Universal beams, also known as I-beams or H-beams, come in various sizes and have a wide range of uses in construction and engineering projects. Here are some common sizes and their applications:

  1. Sizes:
    • Universal beams are available in various depths (heights) and weights per meter. Common depths range from 127mm to 914mm, and weights per meter can range from 13.2 kg/m to 219 kg/m, depending on the specific requirements of the project.
  2. Uses:
    • Structural Support: Universal beams are commonly used as load-bearing elements in buildings, bridges, and other structures. They provide support for floors, roofs, walls, and various structural components.
    • Building Frames: They are essential components in building frames, including columns, beams, and roof trusses, contributing to the overall stability and integrity of the structure.
    • Bridges and Infrastructure: Universal beams are utilized in the construction of bridges, walkways, and other infrastructure projects due to their ability to span long distances while supporting heavy loads.
    • Industrial Applications: They are used in industrial settings for supporting machinery, conveyor systems, and other equipment due to their strength and load-bearing capacity.

Overall, universal beams are valued for their versatility, strength, and ability to withstand heavy loads, making them indispensable components in various construction and engineering applications.
