Howarth Timber Engineered Solutions understand that in an ever changing construction industry where regulation, legislation and technology impact to create confusion and uncertainty, there is a need for innovation and simplification of the construction process. As one of the first businesses to introduce engineered timber products into the UK, we are extremely proud of the design and engineering that has goes into our I beam.
The I beam is a professionally designed and engineered composite timber product manufactured within a quality assured process. As with all HTES products the supply chain is managed to ensure consistent quality and sustainability credentials. This ensures that the frequency of naturally occurring defects, which can impair the performance of solid timber products, is reduced.
The resulting structural timber I beam can be produced in a range of depths and spans to suit domestic and commercial applications. As an engineered composite, the beam dimensions are not restricted by the available dimensions of natural sawn timber. The high strength to low weight ratio of the I beam enables larger beams to be readily transported and handled on site.
Although the I beam can be incorporated in a range of fabricated assemblies, it is also sufficiently lightweight, can be readily cut and installed using conventional construction techniques. All round a highly flexible and adaptable product.
