Structural Steel

Steel Searcher Strcture steel is a bar-shaped steel with a certain cross-sectional shape and size, and is one of the four major varieties of steel (plate, tube, profile, wire). According to the section shape, the section steel is divided into simple section section steel and complex section section steel (special section steel). The former refers to square steel, round steel, flat steel, angle steel, hexagonal steel, etc.; the latter refers to I-beam, channel steel, rail, window frame steel, curved steel, etc.

Types of Structural Steel

Structural Steel
H Beam
Steel Searcher H-beam is an economical section and high-efficiency profile with more optimized cross-sectional area distribution and more reasonable strength-to-weight ratio.
Channel/U Beam
Steel Searcher Channel/U Beam is a long strip of steel with a groove-shaped cross-section. It is a carbon structural steel for construction and machinery.
Angle Bar
Steel Searcher Angle iron, commonly known as angle iron, is a long strip of steel with two sides perpendicular to each other.
I Beam
Steel Searcher I-beam, also known as steel beam (English name Universal Beam), is a long strip of steel with an I-shaped section.

Advantages of STEEL SEARCHER Structural Steel

H-beam Characteristics

The hot-rolled H-beam reasonably distributes the aspect ratio of the section size according to different uses, and has excellent mechanical properties and superior performance.

Angle Steel Characteristics

Commonly known as angle iron, it is a long strip of steel with two sides perpendicular to each other. There are equilateral angle steel and unequal angle steel.

Channel Steel Characteristics

It is a long strip of steel with a groove-shaped section. The specification representation method, such as 120*53*5, means a channel steel with a waist height of 120 mm, a leg width of 53 mm, and a waist thickness of 5 mm, or 12# channel steel.


It can also be distinguished by the shape. The cross-section of the I-beam is in the shape of "I", while the cross-section of the H-beam is similar to the letter "H".


Due to the small thickness of the I-beam, carefully observe that the flange of the I-beam is narrow, and the closer it is to the web, the thicker it is, so it can only bear the force from one direction. The thickness of the H-beam is larger, and the thickness of the flange is equal. , so it can withstand forces in different directions.


I-beam is suitable for use in various buildings, and the application range of bending members in the plane is very limited. H-beams are used for beams, column members in industrial and civil building steel structures, steel structure load-bearing brackets for industrial structures, etc.


The H-beam strapping machine is a special rolling mill, while the I-beam flange has the same thickness and has a rolling section, and the combined section is composed of 3 welded plates.
