Cambering forms an upwards curve in a linear product relative to its center.  Camber is the amount of deflection induced in the opposite direction of its load. When a beam is subjected to vertical downward loads, it has a tendency of deflecting downwards.  In building construction, adding camber to flooring components prevents bowing or sagging over time and relieves stress on other supporting frames.  Cambered beams can also be found in truck chassis.


Triad Metals’s Cambering process can handle a variety of beam sizes.  We can camber beams 25' and longer, and up to 130# / ft.
