What Do We Do?

Here are the services we offer as a steel beam Manchester fabricator: 

Section Types & Sizes

We offer the following section types: 

  • UC 
  • UB 
  • PFC
  • CHS
  • SHS
  • RHS
  • Flat
  • RSA-E
  • RSA-U

Steel beams are typically shown on the structural engineer’s drawings using a thick, dashed line with a beam description next to it. In most cases, the steelwork shown is the steelwork at ceiling level for that specific drawing (the steelwork shown on the first floor is the steelwork above the head when standing on the first floor). 

You can find the steel sizes on our “Sections Types & Sizes” page. Head to the bottom of the page and choose the type of steel you’re interested in. Click “Download,” and you’ll be given a small spreadsheet with the relevant information. 


As a steel beam Manchester fabricator, we also offer bespoke structures, and we understand that each building is unique. Each structure has many elements that differentiate it from other buildings. For instance, the number of stories supported, the spans, and any existing layout must be considered. It may also be necessary to consider a new layout that is required for the structure.

We offer the following structure types:



This is a structure made of two members connected at right angles. 


Goal Post

The goal post is often used when opening the rear of a house, as the structure is made of two columns and a top beam. These can be used if there is no party wall in place. 


Cranked Shaped Steel Work

The double-cranked beam is a support from a main beam. This structure is used when more floors are added to an existing building.


Double Goal Post with Cross Beam

This type of structure is used when two parallel walls are removed.


Two Beams with Tie Beam

A structure of this kind is usually used when extending a house. 


Goal Post with Cross Beam

The goal post with a cross beam is often used when creating openings for bi-folding doors. The beam supports a wall or existing timber joints. 


Fabricated Beams

We also supply a wide range of steel sections for house extensions. We can fabricate and deliver within 24 to 48 hours, and we deliver across the UK.

As a steel supplies Manchester company, we can supply a wide range of steel sections for house extensions. We’re able to fabricate and deliver them within 24-48 hours. And we offer delivery nationwide. 


Connections are structural elements used for joining different members of the structural framework. The steel structure includes different sections, such as beams, columns, rafters, etc. These connections are an essential part of the steel structures and are designed more conventionally than individual members. 

Mezzanine Floors

We also design mezzanine floors and are proud to offer one of the most efficient sales processes in the UK. Our team is ready to reduce your stress and take complete control of the design of your new mezzanine floor. 

At Elite Portal Frames, we also have a talented installation team ready to provide you with the right advice and guidance on the right mezzanine design for you. In addition, each mezzanine we create is a bespoke floor design made to your exact requirements. We work with you until you’re fully satisfied with the end product. 

Once we’ve surveyed your premises, we set to work on the design’s appearance and the layout of your mezzanine floor using the latest CAD technology. You can get in touch with us to learn more about our design process!
