The Vertebeam portal frame solution promotes NZ-made products and presents the market with a genuine, quality alternative to imported hot rolled beams. Vertebeam offers a more robust design solution (compared to cold formed sections) for medium-span buildings, and a solution that is lighter than hot rolled sections. They also offer a variety of other benefits, not the least of which is the more elegant finish they lend to a project.

Key Features
  • Birdproof:  The flush layout of beams, girts and rafters makes a building constructed with Vertebeam virtually vermin-proof. This has significant appeal for businesses operating in the food, storage and manufacturing fields.
  • Innovative Design: Utilising nested cold formed box sections provides excellent torsional stiffness and spanning capability. The design methodology for Vertebeam has been verified by the Heavy Engineering Research Association, so you can have full confidence in the system.
  • Cost savings: Vertebeam uses plate stock extremely efficiently to reduce steel wastage. Fabrication painting costs are also significantly reduced, when compared to I sections, due to the simplified external geometry and smaller surface area.

Steltech custom design and manufacture beams to create optimised steel structures.
