Re: Steel beam grade?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
No.  Typically the material is provided to the fabricator with mill
certifications indicating grade and composition.  Material certification
records are maintained by the fabricator for review (in the ideal world).

As a side note, wood framing does not necessarily have grade stamps either.
Once the initial elements are cut.

have an A36 or a W16x57 right on the web or flange?
