RSJ Installations in Surrey for your Home
RSJs, also known as I-beams or universal beams, are structural steel beams with an "I" or "H" shape. They are manufactured by rolling or extruding steel into the desired shape, resulting in a beam that is strong, durable, and capable of withstanding heavy loads. RSJs are commonly used in construction due to their excellent load-bearing capabilities and versatility.
RSJs are widely used in constructing load-bearing walls, floors, and roofs. Their high strength-to-weight ratio makes them ideal for supporting heavy loads and transferring them safely to the foundation.
RSJs are employed when altering or expanding existing structures. They provide additional support and stability, allowing for the removal of load-bearing walls or the creation of open-plan spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions
A steel beam, often referred to as an RSJ (Rolled Steel Joist) or an I-beam, is a structural component made of steel. It is commonly used in construction to provide support and stability to structures, such as buildings and bridges, by carrying heavy loads and distributing them safely.
Steel beam installation is necessary when a structure requires additional support or when load-bearing walls need to be removed to create open spaces. It is also used in building extensions, mezzanine floors, and roof support systems.
The size and type of steel beam are determined by factors such as the span it needs to cover, the load it will bear, and the architectural design of the building. Structural engineers and architects collaborate to specify the appropriate beam size and type based on these factors.
Steel beam installation typically involves the following steps:
a. Site Assessment: A structural engineer assesses the site to determine the load requirements and design specifications.
b. Fabrication: Custom steel beams are fabricated according to the project’s specifications.
c. Preparing the Site: The area where the beam will be installed is prepared, which may involve removing existing structural elements.
d. Installation: The steel beam is hoisted into place and secured using bolts or welding, ensuring it is level and properly supported.
e. Inspection: The installation is inspected to ensure it meets safety and building code standards.
To ensure safety and quality, it is essential to hire experienced professionals, including structural engineers and certified steel beam installers. Additionally, adherence to local building codes and regulations is crucial to meet safety standards.
No, steel beam installation is not limited to large-scale projects. It is used in a wide range of construction projects, from residential home renovations and extensions to commercial buildings. The size and type of the beam vary based on the project’s specific needs.
Yes, load-bearing walls can be replaced with steel beams to create open-concept designs. This process involves careful planning and structural engineering to ensure the load is properly supported and distributed.
Steel beams offer several advantages, including high strength, durability, versatility, and the ability to create large, open spaces without the need for numerous support columns. They are also fire-resistant and have a long lifespan.
The cost of steel beam installation varies widely based on factors like beam size, project complexity, location, and labor costs. To get an accurate estimate, it’s recommended to consult with structural engineers and construction professionals who can provide a detailed quote based on your specific project requirements.
Steel beams are relatively low-maintenance. Regular inspections for signs of corrosion or damage are recommended. Depending on the environment, applying protective coatings may be necessary to prevent rust. It’s best to consult with professionals for maintenance guidelines specific to your location and conditions.
