Frequently asked questions
What is aluminium round tube?
Aluminium tube, sometimes called pipe or round tubing, is a type of metal component used for a variety of different metalworking projects. This could be within industries such as construction, engineering, transportation and manufacturing.
What is aluminium round tubing used for?
Aluminium tube is commonly used because of its strength-to-weight ratio. It’s the material of choice for lots of production companies because it’s strong enough to support different sets and structures, while also being lightweight for those doing the work.
It's also good for scenarios where you need a lot of flexibility. You’ll often see aluminium round tube used in handrails or safety barriers. The circular shape of aluminium tube means that it can easily be bent, joined or handled.
Is aluminium round tube difficult to maintain?
Aluminium is one of the most durable metals out there, which is why it is so popular. Aluminium round tube is resistant to corrosion and can last for years with no more than regular checks. You should increase the frequency of these checks if it is in an exposed position, or if you are in an environment with lots of severe weather (such as rain, snow or wind).
Do you have any finishes for aluminium round tube?
Aluminium is a versatile and dependable metal, but these properties can be pushed further with different finishes. We offer a powder coating service for all of our aluminium products. This adds a layer of powder to your components, making them stronger and more resistant to weather. A good finish is especially important if your components are to be exposed to weather.
Aluminium tube can also be polished or anodised, which we can quote for if needed.
Is aluminium an environmentally friendly metal?
One of the best things about aluminium is that it is considered to be one of the most eco-friendly metals. This is because it can easily be recycled. If you select aluminium round tube as your component, you can rest assured that it can be recycled in the future. Up to 75% of all of the aluminium ever produced is still in use today, meaning that you won’t impact the environment as much as with other metals.
What is the difference between round tube and pipe?
There are no real differences between aluminium round tube and aluminium pipe – with one exception! The main difference is the measurements that you can purchase them in. Aluminium pipe is usually provided in measurements of NB, otherwise known as nominal bore. You should keep this in mind that these separate measurements exist.
