Customer Question

I have a 4'x24' hole that im going to cover with steel beams with 1/4 steel plate on top and the steel beams will be 4' wide and mounted into concrete on both sides so what size beams or support do you suggest if a 10000 pound vehicle has to drive over it

2. Do you know the configuration of your vehicle, axle spacing and axle weights?
