You are able to select more than one products' steel sections at a time in order to compare it with all other products. For example, if you have a project consisting of two products, where one is covering Beams and the other is covering Hollow Sections or Columns, then you can select both of these products and compare them against one or more others that are also capable of covering Beams, Hollow Sections and Columns.
