Frequently Asked Material Handling Questions Phoenix | Custom Material Handling 480-829-7232   Which Is Stronger? Structural Or Roll Formed Columns? What determines the amount that a braced column section will bend when a load is applied is called the moment of inertia. It is expressed with reference to the bending axis, and in forklift impact, deeper columns will have much greater bending resistance. Column depths more important than the material thickness or the column width, and as a result, if a structural and roll formed column of equivalent capacities have these loadings applied, the structural will temporarily bend, or deflect, up to seven times as much as would the roll formed section. In terms of failure caused by overload, this relationship holds. A roll formed column of an equivalent capacity is approximately four times as strong in failure as the structural section, meaning that the structural column will tolerate only one-quarter of the force of the roll formed column before the deflection above becomes permanent deformation. It is obvious that that the roll formed column dents more easily than the structural, it isn’t considered “damaged” unt [...]
