Construction Beam Applications

E-BEAM® is ideal for many construction beam applications like truss systems or wall forming systems. The E-BEAM can also be used in combination with the EFCO SUPER STUD® along with all other EFCO products.


Loose Deck Forming System

EFCO E-BEAMS® are an ideal replacement for lumber and is the economical choice for loose deck forming.

E-BEAM ® does not require a wood nailer strip. Plywood can be nailed directly to the lightweight steel E-BEAM. If a flat head, black, case hardened, self-tapping screw is selected for the E-BEAM connection, tapping into the EFCO steel E-BEAM will normally hold substantially more than screws into a 2 x 2 wood nailer strip. The plywood to E-BEAM connection will deliver a superior connection when compared to other systems and result in less labor and faster job progress.

The EFCO E-BEAM® is a galvanized steel beam designed as a structural member to support plywood in both wall and deck concrete forming applications. This construction beam gives you maximum strength, durability and versatility at less weight and cost than aluminum.
