Carbon steel long products
Standardized steel beams are produced with hot rolling of steel into different profiles, or cross-sections. The most common standardized profiles are the H-, I- and U-profiles with their different sub variants. The BE Group assortment of beams include HEA-, HEB-, IPE-, UNP and UPE-beams. Steel beams can be produced in different steel grades, with different mechanical properties, where the low-carbon and weldable constructional steel grades S235JR and S355J2 are the most common ones.
Steel beams are primarily used within the construction industry for load-bearing structures. However, beams also find their application in machines, vehicles and other equipment. The products are characterized by having high axial and bending stiffness.
Merchant bars, or steel bars consist of a variety of standardized Carbon steel long products with different profiles, or cross sections. The most common standard profiles are flats, squares, rounds, angles, T- and U-bars. Merchant bars are produced by hot rolling of steel billets into the requested profile and dimension. Merchant bars can be produced in different steel grades, with different mechanical properties, where the low-carbon and weldable constructional steel grades S235JR and S355J2 are the most common ones.
Merchant bars are widely used within construction industry and mechanical engineering. The different profiles are used in load-bearing structures, buildings, infrastructure and within the manufacturing industry as parts of machines, vehicles and other equipment in an almost infinitive number of uses.
