The ornamental square tube design has a stronger aesthetic appeal with its refined shape when compared to conventional box section tubing. The ornamental square tube profile consists of blended radius corners and a slight convex side.
The smart design of this tube profile with softened corners is a popular choice for a vast number of applications. Not only does it offer a more pleasing appearance, but the profile design provides more strength compared to standard box section tubing.
The ornamental square tube lends itself to many applications. This ornate tube profile is a popular alternative to round tube for uses such as manufacturing furniture and baluster railing.
Due to its appealing looks and range of available sizes, it is ideal for balustrade and handrail panels. While the two largest tube sizes are suitable for newel posts, commonly known as staircase spindles. It is also the perfect solution for medical furniture and laboratory equipment where a wipe clean environment is a must.

Other metals are supplied in different tube sizes; the total is size reduced by 0.2 meters.
Stainless Steel 316l / 1.4404
All of our five tube products are available in premium quality stainless steel 316L. Also known as 1.4404 stainless steel, this marine grade stainless steel have fantastic qualities with a high resistance to corrosion. Perfect for exterior applications both structural and decorative, it is a strong and versatile material that is ideal for marine applications.
Stainless steel 304 / 1.4301
Any of our tube styles can be made using stainless steel 304. Sometimes referred to as 1.4301 stainless steel, this practical and versatile material provides ample strength while retaining a high degree of manipulability. This quality metal is suitable for structural and decorative purposes and lends itself to interior applications.
Aluminium 5083 is a high quality premium grade aluminium that possesses immense strength coupled with excellent formability. This combination makes aluminium 5083 perfect for a wide range of applications. This material has a high value, but the additional attribute of being lighter in weight makes it desirable for specific projects.
Aluminium 6063 is cost effective alternative for applications where strength and weight are key attributes. Although a lower grade material compared to aluminium 5083, it remains a practical and versatile metal that can be used to create our flat sided oval tubes, oval tubes and ornamental square tubes.
Copper / Brass / Bronze
Copper is a pure metal that is known for its strength, durability, resistance to corrosion and natural reddish brown colour.
Brass is an alloy consisting of copper and zinc, which increases its strength compared to pure copper and provides a lighter gold-like finish.
Bronze is also an alloy consisting primarily of copper that offers increased strength and more resistance to abrasion.
All of our tube products are available in these metals and are suitable for decorative applications due to their enhanced aesthetics.
