Steel tubing is a versatile material that is available in round, square, and rectangular shapes. It is typically made from a variety of different alloys, like aluminum and titanium, that provide strength and other notable properties. From heat exchangers and staircase handrails to truck and trailer manufacturing, steel tubing offers a combination of strength, durability, and affordability that make it the ideal choice for a wide range of applications.

We offer a full line of standard diameters, shapes, and wall thicknesses, as well as specialty steel tubing products. Cut-to-length service is available to give you the perfect steel tubing for your project. Our selection of steel tube includes:
Hot Rolled Steel TubingThis steel tube has been processed using very high temperatures and a series of rollers to make it easier to work with. Hot rolling keeps the material free from internal stresses. This type of tubing is found frequently in the construction industry, but not for precise applications.
Cold Rolled Steel TubingThis steel tubing begins as hot rolled steel but is processed even further to create a more finished surface and provide additional strength. This process is more suited for applications that have strict tolerance, straightness, and surface condition requirements because cold rolling is a more precise finishing method.
Galvanized Steel TubingThis steel tube has been treated with a galvanized coating that makes the material more resistant to corrosion and extends the material’s life. Because the material is corrosion-resistant, it is often used for structural tubing in projects like bridges and fences where it may be subjected to environmental conditions.
Steel Tubing ApplicationsVersatile, long-lasting, and easy to cut, bend, and form, steel tube can be found in countless applications. Because steel tubing can withstand extreme conditions like temperature and pressure, it is found in a variety of industries that utilize these characteristics.
Construction, engineering, and automotive manufacturing are some of the most common industries that use steel tube shapes. Almost all metal scaffolding is made from steel tube because it’s easy to assemble. Steel tubing is also found in the suspension, fuel injection, and vehicle control systems of an automobile.
Other common uses for steel tubing include:
- Solar panel frames
- Medical devices
- Industrial equipment
- Plumbing for fluids, gases, or electrical wiring
