Albina is happy to be teamed up with a very loyal fabricator on the Golden West College Project located in Huntington Beach, CA. Construction of a new 51,969 square foot building at the center of campus will house all student services. A new spiral staircase with landings was required for the new building and the California fabricator new the best choice for this project was Albina.
Never hesitate to contact Albina for any of your steel bending needs. We are your “local” steel bending company no matter where you are located!
Albina was recently awarded a steel bending contract for Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. That is 2,566 miles across the United States! Our customer wanted the steel to be bent correctly, the first time, to high AESS quality standards, so they chose to contract with Albina.
For this project, Albina will be performing some very difficult spiral bending of TS 20″ X 8″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B material. There are a total of 12 spiral bent sections and 6 sections that are bent flat (the easy-way).
Our customer couldn’t afford to make the mistake of using another bending company. They wanted to come to Albina because we have the most experience in the nation with large HSS spiral bending to the highest quality standards.
Albina recently completed the spiral bending of 24 pieces of Tube Steel 14″ X 4″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B the easy way and 10 pieces of Tube Steel 12″ X 3″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B
the easy way for a gorgeous spiral steel staircase at Brickell Academy in Virginia Beach, VA. All of the material for the curved staircase and landing was architecturally exposed structural steel.
Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center is the only nonprofit hospital in Fountain Valley, CA. Albina recently spiral bent and flat bent Tube Steel 16″ X 8″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B to 13’ 6” and 18’ 10” plan view radii the easy way to form the spiral stringers for the staircase. See the installation pictures below. Finished install pictures coming soon!
Enjoy the latest install pictures of the 20” x 8” x .625” wall tube steel which provides the base supports for a heavy weight bearing spiral staircase at the Lakeside Campus in Richardson, Texas. 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 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, but Albina was able to do it to perfection!

Albina Co., Inc. recently spiral bent a piece of tube steel 10″ X 6″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B. This is a very tight spiral bend with a lot of twist….almost NO distortion. With the assistance of an induction heat source, Albina was able to spiral bend the tube steel the Easy way to a 65” center line plan view radius.
