BSI 02-2001

BS 4-1:1993

Foreword
This part of BS 4 has been prepared under the direction of the Iron and Steel
Standards Policy Committee and is a revision of BS 4-1:1980 which is withdrawn.
The major reason for this revision is to delete the requirements for tolerances on
beams, columns and bearing piles which are now contained in BS EN 10034,
published simultaneously with this standard. The opportunity has also been
taken to delete derived properties from the tables in the previous edition of this
standard.
The dimensions and masses of beams, columns and bearing piles have also been
amended slightly to correct anomalies in Table 5 to Table 7 of BS 4-1:1980.
Amendment No. 1 has been added to take into account UK requirements for
parallel flange channels.
A British Standard does not purport to include all the necessary provisions of a
contract. Users of British Standards are responsible for their correct application.
Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity
from legal obligations.

5 Mass and length tolerances for joists


and channels
5.1 Mass

universal columns

Tolerances shall be applied to the actual mass per


unit length of the joist or channel.

universal bearing piles

The rolling tolerances shall be either:

joists

a) 2.5 % of the actual mass per unit length; or

structural tees cut from universal beams

b) + 5 % of the actual mass per unit length where


a minimum mass per unit length is ordered.

structural tees cut from universal columns


taper flange channels

5.2 Length

parallel flange channels

Joists or channels ordered as specified or as


exact lengths shall be supplied as follows.

Mass, length and depth tolerances for taper flange


joists and channels are also given.
NOTE Dimensional, mass, length and straightness tolerances
for universal beams, columns and bearing piles are given in
BS EN 10034.

2 Normative reference
This part of BS 4 incorporates, by reference,
provisions from another publication. The normative
reference is cited at the appropriate point in the text
and the publication is given on the inside back cover.
Subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, this
publication apply to this part of BS 4 only when
incorporated in it by updating or revision.

3 Designation
A section shall be designated by the serial size in

a) Specified lengths. When a joist or channel is to


be cut to a specified length, it shall be cut to
within 25 mm of that length. When a
minimum length is specified, it shall be cut to
within + 50 mm of that minimum length.
0

b) Exact lengths. When a section is to be cut to an


exact length, it shall be cold sawn to
within 3.2 mm of that length.

6 Tolerance on depth of section for


joists and channels
The tolerance on the nominal depth of section shall
be as given in Table 1.
Table 1 Tolerances on nominal depth of
joists and channels
Nominal depth
Over
Up to and
including

millimetres (mm) and the mass per unit length in


kilograms per metre (kg/m).
This form of designation shall be used in any
enquiry and order.
