Rectangular/ Square hollow section manufacturing process

Rectangular/ Square hollow section are formed from coils and then ran through a series of dies. They are are welded from the inside to form their shape.

Hollow section

They are measured by their outside dimensions and their wall thickness.

Rectangular/ Square hollow section is commonly available in Q195, Q215, Q235, Q345 grade.

It can be purchased online and at any Metal Supermarkets location. It can be cut to your exact specifications.

Measurement the size

They are measured by their outside dimensions and their wall thickness.
