CMC Steel Products is proud to present the SMARTBEAM®, THE INTELLIGENT ALTERNATIVE long-span floor and roof framing system.
CMC Steel Products is North America's leading castellated and cellular beam manufacturer. Both the cellular (round hole) and castellated (hexagonal hole) beams start with a standard wide flange beam, which is pattern cut in half longitudinally. The two halves are separated, staggered and welded together to form a SMARTBEAM®. The SMARTBEAM® weighs the same as the original beam, but is 30% to 50% stronger and 50% deeper, thus adding structural load capacity and stiffness.
Call today to see how the SMARTBEAM® can bring both cost savings and long-term intrinsic value to your project.
The SMARTBEAM® offers versatility and economy for all types of floor and roof structures. The beams are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight, have superior load/deflection characteristics, and are manufactured from recycled steel.
The SMARTBEAM® is ideally suited for composite floor beams. The most efficient spans for SMARTBEAM® are typically 40 feet or greater (12.2m or greater) for strength design and 30 feet and greater for serviceability design. The most common building types for the SMARTBEAM® are office buildings, parking garages, long span roofs, mezzanines or any structure with a suspended floor. The SMARTBEAM® has superior vibration characteristics and the ability to accommodate mechanical equipment (ductwork, wiring and fire protection), making it an ideal product for any floor construction.
