What Separates the I Beam from Others
Dimensions of Beams:
To understand why stainless steel I beams receive the names they do, we need to explain the dimensions of the beams briefly. The way the beams are designed is by welding flat pieces of metal atop the strong supportive center. The center is called the web because it keeps the two flat pieces (the flange) together. This allows both mobility and stability, especially in moving strain.
Web: The web is the center of the beam and is usually graded by thickness. It is the connecting steel that maintains the beams integrity. It connects the two flanges together and helps disperse pressure.
Flange: The top and flat bottom pieces of steel that receive the brunt of the force. The flanges are flattened and dissipate pressure equally. The two piece run parallel to each other and in the case of I beams, are winged.
The Strengths of the I Beams
The most common beam in our inventory, the I beam’s center web can only be rolled as much as a mill’s equipment can handle (5/8″). The I beam is lighter in weight which is why it is used so often. The I beam is also a solid piece of metal throughout. It is rolled and manufactured from one part. We supply laser fused or hot rolled I beams.

Stainless Shapes is very knowledgeable when it comes to supplying I beams. Feel free to call or e-mails us for more info. With 304 and 316 being the most common grades, I beams are becoming much more popular in the industry for their corrosion resistance, strength, and shape like most steel profiles. The horizontal elements of the “I” are known as flanges, while the vertical element is termed the “web.” I beams are usually made of 304 and 316 stainless steel and are most commonly used in construction and civil engineering projects.
