Aluminium Tube

Aluminium tubing is a hollow pipe made from aluminium alloy and is widely used in the construction of kitchen appliances, furniture and other household items. Because of their high strength-to-weight ratio, conduction properties and the fact that aluminium is anti-corrosive, aluminium tube is extremely popular for use in construction for a plethora of applications.

Aluminium tube sizes vary widely as it is available in round, rectangular, square hollow, and telescopic shapes. Not only does the aluminium tubing that we supply come in various shapes but also a wide selection of sizes, from 16 mm, 25 mm to 50 mm aluminium tubes, but also in a selection of thicknesses.

What’s the difference between an aluminium tube and pipe?

The main difference between an aluminium tube and pipe is the shape. Whilst they are both hollow extrusions, tubes can be square, round, or rectangular, whereas pipes are only ever round. This is because the applications of aluminium pipes require even pressure distribution which is only accommodated from round shapes. As well as this, aluminium tubes can be telescopic, whereas pipes cannot.
