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!
We recently spiral rolled 1/2″ and 1″ plate for a custom spiral staircase in a multi-million dollar luxury home on Green Street in San Francisco, California.
We provided the rolled plate for the staircase and then flat plane rolled the plate for the landings. The tightest radius was a 29.75” center line radius.
Albina recently spiral bent several stringers for a state of the art spiral staircase for the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences in Lubbock, Texas. The Lubbock Entertainment and Performing Arts Association (LEPAA) has had the vision for this building since 2013 and broke ground just over a year ago in April 2017. The dance center will contain the entire operation of Ballet Lubbock, including six dance studios, parent and community space, production areas and administrative offices and expected to be complete in early 2020. Check out this website for artist renderings of the building and interior features such as the spiral staircase we bent consisting of:
TS 16″ X 8″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR C
16 pcs: Spiral bend the easy way
Bent down to a 7 ft plan view radius.
TS 10″ X 6″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR C
10 pcs: Spiral bend the hard way
Bend down to a 14’ 11” plan view radius.
On a recent trip to Washington DC, we had the pleasure of touring the Capitol Building and we were able to capture some pictures of The Capital Visitors Center spiral staircase we bent years ago. The project consisted of flat and spiral bending of angle, channel, flat bar, solid square, wide flange (up to W18 x 76#) and square tubing (up to 10″ x 10″ x .500″ wall spiral bent).
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.
Albina rolled the following materials to create a beautiful multi-level steel spiral staircase at the University of Nebraska Business Administration Building. A spiral, circular or helical bend occurs in a plan view with rise in elevation. Steel spiral staircases are architecturally and visually appealing, functional and an effective use of space.
