ERW tube is a variety of steel tube that is made from sections of steel that are heated and rolled into shape, then welded into position to form a seam lengthways along the section.

Unlike other forms of tube such as regular welded pipe, or spiral weld pipe, ERW tube is distinct in that the seams formed from the weld are invisible, meaning it does not need to be worked further in order to hide the seam in instances that it should not be visible.

As ERW tube is created using this unique, seamless manufacturing process, it is less suited for heavy load bearing uses than regular varieties of structural tube. ERW steel tube is often used in less strenuous contexts, such as automotive parts, fencing, scaffolding and balustrades.


Our team can provide you access to a range of steel tube processing options and also offer cut-to-length services. We can tailor your supply of ERW steel tube to the specifications that your project requires.

In offering these ERW tube processing services, we believe that we advance our commitment to provide premium integrated steel solutions for our clients.
