A Fabsec beam is a cellular beam fabricated out of plate which has been analysed and designed within the FBEAM software and procured from one of our licensed fabricators.  This gives both the specifying engineer and the client the confidence that the beam is designed and produced in accordance with industry leading standards.

Our innovative product range and design software enables clients and their professional teams to achieve enhanced project economy, swifter construction and optimised design.

This is why FABSEC® beams and our revolutionary FBEAM® software is used on prestigious construction projects across the UK.  Our track record of success has been achieved through a clear understanding of structural steelwork engineering demands and commercial realities.  This insight ensures we will continue to lead the industry in thinking through new product development and so enable building owners and their advisers to realise even greater levels of project performance and efficiency.
