Square tubing, such as our ProFrame, is most commonly used in industrial and domestic environments, but this does not mean you cannot use it. Industries use square tubing, like our Proframe, because of the long list of benefits it can bring. In industries, square tubing is used due to its strength, ability to withstand the extremes of temperature and pressure. Alternatively, domestic settings value square tubes as they are perfect to be used in appliances, fencing, and pipes.
Our ProFrame system is a popular and versatile construction system utilising square tubes and joints. This system is used for making an array of products including workstations, benches, desks, partitioning, displays, shelving units and many more.
I have compiled a list of some of the most significant benefits of our ProFrame.
As well as the benefits of its mechanical properties, square tubing contains uniform wall thickness and concentricity. Our ProFrame square tubing is 1.2mm thick but there is a range of wall thickness dimensions and OD which you can choose from. This makes it suitable for various applications and needs.
Square tubing has the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, pressures, and destructive elements. This is because cold forming allows square tubing to have a higher yield and strength than the steel material it was made from. It can also be easily bent, formed, punched, and drilled. This allows it to be used in a multitude of ways.
As it undergoes less processing than other types of mechanical tubing, square tubing can provide you with fewer costs for less demanding applications. Additionally, it has a greater strength-to-weight ratio. This means with square tubing you need less steel, by weight, to complete your job.
Square tubing is accessible in an extremely wide range of OD and wall thickness dimensions. This makes it suitable for various applications and needs. Furthermore, square tubing is produced in round, square and rectangular shapes and in a variety of special shapes to meet the needs of individual applications.
Square tubing is a more cost-effective choice for hydroformed or stamped body assemblies and a range of mechanical components for automobiles and trucks, farm equipment and construction equipment.
