What is an M Beam?

M beams are different than wide flange beams due to the web resisting shear forces. The flanges resist most of the bending movement. Beams have several different types, all with their own uses, pros, and cons. At the basic level, a beam is supported on both ends to help restrain it from rotating.

We have a wide range of miscellaneous beams that contractors may use to support small structures and mechanical work or relieve angles.
