Stainless steel as a material effectively decreases life cycle costs and offers excellent corrosion resistance as well as freedom from maintenance needs. The durable and sustainable, 100 % recyclable material is a perfect match for various industries needing light-weight, high-strength solutions.
Made of Austenitic, Duplex and Lean Duplex steel grades, stainless steel profiles and beams are built for challenging conditions. For the building and construction industry, their fire resistance properties make them an attractive choice for structures – without a need for coating. In highly corrosive environments, Duplex and Lean Duplex beams and profiles provide superior general corrosion resistance, pitting resistance and intergranular corrosion resistance.
Qinghe Steel stainless beams are stocked in quality 304, and 316 stainless steel. Stainless steel beams can be extruded, hot rolled or laser fused, offer high strength corrosion resistance, and can be sanitized for use in hygienic conditions. Stainless steel beams are utilized in food service, chemical, pharmaceutical, and structural framing.
Stainless channel, is a channel shape with inside radius corners that is ideal for all structural applications where greater strength and superior corrosion resistance is required. 304 Stainless Channel has a durable dull, grainy mill finish that is widely used for all types of fabrication projects that are exposed to the elements - chemical, acidic, fresh water, and salt water environments.
Whether you're looking for stainless steel channel or stainless steel beam, you can find it here, available in full sizes and custom-cut lengths.

What standard shapes are available?
Angles, channels, beams, flats, rounds, squares etc. Custom profiles can also be rolled as per drawings.
What are the common size ranges?
Dimensions vary widely but typically range from 12″x12″ down to thin 1/8″ sections. gauge thickness varies accordingly.
How is stainless profile joined?
Welding with GTAW or GMAW process using matching filler rods like 309/316. Mechanical fasteners can also be used.
What surface finishes are provided?
No.1D (polished), No.2B (bright annealed), No.3 (leaving grinder marks) are standards. Also bead/spot blasted on request.
What industries use stainless profiles?
Architecture, industrial equipment, food/dairy plants, pulp & paper, wastewater treatment commonly employ them.
Does surface contamination affect performance?
Yes, contamination from fingerprints, dust impacts corrosion resistance. Periodic cleaning suggested for outdoor use.
Are load bearing joints designed differently?
Heavier beams typically require full penetration butt welds for strength.Bolted connections can also be specified.
What certifications & testing standards apply?
ASTM A480/A554,ASME SA480,EN 10088 specifications. Samples undergo mechanical/corrosion testing.
