Steel rectangular tube is a versatile material with a wide range of applications in fields such as construction, transportation, machinery, and electricity. Its box-shaped structure provides greater strength and stiffness compared to angle steel or channel steel. Using rectangular tube as a material can enhance equipment stability, durability, and service life.

  1. Construction field

Rectangular tubes are commonly used in construction for building structural supports, house trusses, roof beams, and steel structural frames due to their durability, stability, and ability to withstand heavy weights. Their use ensures the strength and stability of the building structure, as well as improving its load-bearing capacity and service life.

2. Transportation field

Rectangular tubes are a suitable material for manufacturing brackets or beams in bridges, tunnels, stations, overpasses, highway guardrails, and other transportation projects. They offer good corrosion resistance and high strength, making them an ideal choice for traffic engineering in coastal and humid areas, ensuring a longer service life.

3. Mechanical field

Rectangular tubes are essential in the mechanical industry and can be used in the manufacturing of machine tools, heavy equipment, ships, aerospace, high-pressure vessels, and other fields. Their high strength and hardness make them capable of withstanding significant pressure and weight, making them ideal for use in the mechanical field.

4. Electric power field

Rectangular tubes are commonly used as towers for power transmission lines and substation equipment supports in the electric power industry. They possess excellent electrical insulation properties and high mechanical strength, ensuring the stability of power equipment and power supply quality.

Tips: ASTM A500 is a standard specification for seamless and weldable carbon structural steel published by ASTM International. ASTM A500 rectangular tube is a rectangular steel pipe that can be welded, riveted, or bolted for use in bridges or buildings and general structures.
