Square tubing is commonly used in industrial and domestic settings because of the numerous benefits it provides. Industries value square tubing for its strength and ability to withstand extremes of temperature, pressure and destructive elements. In domestic settings, square tubes are used in appliances, pipes and fencing.
Benefits of Square Tubing
Uniformity – In addition to its mechanical properties, square tubing contains uniform wall thickness and concentricity.
Strength – Cold forming allows square tubing to have a higher yield and tensile strength that the steel from which it is made. This makes the material able to withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and destructive elements.
Cost-Effectiveness – Square tubing undergoes less processing that other types of mechanical tubing, so it can provide cost advantages for less-demanding applications.
