Tube Steel Spiral Stringers Provide Support for Heavy Weight Bearing Spiral Staircase

Albina recently bent tube steel 20” x 8” x .625” wall which will provide the base supports for a heavy weight bearing spiral staircase.  The tube steel was spiral bent the easy way using our induction heat source and increment bend method. The tube steel was bent down to a 7’ 7” center line (plan view) radius and all bends were to AESS standards.

Albina also bent tube steel 20” x 12” x .625” wall for a different section of the spiral staircase.  The tube steel was spiral bent the easy way also using our induction heat source and increment bend method.  The 20″ x 12″ material was bent down to a 13’ 9” center line (plan view) radius and all bends were to AESS standards.

The specifications to bend to a center line radius this tight is almost unheard of!  Albina was able to bend per the customers specifications and provide an exceptional quality product!

Curved Steel Wide Flange Bent to an Extremely Tight Radius

We have done it again! Albina continues to “Bend the Rules” of the steel bending process to continue to provide bends that are extremely difficult to our customer base. Albina recently rolled wide flange W8x24# the hardway to a 4 foot inside radius to AESS standards! This is an extremely tight radius to bend to and our operators bent it to perfection!
