Here at Stainless Structurals America we take pride in delivering a product that not only meets your standards, but also astounds you when you see our sharp cornered profiles. From an aesthetic standpoint, these sharp corners are loved from architects all over the world.
Sharp cornered tubes made out of stainless and carbon steel have become more popular with architects over the last few years. Even more so since we started producing tubes in our facility in Conroe, Texas. Our stainless steel square and rectangular tubes are 100% domestic melt and manufactured here in the United States. With the addition of a third laser line, it has helped reduce lead times on these time intensive architectural tubes, all while keeping the quality at its finest!
Architectural Steel Tubing Applications
Sharp cornered stainless architectural tubes, whether they are rectangular or square, go into a plethora of architectural applications including mullions for curtain walls, platforms and bridges, stair stringers, storefronts and canopies, sunscreens, skylights and structural applications. Most of these applications will require corrosion resistance or where the design calls for the enhanced aesthetics of stainless steel. The stainless steel architectural tubes will go through our standard bead blast and passivation to cleanse any impurities and establish the exterior chromium oxide layer of stainless that prevents corrosion.
Carbon steel architectural tubes are used in many of the same applications as their stainless steel counterparts but more so in areas where corrosion is not a factor. This includes interior and exterior applications. The carbon steel tubes are produced by the same laser welding process and go through all the same steps except for passivation. Our standard blasting is done to remove any impurities from the material. Carbon steel does provide a cost savings over stainless where applicable.
Tube Production Capabilities
Stainless Structurals puts the custom in architectural steel tubing. Everything dimension is customizable and no one in the industry can produce tubing in the range of sizes that we are able to make. Our tube sizes start at 1”x1” and go all the way up to 36”x20” with thicknesses between 3/16”and 1-1/4” and offering a 5/8” full weld penetration. Standard lengths are 240” long with a tolerance of +4” and -0”, but we also are able to offer custom lengths up to 540”. These are made per ASTM A554 up to 8” in height or width and anything larger than that will be per ASTM A1069. In stainless, the standard 304/304L and 316/316L are available along with 2205 and 2507 duplex and other weldable stainless steel and nickel alloys. Carbon steel tubing is available standard in A36 or Gr. 50 and more.
