Rectangular Tubing

A rectangular tube, also known as a box section, is a hollow piece of metal made and formed from a coil and ran through multiple welding to form its rectangular shape. Due to its durability and versatility, rectangular steel tubing is often used for structural and architectural purposes.

Whitt Building Supplies can provide the rectangular tubing you need for your project. Before you call us for your order, here are some facts you need to know about them:

Common Properties of Rectangular Tubing

Depending on the material, there are various types of rectangular tubes: mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum rectangular tubing. These three metals are highly durable and corrosion-resistant. They are also fire resistant, preventing them from warping, bending, or twisting with heat. This durability makes them low maintenance.

Since they’re made from common high-quality metals, rectangular tubes can be fabricated easily and customized to fit specific requirements for the project. Their shape allows them to maximize material efficiency. And since they’re lightweight compared to other structures, they can be installed easily. As such, using rectangular tubes can reduce your overall construction cost.

Uses of Rectangular Tubing

Due to their versatility, rectangular tubes are used in various applications in a construction project. They can be used as frames and support in racks and shelving systems. Their exceptional strength-to-weight ratio makes them great options for columns and beams in commercial and industrial applications.
