At Elite Portal Frames Ltd , we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive range of steel beams to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Our extensive inventory ensures that whether you are working on a small residential project or a large commercial development, we have the right steel beams for you. Here’s a detailed look at the various sections we supply:

1. I-Beams (Universal Beams)

I-Beams, also known as Universal Beams (UB), are one of the most commonly used sections in construction. Their I-shaped cross-section provides excellent strength and load-bearing capacity, making them ideal for supporting floors and walls in buildings.

  • Sizes: Available in a variety of sizes, from lightweight to heavy-duty options.
  • Applications: Residential buildings, commercial structures, and bridges.

2. H-Beams (Universal Columns)

H-Beams, or Universal Columns (UC), are similar to I-Beams but have wider flanges. This design offers greater structural stability and load distribution, making them suitable for columns and other vertical applications.

  • Sizes: Extensive size range to cater to different structural requirements.
  • Applications: Vertical supports in buildings, pylons, and columns in multi-story buildings.

3. T-Beams

T-Beams feature a T-shaped cross-section and are primarily used in floor construction. They provide a practical solution for supporting concrete slabs and reducing the need for additional framework.

  • Sizes: Customizable sizes based on project specifications.
  • Applications: Floor joists, bridge decks, and industrial flooring.

4. C-Channels (C-Sections)

C-Channels, or C-Sections, have a C-shaped cross-section and are versatile structural components. They are often used as supports in steel-framed buildings and as frames for machinery and equipment.

  • Sizes: Available in various dimensions to suit different structural needs.
  • Applications: Roof purlins, wall girts, and equipment frames.

5. L-Angles (Angle Beams)

L-Angles, also known as Angle Beams, have an L-shaped cross-section and are used in various structural applications. They provide support and reinforcement, particularly in frameworks and bracing systems.

  • Sizes: Wide range of lengths and thicknesses available.
  • Applications: Bracing, frameworks, and structural reinforcements.

6. Hollow Structural Sections (HSS)

Hollow Structural Sections (HSS) are tubular sections with a hollow center. They are known for their strength and versatility, making them ideal for both aesthetic and structural purposes.

  • Shapes: Square, rectangular, and circular options.
  • Applications: Structural supports, architectural features, and load-bearing columns.

7. Box Beams

Box Beams consist of four plates welded together to form a rectangular or square cross-section. They offer excellent load-bearing capabilities and are often used in heavy construction projects.

  • Sizes: Custom sizes available based on project needs.
  • Applications: Heavy construction, bridges, and large-scale structural frameworks.
