Default Strange sections

From a user's email

I have also now noticed, which was not present before, that additional column sections have appeared in the table of section sizes i.e. 203 x 203 x 100, 203 x 203 x 113 and 203 x 203 x 127. When were these introduced?

These sections are among the 21 added to the standard BS range in 2006 by Corus under the name Advance. For more information see

If specifying one of these sections for use in a small job it might be prudent to check availability with a local steel stockholder. In most cases the new sections are heavier rolls of existing section families so suitable substitutes might be hard to find if dimensional constraints apply.
