Stainless Steel Hollow Sections

Stainless Steel Hollow Sections


Stainless steel hollow sections, also known as stainless steel box sections, are made by running stainless steel coils through a series of dies and welding the insides to form their different shapes. Stainless steel hollow sections are categorized into three main types: rectangular hollow sections (RHS), square hollow sections (SHS) and circular hollow sections (CHS). Each type of hollow section has its own attributes and serves a specific purpose. Stainless steel hollow section is appreciated for its tensile strength, durability, corrosion resistance and its ability to withstand extreme temperature, pressure as well as destructive elements. Stainless steel hollow sections have strong mechanical properties at ambient temperatures, which makes them ideal for being used in difficult metal forming processes such as flat bending, deep stamping and extrusion.


Uses of stainless steel hollow sections include architectural designs, construction, offshore and marine industries, machinery, railways, fabrication, building supports, pharmaceutical, automotive, agricultural, manufacturing and machineries.


Two of the common grades of stainless steel hollow sections are SS304 and SS316. SS304 is a stainless steel grade suitable for various manufacturing and construction applications due to it having superior corrosion resistance, excellent forming and welding properties and great durability. On the other hand, stainless steel grade 316 has higher strength and rigidity resistance than stainless steel grade 304, with the ability to maintain its properties in extreme temperatures. SS316 offers faster machining speeds, extended tool life, improved part quality and lower cost of machined parts.

Common Grades, Sizes and Specifi­cations

Grades Width Thickness Length
304/304L Up to 300mm From 1.2mm Up to 6000mm
316/316L Up to 300mm From 1.2mm Up to 6000mm

Other stainless steel hollow section grades and sizes are available upon request. You can request to cut your stainless steel hollow sections down to size.
