When removing a load-bearing wall, the structural support of the building is removed. Adding a new load-bearing beam holds the weight that the load-bearing wall once provided. Without replacing the load-bearing wall with structural steel, the structure could potentially collapse over time.

Our team of experts carefully remove the load-bearing walls and then replace it with a structural wall support beam. Request a free, quick quote today and one of our steelwork experts will be in contact with you to discuss your project.


What's Involved in Installing an RSJ?

There are many specific steps to installing an RSJ. It involves calculations and expert advice. The following list explains the steps that show how we can supply and install an RSJ for your latest project:

  • We will visit your site for a site inspection to provide project advice and estimate the costs.
  • Do the site preparation and ensure that the site space is protected. Underpin the weight of the wall making sure that any upstairs floor joints, props and side partition walls are supported.
  • Make an incision with strong boys and construction props.
  • Confirm that all wall demolition work has been completed in a safe and secure manner so the RSJ's can be installed correctly.
  • We will then form an internal wall opening between the appointed spaces within the building to secure the outer wall opening.
  • The RSJ will then be fitted in a safe and secure manner. Once the RSJ is fitted, all of the strong boys and construction props will be removed.
  • A full inspection of the site will be completed to ensure that the RSJ fitting follows any building regulations.
