Steel pipe sections have hollow tubular cross sections and have a much higher resistance to torsion that tapered flange beams. The walls’ thickness is uniform around the entire circle which makes these beams great for use with multi-axis loading applications.
Steel pipes are a beneficial and versatile kind of steel section. There are a few different kinds of steel piping available.
Galvanised Steel Pipes
Galvanised steel piping is everywhere in the modern world. The galvanised steel element provides 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 those with protection only on the outside. Lengths are generally just over 5m, and the thickness of the steel varies, depending on the application.
Black Steel Pipes
Black steel piping is untreated, i.e., 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.
