By using HI-LITE Aluminum Beams and Stringers in all your projects, you can reduce both labour and material costs – in significant amount.
- Eliminate up to 1/3 of the horizontal members and as much as ½ of the vertical supports, using aluminum beams instead of wooden ones.
- Reduced weight of each beam combined with fewer structural members minimizes worker strain. Lower worker fatigue means higher worker efficiency and lower costs.
- The greater the shoring height, the more these advantages benefit you.
Wider flanges resist overturning. Fewer accidents and injuries mean less employee downtime and lower insurance costs.
HI-LITE Beams are made from high grade structural alloy 6351-T6, which has grater strength than 6061-T6 alloy. Reinforced side flanges resist bending and retain beam clips. Employees spend less time repairing and more time working.
Bevels on T-bolt slots provide for fast alignment of T-bolt components. Rapid assembly moves the project ahead, overcomes unforeseen delays quickly.
Wood and plastic insert allows for nailing or screwing down plywood decking. Hollow beams are designed to allow 2x4 and 2x6 wood members to be inserted in order to extend the length of the beam. Less subject to damage. Re-usable. It all adds up to less inventory, less storage, lower transportation cost, and lower carrying costs.
Aluminum Beam Clip12mm (1/2") T-bolt slots provide for easy fastening of beams and stringers to their supports or to each other. Your workers will be more productive and the lower labour costs will be reflected in your bottom line.
HI-LITE Aluminum Beams have many other advantages over competing beams. Our designs save time on the job and reduce maintenance. Please refer to our load charts for capacities. Generally speaking, HI-LITE beams carry more load and usually cost less.
Note: All beams are available in standard lengths of 8’, 9’ 10’, 10’-6”, 12’, 14’, 16’, 18’, 20’ and 21’ with plastic or wood insert.
All beams can be specially ordered in almost any length, up to 12 meters (39 feet) to suit the inside dimensions of an ocean-going container, or even longer if this is not a restriction.
