Steel and Aluminum H-Beams and I-Beams
Beams come in 2 basic shapes and many sizes.
I or standard beams resemble a capital “I” and are tapered on the inside, designed primarily to hang weight below the beam, for example to run a trolley on.
H or wide flange beams resemble a capital “H” on its side and are square on the inside, designed primarily for supporting weight from above the beam, for example supporting the upper floors of a house or other structure.
