Remson Steel Pty Ltd
Remson Steel have been supplying steel & fabrication services to the housing and construction industries of Perth WA since 1978. We specialise in the production of steel lintels, columns, beams and RHS frames, as well as general steel fabrication services.
Lintels are used in construction for structural support. Usually used above windows and doors, lintels support the weight of the building above by transferring weight to side supports. Remson Steel provides high quality steel lintels that will protect windows & doors from flexing or warping under building weight.
To find out more, speak with one of our helpful sales staff at our convenient location, near the Hutton Street freeway exit, Osborne Park – or call today! We welcome all enquiries from both the general public and residential builders across Perth.

WE MANUFACTURE STEEL LINTELS IN PERTH
Lintels are a critical architectural support structure used to support loads over openings such as windows and doors. Weight exerted above the opening is transferred to side supports for a more even distribution of weight. As such, well-made steel lintels protect doors and windows and prevent them from flexing or warping under the building’s weight.
If you need to source steel lintels for an upcoming construction project in Western Australia, Remson Steel can produce the materials that you require according to your precise specifications. As a metal fabricator in Perth with nearly four decades of experience, we are more than qualified to design and manufacture the lintels and other steel support structures required to complete your project. Contact our team by calling (08) 9446 8800 for more detailed information or to arrange a quote.
SUPPORT BEAMS FROM THE LEADING METAL FABRICATOR IN PERTH
We are equipped to provide our Perth-area clients with steel support beams suitable for a wide variety of applications. Thanks to our state-of- the-art fabrication facilities, we can customise each order to ensure that our clients’ precise needs and specifications can be accommodated. These are a few of the most common types of beams that we manufacture:
PARALLEL FLANGE CHANNEL (PFC)
Also known as ‘channels’, these C-shaped beams are much taller than they are wide. Channels are usually preferred when the beam is going to be in plain view. This includes a variety of applications, including support structures used in entry porticos, carports, canopies and alfresco areas. PFCs are also recommended when an internal beam is going to be enclosed in timber.
UNIVERSAL BEAM (UB)
UBs are higher than they are wide, and they are typically oriented in a horizontal direction. Depending on where you operate, you may also hear this beam referred to as a rolled steel joist (RSJ) or an I-beam. Several special considerations have to be taken into account when manufacturing UBs. To begin with, most now have flanges of uniform thickness (this wasn’t always the case), though certain beam sizes are still fabricated with a tapered flange.
UNIVERSAL COLUMN (UC)
A universal column has equal width and height dimensions. This makes them heavier (and therefore more expensive) than universal beams that are the same height. In most applications, UCs are oriented vertically. However, architects in the housing industry generally prefer to orient them horizontally in order to achieve maximum strength. This is also an option when height restrictions are in place. Most notably, UCs are positioned horizontally when headroom is an issue.
If you are sourcing support beams for a construction project in Western Australia, please contact our team to find out how we can accommodate your needs. You won’t find a more efficient or reliable metal fabrication company in Perth.

Protective Coating for Metal Fabrication in Australia
After manufacturing steel beams according to your required specifications, we can also provide a protective coating that prevents corrosion and ensures that your steel maintains its structural appearance and integrity over time. The following is a list of the major types of finishes that we can apply to our steel beams:
INORGANIC ZINC SILICATE
This type of finishing is often referred to as ‘Dimet’. It is created by using a paint with a high zinc content that is applied to the surface of the steel. However, before the Dimet is applied, the steel is sandblasted in order to completely strip it and clean it of any imperfections or contaminants. Shortly after the sandblasting is complete, the paint is applied to ensure that it is able to completely adhere to the steel’s surface. We follow all industry standards and regulations, including the Australian building code requiring a paint thickness of at least 75 microns.
Working with high-quality steel makes any construction job easier, and that’s exactly what Duragal helps to accomplish. This galvanised coating is applied to the outer surface of the steel tube during the manufacturing process. The result is a smooth and extremely thin galvanised coat (100 grams per square metre) that is appropriate for situations in which a
medium level of protection is required. This coating is particularly well-suited for applications in which the steel will be painted, but it may not be suitable when the steel is going to be subject to a high level of moisture.
This is another galvanised coating similar to Duragal that is also applied during the manufacturing process. As with Duragal, the resulting coat measures 100 grams per square metre. The fundamental difference is that Supagal is applied to the inside of the steel tube as well as to the outside. This provides an extra layer of protection for the steel in question. However, this Supagal is still not recommended when the steel needs to withstand environmental moisture.
HOT-DIP GALVANISED TREATMENT
In this form of galvanisation, the steel is immersed into an acid bath to remove any scale and rust that may have accumulated on the surface. After this, it is immersed in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of roughly 450°C. When removed from the bath, the zinc reacts with oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to produce a layer of zinc carbonate on the metal’s surface.
This galvanised layer of protection can be applied at the following thicknesses:
- 3 mm (equal to 300 grams per square metre)
- 3-6 mm (equal to 450 grams per square metre)
- 6 mm and over (equal to at least 600 grams per square metre)
The Duplex epoxy finish begins with an acid bath and then proceeds with a hot dip galvanisation to a thickness of 600 grams per square metre. After this is complete, the metal is sent to painters who sandblast the surface and then apply etching primer. After this comes a coat of zinc phosphate – which is applied to a thickness of 75 microns – followed by a double coat of micaceous iron oxide to a total thickness of 100 microns. Various colours can also be achieved through an additional coat of paint. These epoxy coats are highly resistant to corrosion (much more so than standard galvanised steel), which makes them especially
well-suited to seaside locations where the elements are harsher. It is worth noting that the epoxy coats chip away relatively easily, so careful handling is required when transporting and building with this type of steel in Perth.
This is probably one of the best-known types of finishes used for structural steel fabrication in Perth. In this case, a free-flowing dry powder is applied to the metal. We make use of an electrostatic process, which allows for a thorough coating without the need of a solvent to keep the binder and filler constituents in liquid form. After the powder coating has been applied, the steel is cured under high temperature, during which time the coating merges and solidifies into a type of ‘skin’. For external coats, the process begins with a zinc primer – though this is not necessary for internal surfaces. Powder coating can also be used over a galvanised surface, in which case a zinc primer is also necessary to maintain a clean appearance.
