Carbon Structural Steel Shapes - Angle, Beam, Channel, Tee
Carbon steel structural shapes are ideal for construction where high strength is required but low luster is not an issue. Our stock of Carbon structural steel includes a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
About Carbon Structural Steel Shape
Carbon Structural Steel Angles
Carbon steel angle is hot rolled steel or high strength low alloy steel bars shaped to a 90 degree ‘L’ shaped bar. The sides or legs of the “L” may be equal or unequal. Other names for carbon steel angle are angle irons or steel angle bars. Structural steel angle shapes are often used in applications that aid in improving rigidity and good resistance to bending in any direction. You will find carbon steel angles in heavy-duty construction like bridges, warehouses, cable towers, and buildings. Carbon steel angle is also found in lighter items including bed frames, chairs, benches, and other furniture.
Alro stocks steel angles in the following grades: A-36 Steel Angle, A-36 Galvanized Steel Angle, and A-36 P&O Steel Angle.
Carbon Structural Steel Channel
Structural carbon steel channel refers to the shape; a squared-off C. Types of channel include C Purlin which has a straight back with sides that have an inner-facing lip. Unistrut channel has holes or perforations to allow for bolting. Some channel has a slight ridge on the back for more rigidity. Channel is primarily used as a stud, replacing wood in steel structures. The benefits of structural steel channel over wood studs are greater weight-bearing capacity and improved rigidity without increasing weight.
Alro stocks carbon structural steel channels in the following grades: A-36 Steel Channel, A-36 Galvanized Steel Channel, A-36/A572-50 Steel Channel, and A992/A572-50 Steel Channel.
Carbon Structural Steel Beam
Structural Steel Beams come in I-Beam, W-Beam, and H-Beam. All are designed to span an area for support in construction. The shape of a bean affects the overall strength and weight. W or Wide Flange Beams have a broad flange on either side of the web. They are the most common due to their proven ability to withstand shear loads and bending. Alro stocks carbon steel grade 1045 beam, ASTM A992 (A572 Grade 50), and A529-50 Structural Beam
Carbon Structural Steel Tee Bars
Carbon steel Tee bars, also known as Tee beams or Tee bars are hot-rolled “T” shaped steel bars known for their strength and durability. The “T” shape is ideal for large load-bearing applications and is primarily used in the construction industry to reinforce concrete, wood, or other metals. Alro stocks A-36 steel Tee bars Tee bars in a variety of flange sizes and stem thicknesses.
