Galintel J-Bar Steel Shelf Beam from Nepean

the block sky high

Galintel® J-Bar* Shelf Beam - The Galintel® J-Bar* Shelf Beam is the ideal solution for cavity walls, either double brick, or brick veneer with timber trusses.

The J-Bar* was developed in response to demand from builders for an economical substitute for built-up steel sections such as parallel flange channel and plate.

Similar to a T-Bar but with a special top flange incorporated into the upright section, the Galintel® J-Bar* provides an off-the shelf solution for cavity walls and is hot-dip galvanised, fully engineered and university tested.

Available from accredited Galintel® distributors, the J-Bar* is a convenient alternative to custom-made beams such as PFC and flat plate, which have to be fabricated and galvanised.

As with all quality Galintel® products, the J-Bar* Shelf Beam is provided with a full product warranty and safe load tables.

The Galintel® brand is your guarantee of quality, performance and code compliance. For full technical details, phone 1800 065 634 or email: bi@nepean.com.au
