Steel tube is used as a structural element in buildings, bridges and other structures, and in a wide variety of manufactured products. It's produced in round, square and rectangular shapes in a broad range of sizes and gauges.
Rectangular tubing has many benefits: aesthetic appeal, high strength-to-weight ratios, uniform strength, cost effectiveness and recyclability.
The advantages for designers, specifies, fabricators and end users are outlined on the
• Rectangular tubing has greater strength-to-weight ratios. So, with Rectangular tubing you need less steel, by weight, to do the job. And less weight equals less cost
• Excellent compression and support characteristics and superior resistance make Rectangular tubes particularly well suited to all types of column applications
• Rectangular steel tube is made from steel, one of the world’s most recyclable and recycled materials
• Torsional strength makes steel rectangular tube an excellent choice for bear resistant and consistent.
Rectangular tube is fire resistant and does not warp, twist, split, swell or shrink. It resists dry rot and mildew, termites and carpenter ants. For increased fire resistance, the exterior of the product may be sprayed with a fire retardant material. The interior can be filled with concrete. Tube rectangular can be readily bent, formed, punched, and drilled. New and improved methods to fasten Rectangular tubing to itself or to other materials are making its use simpler and fabrication faster.
