Beams are typically considered structural components and are made in one of three key shapes:

  • Rectangular
  • Inverted Tee Beams
  • L-Beams

Beams are horizontal components that support deck members like double tees, hollow-core, solid slabs, and sometimes other beams. They can be reinforced with either prestressing strand or conventional reinforcing bars. This will depend on the spans,loading conditions, and the production method.
