Tell our readers about your flagship product Timber H-Beam, their technical attributes, that how they perform better over other products in the market and still are available at best competitive price?
H-Beam is a unique introduction to over come the cumbersome and costly procurement of timber. H-Beam is designed to withstand various loads during construction of various activities.

With contractors having less time to complete the project, a need for formwork systems and H-Beams that are relatively easy to establish and dismantle was felt. So many Construction companies felt the need of the modern formwork system.

To reduce the investment cost, many construction companies’ engineer preferred to go separate way by purchasing Timber H-Beams from one supplier and formwork items from others. In India, there are lots of supplier of formwork items but when it comes to Timber H-Beam there are very few, as there is a need of a proper technical expert in the field of wood.

Nav Nirman Beam Technics with its experience in wood over three decades is the largest supplier of Timber H-Beams in India. Its technical attributes are the members of H-Beam are made up of Densified Ply making the web and flange sections are made up of Pinewood imported from Europe, which makes Timber H Beam stronger and durable.

The flange and web are hot processed by wedge technology that makes a versatile section by which the whole member gives us strong, durable and higher load carrying capacity in various areas of construction Industry.

H-Beam is used in various types of construction like Column box, formwork making, Circular column, wall shuttering making, beam span base support etc.

It is used for the construction of Residential and, commercial projects, Industrial projects, water resources engineering, Roads and Bridges, Stadium and sports building construction.

H-Beams are the primary choice of any Engineer in the formwork activity due to many reasons.

One of the reasons being that the Investment cost on H-Beam is less than Aluminium Beam and also there are cases of Aluminium Beam getting stolen on the site.

Thus H-Beam gives an efficient performance in the execution of the project in a short span of time.
