Oval ERW Tubes

At Union Steel Tubes we set very high standards for all of our products. Quality management is very important to us and the reason why we are an ISO 9001 company. We do all we can to make sure our tubing is as good as it can be. This includes checks for accuracy, the finish, and more. So, if you need round, square, rectangular, or oval ERW tubes, you can buy from us with full confidence.

Two types of oval

Our goal is to help clients choose the best tubes for every project. One way we do this is by suggesting the right shape to use. However, there can be some confusion when it comes to oval tubing. That is because a lot of people don’t realise there are actually two different types. The shapes are unique so it is important to understand which you need; selecting the wrong type in error could ruin your project.


When most people say oval they will actually mean elliptical. This shape has a continuous curve around the whole circumference. It is a great option for things like handrails and racks because the curve makes the tubing ergonomic.

Flat side

The second option is a flat side oval. Here the curves are at each end of the tube but the sides are both flat, straight lines. As you can see this will be a different shape to a true oval. It does offer a lot of benefits though, including a large volume and being easier to mount.

High quality steel

As well as starting off with the best steel, we have excellent equipment to roll steel strips into tubes and then weld them. Our team are experts and we have quality checks to make sure everything meets our high standards.

Union Steel Tubes is one of the top suppliers of ERW tubes because we have sizes to cater for almost any needs. Our product range includes a large number of options, including different diameters and wall thicknesses. We can even create bespoke tubes on request.
