Steel Pipes at BuildMart Gulf

Hollow Products, pipes and tubes, are made from either steel billets or strips of hot rolled or cold rolled steel.

Products in this family include:

  • Seamless pipes – Carbon and Galvanised
  • ERW pipes – Carbon and Galvanised
  • Square Hollow sections (SHS)
  • Rectangular Hollow sections (RHS)

Pipes – Seamless

These are usually made by heating and piercing steel billets.  These are strongest pipes and are used for the oil and gas industries, high pressure use applications and also in automotive applications.

Pipes ERW – Electric Resistance Welded

These are made using strips of hot rolled or cold rolled steel.  These flat strips are progressively rolled until the edges meet and then welded at the join.

Pipes and Tubes made by this method have a large number of applications in general steel fabrication and general engineering applications, light construction and furniture.

Hollow Sections

Both RHS and SHS hollow sections are made using the electrical resistance welding method which is same as that outlined above for the ERW pipes.
