World-renowned tubing solutions

For over 30 years, our specialist engineers have been manufacturing shaped metal tubes and joiners. Our six distinct tube designs are used by architects and fabricators across a wealth of industries.

Each design has different properties, with profiles such as flat-sided oval tube and twisted square tube offering significant advantages over standard round tubing.

Whether you want just one length or 1000s of lengths of tube, we will create each one with the same fastidious attention to detail.

Prototypes and product development

Our innovative engineers welcome any opportunity to use their creativity and skill to customise tubing to meet our clients’ needs. Sometimes we even have to make new tooling in order to make new tube sizes.

Unlike some larger manufacturers, our smaller set-up gives us the flexibility to manufacture bespoke prototypes. This in turn helps to make the product development process – and niche jobs – easier for you. Take a look at our Design / R&D page to see some examples of prototypes we have helped to make for clients.

Please note, we have a minimum order quantity of one length, which is just under 6 metres long. There is a £50 set-up fee for all orders under 5 lengths.

Premium-grade metals only

Most of our tubes are manufactured from stainless steel as it offers excellent resistance to corrosion. We use two grades of premium-quality stainless steel; stainless steel 304L (1.4301), which is the most popular industry grade, and stainless steel 316L (1.4404), which contains a higher nickel and molybdenum content for greater corrosive resistance.

We also use aluminium 5083, aluminium 6063 T6, titanium, copper, brass and bronze. (We can work with other metals provided they are non-ferrous).

To ensure the optimal quality of our tube profiles, we only partner with leading metal suppliers. Find out more about our metals.

Superior service

We’re proud to have pioneered some ‘world first’ tubing designs. But we’re equally proud of the care we give our clients. We won’t try to sell you a service or finish unless you actually need it. Our approach is transparent – and we listen well so that we can meet your needs.

The only thing that we’re not upfront about is the exact nature of our manufacturing process, which is a closely guarded secret. (Saying that, if you want to visit us at our workshop in Dorset, we’ll gladly make you a cup of tea and show you around).

If you need any fabrication, polishing, bending and machining, speak to us about managing this for you as it could save you time and money.
