Above is a sketch of a typical application for this beam. This is a sectional view through part of a wall that is supported by a beam, either steel or timber on dead shores or props. This would be done say if underpinning work was to be done on the foundations. This system takes the load off the wall and spreads it to either side
Note! steel is by far the material of choice for this application because of it's strength, but the steel beam should always have a timber packer between it and the masonry. This provides a cushioning effect and to give some "grip".
