Steel Beams & Tubing for Solar Farms
The solar industry has grown at a rapid pace over the last decade, and one of the main sectors of this industry is solar farms. A solar farm is a collection of solar panels that are installed across acres of land. Solar farms have been popping up all across the globe, and North Shore Steel can assist with the creation of the solar panel mounts for this sector.

All of the parts for the solar trackers can be galvanized upon request. Our company stocks the largest inventory of galvanized structural steel products in the Gulf Coast, and our team can also have your structural steel tracker system parts galvanized with a 24-hour turnaround.
Common Applications for Structural Steel Used in Solar Industry
North Shore Steel has experience providing structural steel products to the solar industry, and our team is here to help companies with their solar farm installation projects. The solar panel mounts are comprised of a steel tube and steel beams. The round or square steel tube can be used for the based of the solar panel mount, and the steel wide flange beams or I beams are used to secure the solar panel to the mount. If your solar application requires galvanized structural steel products, we are also able to supply galvanized steel tubes and beams.

Beam is a main structural steel shape used in many applications, including bridges, buildings, skids, structures, and general fabrication.
I Beam is a structural section on which the flanges are tapered and are typically not as long as the flanges on wide-flange beams.
Wide Flange beam is a structural steel section on which the flanges are not tapered, but have equal thickness from the tip to the web and are at right angles at the web.
