UPE beams are a type of structural steel similar to UNP beams and IPE beams. What distinguishes UPE beams from UNP beams is their uniform flange thickness. Compared to IPE beams, UPE beams have parallel flanges, hence the name "UPE" which stands for "U-profile European". ​​​​​​​
Our UPE beams are made of high-quality steel, which gives them high durability and good corrosion resistance. UPE beams offer a number of advantages. Thanks to their U-shape and parallel flanges, they offer a larger surface for connection, which can be an advantage in the construction of complex structures. They are also lighter than other beams of the same size, which can contribute to reduced transportation and installation costs. UPE beams are well suited for use as a complement to H-beams in areas with less load.
UPE beams are used in a variety of sectors, including the construction industry, machine manufacturing, bridge and tunnel construction. They are also popular in the construction of homes, offices, and other buildings, where their strength, durability, and efficiency are crucial. UPE beams offer a balance between performance, weight, and cost-effectiveness that makes them an attractive alternative in a variety of applications.

Flat bars are flexible in terms of design and shape.
At Huddinge Steel, we offer quality assignments in cutting, welding, and painting of flat bars.
Flat bars are cut using band saws and circular saws. We have optically controlled cutting machines that enable fine-cut details. We deliver forged items in various shapes and qualities.
We cut, and clip, to the measurements and angles that you need.
We also offer welding of flat bars according to your wishes. At Huddinge Steel, we have access to IWS competence for welding supervision for EXC2 entirely in accordance with SS EN 1090-2.
We also carry out painting of structures with a length of up to 22 meters and a width of up to 4 meters. The painting is done in Huddinge and we do both primer and lacquering, class 1 to 5.


Stainless flat bar is used in environments with higher corrosivity classification than flat bars of s355 steel. Huddinge Steel does not stock stainless flat bar but it can be ordered.


Aluminum flat bar is used in environments with higher corrosivity classification than flat bars of s355 steel but they do not have the same ability to carry loads. Huddinge Steel does not stock aluminum flat bar but it can be ordered.

Further information:
  • Width and thickness are measured at a point at least 100 mm from the end of the bar.
  • Straightness is measured over the total length of the bar (L).
  • The right angle is measured as the difference between u and the nominal value for width (b).
