ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock a broad range of angle iron, also known as L-shaped cross-sections. These are steel bars in the shape of an angle with equal or unequal sides.
Angles can be applied as braces to reinforce structures from the outside by increasing overall stress tolerance, but may also be used in sets of two or four to form the main members of a building framework or “skeleton”.
ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock a broad range of beams which are designed to support horizontal loading across their axis and are therefore much deeper than they are wide in order to prevent bending.
The most common beam in construction is the I-beam, also known as a universal beam – a steel member with an I or H-shaped cross-section. I-beams have a strong centre for vertical support, along with flanges on either side to provide strength in the horizontal plane. They may be used on their own or cast in concrete.
ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock a broad range of channels which can be hot-rolled or cold-rolled.
Channels are typically used as braces along building frames for added reinforcement. It can also be used in carports as support beams and in truck and trailer body building for reinforcement. Roof trusses also applies channels in their structures.
ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock a broad range of steel bars. Square and round bar are typically used to brace light structures, while flat bar is commonly used in fabrication.
ASAP Steel & Pipe offers mild steel flat bar and flat bar. We also offer non-standard thicknesses for all applications including trellis doors, burglar proofing, grating, and engineering applications.
Cut-to-length services are available, depending on the application. We can also accommodate any guillotine requirements.
ASAP Steel & Pipe’s branches stocks round bar, square bar and drilled rails.
Solid round and square bar steel is widely used in general fabrication, industrial maintenance, agricultural applications, transportation equipment, ornamental and decorative ironmongery, security applications and construction projects.
ASAP Steel & Pipe branches stock mild steel square and round bars and reinforcing HT round bar and drilled rails.
ASAP Steel and Pipe’s branches stocks steel columns and sections.
Columns are designed to support vertical loading down their length and are almost square in cross-section (with the width similar to the depth) in order to prevent twisting.
ASAP Steel & Pipe supplies various sections that may be used as a column, including channels, angles, I-beams and universal columns – the latter proving the most effective.
