Square Hollow Section (SHS) (P), also known as Cold Formed Square Hollow or Square Mild Steel Hollow.
SHS beams are rarely used as beams due to their shape, which makes it difficult to bolt to other beams.
SHSs are often called “box sections”.
An example is 100 x 100 x 8 SHS, which is 100 mm deep, 100 mm wide and the wall is 8 mm thick.
SHSs can be hot (made as one piece) and cold (made as a flat sheet that is bent and welded) – on the later the weld is clearly visible.
