Welded Steel Tube Profiles

Tubecon’s ability does not stop at manufacturing standard sections.

Welded steel profiles are achievable either off mill or from draw benches.  Sheet is incrementally formed from a coil into a mother tube. The mother tube is then welded hereafter the hollow steel profile is pressed.

Various steel tube profiles are viewed as standard in the South African market. These steel profiles include:


These steel profiles are most commonly rolled from hot rolled material and most commonly used as post for street signage boards.

Oval Tubes:

Mostly rolled from cold rolled material. Used for aesthetic end products such as furniture.  Standard oval steel tubes are usually flat or elliptical and add to the cosmetic finish of the manufactured item.

Dome Section:

The steel profile is used for hand railing, either indoors or for outdoor purposes.

Hydrabolt Steel Profile:

This welded hollow steel profile is used in the mining industry as a roof support. These tubes are mostly rolled from high strength steel.

Some of the more standard steel closed profiles are stocked in the most popular lengths and wall thicknesses. This enables us to supply to our customers as quickly as possible.

Cut-to-length facilities are also available and profiles can be cold formed from 3CR12 stainless steel, high tensile steel or commercial quality mild steel.
