Flat-sided Oval Tube

Flat-sided Oval Tube

Clean, rounded lines and a flat-sided profile provide strength for architectural purposes – with a flat side useful for fixing to other elements.

The flat-sided oval tube is practical and elegant, making it a popular choice for designers and architects. Its clean shape and versatility lends itself well to a vast number of applications.

The smooth, rounded lines combined with the flat-sided profile provide additional strength for architectural purposes. The flat side also means it is very easy to fix securely to other elements. It offers simple maintenance, which is why flat-sided oval tube is so often used in marine and medical industries.

When the profile is formed in stainless steel 316L and stainless steel 304, the tube can be used externally, thanks to the extreme durability of this metal. For more decorative or restorative applications, we can also create our flat-sided oval tube with copper, brass, bronze and aluminium.

Stainless steel and aluminium 5083 flat-sided oval tube profiles are sold in lengths of 5.7m (the manufacturing process reduces the standard 6m length by 0.3 metres).
