Beams and columns play a crucial role in the structural integrity and strength of a building. By balancing heavy loads and securely holding structures in place, they are put under impressive amounts of strain, requiring high-quality materials to ensure their reliability and longevity. ArchiPro’s collection of beams and columns features timber, steel and concrete options from the best suppliers in Australia.
General guidelines in Australia recommend a maximum timber beam span of 3.66 metres (12 feet), although this depends on the manufacturer. Some timber types permit a greater span than others, and certain processes reinforce the integrity of the beam. It is best to check with the particular supplier before purchasing.
