Bushwick Metals stocks three grades of structural-steel beams in a vast range of sizes and profiles that can be used for a variety of general construction applications. We source our steel from all over the world to ensure our customers have access to the highest-quality structural materials, and our customers rely on their strength and load-bearing capabilities to build bridges, buildings, parking garages, and more. Our vast inventory includes Wide Flange & H Beams, HP Shape Beams, I Beams, and Junior Beams.
All structural-steel beams arrive ready for use on-site and are appropriate for use in general structural applications in which the beam is riveted, bolted, or welded. Because we keep one of the industry’s most extensive ranges of structural-steel beams in stock, our customers are able to better manage their inventory requirements, supply chain logistics, and storage costs. When you need structural-steel beams, call Bushwick Metals and we’ll move mountains to get them to you by tomorrow!
A992/A572-50: A high-strength, low-alloy structural steel alloy, this hot-rolled structural steel is the most commonly used steel material in construction applications. Dual certified to A572 Grade 50, this grade includes a mixture of columbium and vanadium, which improves strength and enhances weldability. With a minimum yield of 50 ksi and a minimum tensile strength of 65 ksi, this grade of steel is useful wherever high corrosion resistance is required and when weight reduction will translate to cost savings.
A588: A high-strength, low-alloy structural steel alloy, this is a copper-bearing steel that offers a minimum yield of 50 ksi, a minimum tensile strength of 70 ksi, and has approximately two to four times the corrosion resistance of carbon steel without copper, so it does not require painting, even when used in applications exposed to outdoor conditions. A588 structural-steel beams can be used whenever a cost savings from a weight reduction can be gained or when there are concerns about atmospheric corrosion.
A36: A low-carbon hot-rolled steel that’s widely used in general structural applications and offers excellent weldability and machinability, A36 is produced to mechanical properties offering a minimum yield of 36 ksi and a minimum tensile strength of 58 ksi. An affordable mild steel, its ductility makes highly useful for buildings and bridges. A36 is available as a special order from the mill.
