Steel Pipe Fact Sheet
Steel pipe sections have hollow tubular cross sections and have much higher resistance to torsion that tapered flange beams. Thickness of the walls are uniform around the entire circle which makes this beams great for use with multi-axis loading applications.
Steel pipe is an extremely useful and versatile kind of steel section. There are a few different types available.
Galvanised Steel Pipe
Galvanised steel piping is everywhere in the modern world. The galvanised element of the steel provides an increased resistance to harsh conditions, rust and erosion meaning that it is suitable for signage and plumbing.
There are two types of galvanised steel piping – those with protection inside and out, and just outside. Lengths are generally just over 5m and the thickness of the steel varies, depending on the application.
Black Steel Pipe
Black steel piping is untreated, ie; without galvanisation. Lengths are generally just over 5m and the thickness of the steel varies, depending on the application.This kind of piping is suitable for support, signage, plumbing and posts.
