OCTOGONAL - Castellated beams with octogonal openings
Castellated beams with octagonal openings
The dimensions of the castellated beams are variable
Execution of the welds according to design
According to EN 10163-3: 2004, class C, subclass 1
Castellated beams offer users flexibility, reduced weight, space and aesthetics, while lowering costs.
Castellated beams are made from hotrolled H-sections that are cut following a special pattern. The two resulting Tpieces are then reformed by welding.
This technique is used to produce:
- beams with circular, hexagonal or octagonal openings,
- cambered beams,
- asymmetric sections for composite applications, and to insert additional flats between the T-pieces for even deeper sections.
Roof and slab structures constitute the main application for castellated beams.
