Our Steel box section or square tube is suitable for making frames, structures, security grills, transport, furniture and general fabrications. It can be easily cut and drilled with the correct equipment although it is possible to cut the smaller sizes with a good quality hack saw and some elbow grease, Welding properties are good and good results can be achieved. It is recommended that fabrications should be painted or galvanised to improve resistance to corrosion although we do stock a range of pre galvanised box section. For Food production or pharmaceutical use stainless steel may be a better choice. We stock a range of metric and imperial sizes, a conversion for imperial thickness is shown below. All sizes are held in stock for a quick delivery.

swg stands for "standard wire gauge" an imperial thickness measurement.
10 swg is 3.2mm, 12 swg is 2.6mm, 14 swg is 2mm, 16 swg is 1.6mm and 18 swg is 1.2mm
