What Makes Steel Square Tubing Suitable for Various Applications?

The reason behind the popularity of steel square tubing is that they come in a variety of shapes and their strength. They can withhold extreme temperatures and pressure. There is a wide usage of steel tubes in industries and for domestic purposes. For example in domestic purposes, steel tubes are widely used in appliances and gas pipes. If you want to have a look at them, look behind your refrigerator, and you will find some.

These are some of the reasons behind the popularity of steel square tubing, such as:


When installing solar systems for customers, solar companies want to make sure that what they are installing would last for a long time. Therefore the companies in the solar industries are shifting from using aluminum to steel tubes. The reason behind this is the higher modulus of elasticity of steel. This means that under intense heat that a solar panel attracts, steel will withstand more of it and will last much longer.


To keep the mother earth healthy and to prevent the natural resources from running out, recycling is important. The best thing about steel is that it is fully recyclable, and it is the world’s most recycled material.


The cost of materials is an essential element that affects how the project will go on. The price of metal fluctuates based on global supply and demand. However, the good news here is that steel is cheaper than aluminum. This means that for large projects, you can save a significant amount, leading to a reduction in the cost of a project.

Transportation costs 

Steel is galvanized prior to shipping out, so no transportation cost is needed to move the materials from one location to another for coating or other processes.
