Different types of Hollow Sections:

Steel hollow sections are the most flexible and adaptable equipment for industrial applications. Hollow sections are generally used in welded columns, beams, and frames. These hollow sections are available in 3 basic types. Hollow sections are commonly used on construction sites. Hollow sections offer excellently high tensile and yield strength. It provides excellent resistance from corrosion, stress cracking, and oxidation.

Hollow sections are generally tested using various types of testing methods and equipment. These sections play an important role in building and constructing. Hollow sections are 100% customizable and are available in various sizes, shapes, and dimensions. All of these types are applicable at low-temperature applications.
The hollow section has the property to ease architecture and construction. There are three main types of hollow sections :


1. RHS: Rectangular hollow sections:

Rectangular hollow sections are the most ideal application of high stressed applications. It is of the strongest grade that is used for various applications which require high strength and robustness. It is commonly used for structural and mechanical applications. RHS is easily bendable, it can be easily welded and joined. These sections are commonly manufactured in various sizes and shapes. RHS is manufactured in estimated 300mm X 200mm sizes.

These hollow sections are commonly applicable in :

  • Offshore Structure
  • Machine construction
  • Agricultural equipment
  • vehicle building.

2. CHS: Circular hollow sections:

Circular hollow sections are used in various industries for a variety of applications. These sections are also called round steel tubes. These circular hollow sections are used for multiple purposes commonly for mechanical, building, and structural uses. This type of hollow section is commonly applicable in low-temperature applications. CHS has excellent strength and robustness. These are commonly used for permanent uses, CHS is enriched with excellent welding properties. CHS is commonly produced up to size 300 mm.

3. SHS: Square hollow sections:

The square hollow section is one of the most important section types in all classified industries. It acts as a middleman between CHS and RHS. This particular type is very economical in price and excellently welded as it has a flat surface. SHS requires minimum edge precipitation. SHS is highly robust and hard, it also has great flexibility. These SHS are highly ductile hence it is used on construction sites and other industries. SHS provides a great balance between functionality, strength, and robustness.
