European Standard IPE Beam Profiles
What is IPE?
IPE beams, also known as “I-beams”or “I-sections,” are structural elements that are shaped like the letter “I.” They are commonly used in construction to support the weight and load-bearing requirements of a structure, such as a building or bridge. IPE beams are available in a range of sizes and shapes, and are classified according to their dimensions and load-bearing capacity.
In Europe, IPE beams are standardized according to the European standard EN 10025. The chart below shows some common dimensions for IPE beams in European profiles:

These dimensions refer to the size of the beam, with the depth being the distance from the top to the bottom of the beam, and the width being the distance from one flange to the other. The flange thickness and web thickness refer to the thickness of the beam’s flanges and web, respectively.
It is important to note that these dimensions and specifications may vary slightly depending on the specific manufacturer and location. It is always best to consult the manufacturer’s documentation or a structural engineer when selecting IPE beams for a construction project.

Type of European Profiles Beam
There are several types of European profiles beams that are commonly used in construction, including:
- IPE beams: Also known as “I-beams” or “I-sections,” these beams are shaped like the letter “I” and are commonly used in construction to support the weight and load-bearing requirements of a structure.
- HEA beams: These beams are also known as “wide flange beams” and are similar in shape to IPE beams, but have wider flanges and a smaller web.
- HEM beams: HEM beams are similar to HEA beams, but have an even wider flange and a smaller web.
- UPN beams: UPN beams, also known as “channels,” are C-shaped beams that are used in construction for their strong lateral stability.
- UNP beams: UNP beams, also known as “double channels,” are similar to UPN beams but have an additional flange on the back side.
- UPE beams: UPE beams are similar in shape to UPN beams, but have a larger flange and a smaller web.
These beams are available in a range of sizes and shapes to suit different load-bearing requirements, and are typically made of structural steel or other strong, durable materials. They are classified according to their dimensions and load-bearing capacity, and are often used in combination with other structural elements, such as columns and girders, to provide stability and support to a structure.
