Curved Pipe for Oak Harbor Wind Sculpture in Bellingham, Washington

We partnered with Architectural Elements, a specialty metals fabrication shop in Bellingham, Washington to create this wind sculpture for the city of Oak Harbor. Albina bent 3½” SCH40 A53B ERW WHEELED- 10 lengths x 42 feet for the project. The sculpture was designed by Architectural Elements design engineer, Kyle Thomas and the photos below are © 2018 by Melissa Marteny.

Helical, Elliptical and Parabolic Bent 3-1/2″ Sch40 Steel Pipe for Wind Sculpture

A customer recently called us and asked if we were ready for a difficult steel bending project out of 3½” Sch40 pipe.  The project was for a Wind Sculpture in Oak Harbor Washington.  The designer was hopeful that the material could be bent to countless radii and configurations.  Some of the radii are elliptical, some bends are compound, some bends are helical bent, the list goes on.  Once Albina reviewed the drawings we jumped at the opportunity to perform.  The experts at Albina make the seemingly impossible bending projects, possible.
