SIMPLE YET SOPHISTICATED METAL TUBE DESIGN

Founded by Timeless Tube in 1987, the iconic oval tube is simplistic in design and yet it offers so much more than standard round tubing.

Carefully developed over the years, the elliptical oval tube profile combines a gentle aesthetic together with an ergonomic shape, making it inviting to the touch as well as appealing to the eye. When used as a handrail or balustrade, it can be joined by welding our specially designed joiners into the tube without any visual defects, creating an uncompromising, seamless form (oval tubing can even be dry joined with our joiners if welding is not an option).

Metals and finishes

We can make oval tubing from any of the metals that we offer. Stainless steel 316L or stainless steel 304 are ideal for both internal and external applications. Aluminium 5083 and aluminium 6063 offers reduced weight. Copper, brass or bronze are popular for restorative or decorative jobs - and also healthcare applications, thanks to copper and copper alloys' remarkable antimicrobial properties, which can help to kill viruses and bacteria from metal surfaces in healthcare settings.

USED IN AN EXTENSIVE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

Oval tube is our most popular tube shape, because it can be used for so many applications including automotive parts and laboratory components, as well as decorative metal architectural tubing. We currently have over 200 sizes of oval tubing available, and we can custom-make new sizes if your project requires. Our set-up allows us to manufacture small order quantities and prototypes, as well as large scale repeat orders.

OVAL TUBE JOINING SYSTEM FOR EASIER INSTALLATION

We offer a joining system for stainless steel oval tubing, which enables you to produce handrail and balustrades with uncompromising, seamless joins. These robust 316L stainless steel joiners – sometimes referred to as elbow joiners – connect tubing at horizontal and vertical corners. We also stock straight joiners that connect long lengths of straight handrail or balustrading.

Fabrication services for oval tubes

As the originator of oval tubing, we have 30 years’ expertise in shaping, bending and fabricating this tube profile. Ask any professional tube bender and they will tell you that bending an oval tube is more complex than bending a round tube because it has two axis. We have the tooling and the expertise to create bends in oval tubing – from tight bends to sweeping curves. We offer this profile in smaller sections of rolled or fixed radius bends.

If you need your oval tubes polished, we have specialised machines for oval tube polishing (or we can polish by hand, depending on the finish and quantity of tubing required).

If you choose to use our joiners to connect your stainless steel oval tubes, we can weld them together then polish out the weld seam for a seamless, high-quality finish.

Using Timeless Tube for your bending, welding and polishing can save you time and money, plus you have the added assurance that expert tube manipulators who understand shaped tubing will be working on your application.

Sizes

http://stainless%20steel%20tubes

The image shows how dimensions are detailed (for example, 23.5mm x 13.3mm x 1.5mm).

Stainless steel and aluminium 5083 oval tube profiles are sold in lengths of 5.8m (the manufacturing process reduces the standard 6m length by 0.2 metres).

Can’t see the tube sizes you need in the table? Contact us about custom-sized tubing; we may able to fabricate a new size to meet your project requirements. Or download our brochure, which contains sizing information for existing aluminium and brass tubing too, as well as all stainless steel sizes.

Tolerances

Upon request, we will be able to find out wall thickness tolerances from our metal suppliers. Typically the tolerance levels of wall thickness are extremely minimal and any small variations in thickness do not affect further fabrication or the end application. However, it is important to let us know if the tolerance is critical to the application before you place an order. For example, if the shaped tubing component needs to go inside another component, or if the tubing has to house a component, any variation in wall thickness could be critical.
