Galvanized Square & Rectangular Tube

Depending on the size, the galvanized square and rectangular tube is made in A513 grade steel and A500 grade steel and has been hot dipped into a molten zinc material. Through the galvanizing process, the tubing will prevent rust for decades while maintaining its strength and durability. The galvanization involves applying a protective zinc coating to the surface of the tubes, creating a barrier against moisture, chemicals, and other environmental factors that can cause rust and deterioration.

These tubes are typically made from low-carbon steel, which provides strength and durability while allowing for easy fabrication and welding. The square and rectangular shapes make them versatile and suitable for various applications.

Here are some common uses of galvanized square and rectangular tubes:

  • Construction: They are frequently used in construction projects for structural purposes, such as frameworks, support columns, and building frames. The galvanized coating ensures the tubes can withstand exposure to the elements, making them ideal for outdoor applications.
  • Fencing and Handrails: Galvanized square and rectangular tubes are commonly used for fencing systems, including perimeter fences, security barriers, and livestock enclosures. The corrosion resistance of the galvanized coating ensures a longer lifespan, even in harsh weather conditions. They are also utilized in handrails and guardrails for safety and stability.
  • Electrical Conduits: Galvanized tubes are often used as conduits for electrical wiring systems. The corrosion resistance protects the electrical wiring against moisture and other damaging elements.
  • Automotive Industry: Galvanized square and rectangular tubes are used in the automotive sector to manufacture components such as roll cages, chassis frames, and trailer beds. The galvanized coating offers protection against road salt, moisture, and other corrosive substances.
