|E BEAM HD TM
The E-Beam HD has the identical qualities as the original E-Beam, but with increased strength
Compared to uninsulated steel-framed box headers, E-Beams TM provide dry insulation and vastly better thermal resistance..
Architects, Engineers, and Owners often assume that box headers are insulated. They often are not due to the logistics and scheduling of construction trades. Pre-insulated E-Beam TM has a heat retaining value of R 24 for a 6-inch wall while a typical uninsulated box header has an R value of close to zero.
Built from high quality galvanized steel channels, E Beam TM has superior strength to typical steel box headers. The insulation foam helps transfer wind load so the front and back channels work as a composite section, gaining strength and rigidity over the empty steel configuration of a traditional box header.
MOLD & MILDEW RESISTANT
The insulated double steel channel eliminates the possibility of weather-related water damage which may cause warping or promote mildew or mold growth. Polystyrene foam insulation will not absorb water, discouraging growth of mold or mildew.
Made of recycled galvanized steel and recycled foam, E Beam TM meets LEED requirements for recycled material.
E-Beam TM headers can be ordered to exact required dimensions. This saves costly construction time and labor. E-Beams can also be easily cut in the field if dictated by job conditions.
