At Union Steel Tubes we work hard to offer one of the broadest selections of tubing in the UK. As part of this we provide different shapes, wall thicknesses, and finishes. In addition we have a professional cutting service to deliver a variety of lengths. One product we can offer is a mild steel box section, otherwise known as square tube.
Why choose a box section?
When most people think about tubes they will imagine round circular ones. While they are the most common style, oval, rectangular and square options are also available. This gives people far more options to choose from.
Square tubing or box sections are great for many applications. For example they can be useful for creating furniture, for construction, for framework, and many other products. The tubes are also perfect for a number of general fabrication uses because it is possible to adapt them in a number of ways.
The properties of mild steel
A lot of people will opt for a mild steel box section when they want this kind of product. That is because the metal offers a number of impressive characteristics.
Like most steels, mild steel is strong and durable. However, it stands out due to the fact that it is ductile and malleable. This is possible because of the low carbon content. What it means is that it is relatively easy to work with the metal. It responds well to various cold forming processes. On top of that it is machinable and weldable.

As we said above, Union Steel Tubes works to ensure we supply one of the broadest selections of tubing in the UK. We specialise in ERW, producing quality welded tubes at our mill.
