Oval Tube

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).

Metals

Stainless Steel 316l / 1.4404

All of our tube products are available in premium quality stainless steel 316L. Also known as 1.4404 stainless steel, this marine-grade stainless steel has 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

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

Aluminium 6063 is a 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 radius 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.

Stainless Steel Finishes

It is important to specify the right finish for your project. Our team can guide you through the finishing options available.

Our stainless steel tubes are typically supplied with a bright polish finish (600 grit), which is attractive, practical and has a better resistance to corrosion than a roughly polished surface. If you are looking for even greater reflectivity, you can achieve a mirror finish (800 grit) with further sisal polishing.

We can also provide a dull grit finish (240 grit), or a brushed or satin finish (320 grit). These fine grain, non-reflective satin finishes are popular because they effectively disguise blemishes or fingerprints.

If appearance is not important, or if finishing is to take place after further fabrication, we can also provide tubes with a mill finish or descaled finish.

Upon request, we can now even apply a wood-effect powder finish to our stainless steel tubes.
