Steel Square Tube

Steel square tubes, also known as square hollow sections (SHS) or square steel pipes, are hollow structural steel tubing characterized by their square or rectangular cross-sectional shape. They are manufactured by bending and shaping flat steel sheets or rolling and welding steel strips into the desired shape. Square tubing is generally used for maintenance and structural purposes, but depending on the metal, it can be applied to many other purposes.

Steel square tubes are widely used in various industries and applications due to their structural strength, durability, and versatility. Here are some key features and common uses of steel square tubes:

  • Structural Support: Steel square tubes are commonly used as load-bearing members in construction and engineering projects. They provide structural support and stability, making them ideal for building frames, bridges, and infrastructure applications.
  • Frameworks and Fabrication: Their straight sides and right angles make steel square tubes suitable for creating frameworks and structures. They are often utilized to fabricate equipment, machinery, shelving units, and racks.
  • Architectural Applications: Steel square tubes find use in architectural designs and exterior applications. They are employed for constructing fences, handrails, gates, and ornamental structures. The clean lines and aesthetic appeal of steel square tubes make them popular in modern architecture.
  • Manufacturing and Industrial Processes: These tubes are widely employed in manufacturing and industrial applications. They serve as structural components in conveyor systems, material handling equipment, machinery frames, and support structures for manufacturing lines.
