Metallic tubes are widely used to create all manner of different furnishings, from bed frames to tables and desk chairs. They even appear in your wardrobes and cupboards as railings so you can hang items up. The materials can be decorative or purely functional depending on the design and the requirements.
There are several reasons why metallic tubes are commonly used to create furniture. Primarily they are cost effective, even if they are made from more costly raw materials. On top of this the nature of the tubing means they are typically lightweight, an essential factor when it comes to furnishings.
Possibly the biggest advantage of utilising tubing to create furniture though is the fact that the pieces can be adapted in a variety of ways. For example you can bend a section of tube to make various curved and angled pieces. This allows creativity with designs and means the products can effectively satisfy their needs.
Tubes made from several different materials are employed in furniture manufacturing. Various types of steel are used, including stainless and mild. They are popular because of the low cost, high strength characteristics. Additionally they can be finished in a number of ways including plating and galvanisation to improve the corrosion resistance and aesthetic finish.
Alongside steels, aluminium, titanium, brass, and even copper are all used. The important thing to keep in mind is each material will have its own properties; it is essential the right one is chosen for the product being made.
