Welded beams share some of the same advantages as steel beams, like;

  • Cost-effective nature
    • Timber may seem cheaper, but a steel beam will last longer, is more versatile – making it much more cost-effective in the long-run
  • Fire resistant
    • As it is a non-combustible material, it will not change integrally because of fires
  • Sustainability
    • 100% recyclable
    • Beams usually consist of up to 25% of recycled material and is known as one of the easiest materials to reuse
  • Durability
    • Australia has turbulent weather, and you need materials that suit that!
    • Steel has a resistance to wear and tear from our unrelenting environment
    • Enjoy pristine estate regardless of the weather
  • Decreased Weight
    • In comparison to concrete, steel is much lighter thanks to its higher strength and stiff nature
    • Lightness brings about a reduced overall weigh on foundations and bettered ground condition performance

There are additional benefits that welded beams provide;

  • Availability in many sizes
  • Exceeds the Australian and New Zealand standards minimum requirement of AS/NZS 3679.2
  • Heavy duty
  • 20% stronger, improved strength-to-weight ratios
  • Pre-heating is NOT required for welding
  • Faster to use because they’re prefabricated

Welded Beams FAQs

Welded beams are structural components commonly used in construction and engineering. They are created by welding together individual steel plates or sections to form a unified beam. This method offers advantages in terms of strength, customization, and efficiency compared to traditional methods of beam construction.

E beam welding refers to the process of welding an electron beam, while i beam welding refers to the process of welding an I beam. Both methods are used to weld beams, but they have different applications and advantages.

Welded beams come in various types, including:

  • H Beams: H-shaped beams are characterised by their wider flanges, which provide greater strength and stability. The welded H beam is commonly used in structural applications.
  • W Beams: W-shaped beams, also known as “wide flange beams,” are commonly used in applications where weight-bearing capacity is important.
  • T Beams: T-shaped beams are similar to I beams but have a smaller flange width. They are commonly used in building construction and infrastructure projects.
