What Size RSJ?

Answer

RSJ refers to a rolled steel joist. Builders use it when removing a supporting wall, in order to ensure the building remains standing. In the UK, RSJ sections are usually specified with a code consisting of the major dimension (usually the depth) by the minor dimension by the mass per metre-ending with the section type. Keep in mind that all measurements are metric. Thus a 152 x 152 x 23UC (UC = universal column) would be a column section of approximately 152 millimetres (6 inches) depth 152 millimetres (6 inches) width and weighing 23 kg per meter length.
