The WQ edge beam is part of NORDEC’s multi-storey building system. It is a symmetric box-profile that supports floor slabs on both sides of the beam
|Edge beam code||H (mm)||B (mm)||c1 (mm)||b (mm)|
WQ beams can be designed as simple single-span, cantilever and continuous beams.
Design standard is Eurocode but country’s local standards can also be applied.
The design curves are intended for pre-design only. They have been drawn in accordance with the standards EN-1993-1-1, EN1993-1-2, EN1993-1-5 and EN1993-1-12. Pre-elevation of the beams has been used to limit permanent load deflection. NORDEC makes the final design taking into account the requirements of each individual project.
