Custom 12″ x 8″ HSS Spiral Stringer for Spiral Staircase in Utah

We recently spiral bent tube steel 12″ X 8″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR B Spiral the Easy way to a 173” radius for a customer spiral staircase located in Utah. Square and rectangular tubing is also known as HSS (hollow structural steel). Albina has the ability to bend both square and rectangular tubing. For rectangular tubing we can bend both the easy way (against the weak axis) and the hard way (against the strong axis). We can even provide Multi-Plane bending where we are bending both the easy way AND the hard way. Albina is a unique shop in that we can bend very small square materials such as TS ½” x ½” x .049” wall all of the way up to very large materials such as TS 20” x 12” x .625” wall, which happens to be the largest size that mills produce. Albina actually has a larger capacity than TS 20” x 12” x .625” wall, which means we can bend materials larger then what the mills produce!

Structural Steel Bending at Peterson Auto Museum

Albina Co., Inc. bent 36 pieces of 6 5/8″ OD X .375″ wall round steel tubing and 384 pieces of 6″ SCH80 6061-T6 ALUM to create the unique shape for the Peterson Auto Museum in Los Angeles, CA.  Albina cut, bent and trimmed all pieces per the provided drawings. While most of the bent material was covered with the “skin” of the building, the bent steel parts are what gave the museum its’ unique shape and appearance. Every part was slightly different and needed to be processed to very tight tolerances.

The Moda Center is the home of the NBA’s Portland Trailblazers. The bent tube steel was used to create the following letters: O, A, E (2), C, D. In addition to the marquee outside, we also bent to the tube steel that provides the base to the jumbotron scoreboard that hangs above center court.
