Tubing

Straight tubing is available in carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, and aluminum in sizes ranging from 2-1/8" OD to meet the needs of most applications. Standard lengths are 20'. Wall thickness ranges from 16 ga. to 11 ga. and vary with diameter. For applications where abrasion is a concern, 11 ga. tubing is available in most sizes.
