the flanges help to resist against bending.
With a steel I beam, also referred to as a universal beam, the height of the web is greater than the width of the flanges and the edges are tapered. This creates a shape that resembles an I when seen from its cross section, hence the name I beam.
A H beam on the other hand, also referred to as a universal column, has a similar web height and flange width. The result is that the steel beam is squarer and looks like a capital H when looking at the cross section.
A H-beam also has a thicker centre web, which means it is often stronger. A steel I-beam often has a thinner centre web, which means it is often not able to take as much force as an h-beam.
Our RSJ Steel Beams – quality, sizes and weight
All our RSJ steel beams are purchased from UK or EU sources and all have CE marked certification to EN10025 - S355JO and come unpainted as standard.
Our steel beam sizes are listed by height in mm (web), width in mm (flange) and weight per metre in kilograms, and we provide in various standard lengths from 1m to 3m.
To calculate the weight of a steel beam or column, multiply the total length of the beam by the weight per metre. The RSJ cost is based on a combination of size, weight and the length required.
