Steel Posts Fact Sheet
Steel posts, or steel bars, come in a number of different shapes and sizes and are used in a huge variety of applications, from construction to manufacturing, and for industrial uses.
Steel posts are a common type of structural steel and come in an array of shapes and sizes.
Flat posts are flat steel sections used by fabricators for everything from construction and mining infrastructure to transport and storage. Size vary greatly.
Square posts (or ‘squares’) are solid square steel sections. Sizes range from 10mm upwards. Applications include door frames, ornamental architecture and balustrades.
Round posts (or ’rounds’) are solid circular steel sections. Sizes can range from just a few millimetres to thick metal bars. As such, applications can range from tent pegs to car axles.
Angled posts can either either be equal or unequal. Both are right angled, however, unequal sections have different sized axis’ making them L-shaped. This kind of section is much stronger (up to 20%) with much higher strength to weight ratios. They are available in wide range of lengths and sizes.
