CMC Steel Products manufactures the SMARTBEAM®, the intelligent alternative for long-span composite floor construction or long-span roof applications for architecturally exposed steel.

The most common building types for the SMARTBEAM® are office buildings, parking garages, mezzanines, and long span roof systems. The SMARTBEAM® has superior vibration characteristics and its ability to accommodate MEP equipment makes it an ideal product for any floor application. The beams are aesthetically pleasing, lightweight and structurally sound.

The Girder-Slab System continues to add more tonnage each year to the industry by providing architects and structural engineers with a steel solution for multi-story residential construction. The unique low-profile D-Beam, which only projects 9/16 below the precast hollow core slabs, offers an economical alternative to a cast-in-place concrete structure. This non-proprietary system is available for use by all design professionals and is distributed by independent structural steel contractors through competitive bidding or design build opportunities.
