Concrete floor beams are structural elements used to support the weight of a floor. They provide the strength and stability to distribute loads and ensure the structural integrity of a building. They also distribute loads like furniture, people, or equipment effectively and provide lateral stability to the structure.
Usually, these beams are made from reenforced concrete which combines the compressive strength of concrete with the tensile strength of steel reinforcement bars. Beams must be the right size for the job. The size of beam you need depends on many factors including loads, span length and structural engineering principles.
All floor beams are heavy and can be difficult and time consuming to handle and transport. For added convenience, Bradfords can deliver these and other building materials directly to your home or site.
