WHAT IS RHS STEEL?

Rectangular hollow section steel or RHS steel are hollow, rectangular-shaped tubes of steel. These steel sections are used widely throughout Australia for construction purposes. Some of the most common uses include fence posts, fence rails, gate frames and structural support.

WHAT ARE STEEL PIPES?

Steel pipes are hollow, circular tubes made of steel. These tubes are most often used to carry materials such as water or gas safely from one area to another. Because of their strength and durability, steel tubes do well underground and can also be used as a protective cover for electrical wires and other fragile elements.

WHAT ARE FLAT, ROUND AND ANGLED BARS?

Flat, round and angled bars are generally used by structural steel fabricators to build a number of different products. They come in flats, rounds, steel angles, squares, strips, channels – almost any form. They are generally used in structural applications that involves welding or bending.

WHAT IS A STRUCTURAL BEAM

Structural beams are capable of withstanding load primarily by resisting bending. Bending moment is the bending force induced into the material of the beam as a result of external loads, own weight, span and external reactions to these loads.
