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.
Tight Spiral Stringer with almost NO Distortion.
Albina Co., Inc. recently bent the spiral stringers, handrails, second floor guardrails, and observatory guardrails for the Science Community Center Observatory at Modesto Junior College in Modesto, CA.
Albina Co., Inc. recently rolled Flat Bar 3/8″ X 12″ A36 and Flat Bar 3/8″ X 6″ A36 in a helical formation to create a spiral staircase for a Victoria Secret store located in Vancouver, Washington.
Albina is an industry leader in spiral, circular and helical bending. We have the ability to produce steel and metal spiral stringers and staircases. Other ornamental applications include custom handrails, decorative gates and fences, and unique signage.
Albina Co., Inc. bent several structural steel members to help create a beautiful spiral staircase at the very popular Purple Cafe and Wine Bar in Seattle, WA. bent channel (C12 x 20.7#), flat bar (FB 1/2″ x 2″), various sizes of angle (2″ x 1-1/2″ x 1/8″ and 6″ x 3-1/2″ x 5/16″) and rolled plate 1/2″ thick.
Why choose Albina?
• Full range of materials offered (small to large) and all types of material.
• Industry leading distortion
• Stringers bent out of true HSS material (not two pieces of channel or various sections of plate welded together)
• No filler materials used
• Fair pricing
• Unmatched service and attention to detail.
If you require a “spiral” staircase you really need to partner with Albina on your next project. You will be in good hands!
