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® and all other EFCO products.
Replace Lumbar with the E-BEAM®
The EFCO E-BEAMs® are an ideal replacement for lumber and are the economical choice for loose deck forming. This system does not require a wood nailer strip and plywood can be nailed directly to the lightweight steel E-BEAM. If a flat head, black, case hardened, or 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.
Support Plywood in Wall and Deck Forming
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.
