When you project requires more than a single beam or a couple of beams connected together it is refereed to as a steel structure.
From your initial home/extension design you will have had architectural drawings which will then have been passed on to a structural engineer who will advise what steel structure you need to support your build or extension.
All structures will be unique and bespoke to your individual project which is why all our quotations are also bespoke.
These structural engineer’s drawings are what we need for your free quotation. Send them us today!
Steel sections are singular steel beams or columns that provide structural stability for building work. usually referred to as ‘RSJ’s’, ‘I-Beams’ or ‘Lintels’. They can be used individually to provide support when taking out a wall or putting in an additional window or door can be used in conjunction to once another creating a ‘structure’.
We are happy to provide individual sections or several sections as a structure, and can provide both on a 48 hour turn around from agreed sizes or drawings!
Connections are structural elements used for joining different members of a structural steel frame work in different ways.
The main connections we have listed here with explanations of their uses.

I sent all my drawings over for my side/back and loft extension and I received a quote the same day and Steels Direct could not be beaten on cost. They delivered as promised and the professional service and communication from Jodi was fantastic along with there delivery drivers. I would throughly recommend them.
Great professional advice and customer service (quite rare it seems in the building trade these days!). Steels manufactured and delivered quickly.
My husband purchased 127x76 U/B. He was very pleased with materials provided, he changed the lengths for cutting 3 times which was accommodated with no issues. He was kept fully informed of progress and from a personal point he would like to thank Jodi for being so helpful and going above and beyond of what was asked of her. Would definitely use this company again.
New to ordering steels for a loft conversion, I found Steels Direct very helpful, friendly and the service was 5 star. Thank you for all your help.
Excellent service, delivered exactly what I wanted, couldn't fault a thing. Jodi was first class and a real credit to the company. Mark J
