Custom beams made of stainless steel are replacing carbon steel beams more and more. That is because of their many positive features and therefore the many possible applications.
Stainless Structurals America carries a large inventory of stainless steel beams. This includes hot-rolled S-beams and both S-beams and W-beams in laser fused, non-tapered. With our laser fusion process we have the ability to replicate all of the standard carbon beam profiles out of stainless steel in 304/L, 316/L, 409, 310S, 317 and many other stainless alloys. We also can produce stainless steel custom beams with the ability to alter the alloy, height, width, length, and finish. We can even add slots or holes. From 3 inch beam to 24” beam or larger, the options for your design using stainless steel beams are vast.
Stainless Steel Custom Beams Benefit
Many engineers and design-build firms are switching from carbon steel beams to stainless steel beams for their projects. Stainless Structurals makes this possible by providing these carbon profiles in stainless steel. The benefits of using stainless steel in your design are many. Not only is stainless aesthetically pleasing but it has many functional properties as well. These properties include excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility and strength, clean surface finish, excellent high and low temperature properties, life cycle cost benefits, and it is 100% recyclable. Why use carbon steel in a structure when you will eventually have to replace it? Stainless steel beams will last a lifetime.
