Beams and beamshells are both used for suspended flooring. Beams are typically used as ledges for other forms of precast flooring to sit on, but can also be used as a flooring option in their own right. They are generally manufactured to suit each particular situation and profiles can include Tee-beams, L-beams, Rectangular beams, U-beams and Beamshells. Beams can be either reinforced or prestressed.
