Metric Carbon I-Beam HEM – S235JR / S355J2 / EN 10025

The Metric Carbon I-Beam HEM S235JR is a popular selection for steel construction projects prioritizing both efficiency and strength. Made from S235JR grade carbon steel, this I-beam boasts a balance of affordability and performance. The “S235” designation indicates a minimum yield strength of 235 megapascals (MPa), ensuring the material can withstand significant stress without permanent deformation. The “JR” suffix signifies suitability for use at normal temperatures.

What distinguishes HEM beams is their unique flange design. Unlike its close cousin, the HEB beam, HEM beams have narrower flanges compared to their height. This seemingly minor difference translates to several advantages. While sacrificing some load-bearing capacity in one direction, HEM beams excel in applications requiring high bi-directional strength. This makes them ideal for supporting walls, structures exposed to wind loads from multiple directions, or situations where beams experience bending in both directions.

Furthermore, the narrower flanges of HEM beams result in a lighter weight compared to HEB beams of similar height. This weight reduction can be a significant benefit for projects with limitations on overall weight or where efficient material usage is crucial. For instance, lighter beams can translate to reduced foundation requirements or easier transportation during construction.

Similar to other metric I-beams, HEM S235JR comes in a variety of standardized sizes. This allows engineers to select the optimal beam size based on the specific load requirements and weight constraints of a project. The familiar H-shaped profile facilitates efficient welding and bolting connections, ensuring seamless integration into various structural designs. Additionally, standardized dimensions guarantee easy availability and compatibility with other steel components.

In conclusion, HEM S235JR I-beams offer a compelling choice for builders seeking an efficient and versatile solution. Their bi-directional strength, lighter weight, and compatibility with existing steel construction practices make them a valuable asset for a wide range of projects.
