Our Mild Steel tube is manufactured to the highest standards and comes in a variety of sizes and options. It is easy to cut, drill or weld and can be painted or galvanised after fabrication to increase corrosion resistance. This makes it suitable to be used to make frames, furniture and in general fabrications. All our sizes are kept in stock for a quick delivery and can be supplied in 6 metre or 3 metre lengths, or we can cut to your required size.

Most of the sizes listed are erw or Electrically resistance welded, where the steel tube is continuously seam welded to produce a clean weld running the full length and is of good structural integrity, this does mean that the weld bead projects slightly into the inside diameter of the tube. If you require a smooth bore then seamless tube would be more suitable.

The sizes listed as hydraulic are produced to EN 10305 - 4 : 2003 and are Seamless cold drawn tubes for hydraulic and pneumatic power systems and are for precision applications.

    Customer friendly

    In my free time I do a lot of sculptures for the garden using metal, I absolutely love this company and their products are the best I've found. I refuse to go anywhere else for my metal needs.

    Galvanised next time

    Bought some to use in my garden as plant supports, coated it so it wouldn't rust too and it works even better than I hoped for.

    I brought a small one only 6 by 1mm. Came in handy for my job as I could fit it into my tool box for those rare occasions when I need it.
