Oval Tube

Oval Tube

An ergonomic, tactile shape that is perfect for handrails and balustrades in conjunction with structural glass and brickwork. A low-maintenance design commonly used for architectural and marine purposes.

Founded by Timeless Tube in 1987, the iconic oval tube and its casting system is a low-maintenance design specially developed for marine and architectural applications.

Carefully developed over the years, the elliptical oval tube profile offers a gentle aesthetic together with an ergonomic and tactile shape.
When used as a handrail, it can be joined by welding the castings into the tube without any visual defects, creating an uncompromising, seamless form (or it can be simply dry joined). It enables fabricators to produce high quality handrails and balustrades in conjunction with structural glass and brickwork.

We can make oval tubing from any of the metals that we offer. If you use stainless steel 316L or stainless steel 304 then it is 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.

We offer this profile in smaller sections of rolled or fixed radius bends.

Our 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).

We offer a joining system for oval and twisted oval tubing, which enables you to produce handrail and balustrades with uncompromising, seamless joins. Find out more.
