Steel hollow structural sections (HSS) offer engineers numerous advantages when they design. Not only do HSS deliver exceptional torsional resistance and compressive strength, they also have less surface area than open sections and can weigh less in many applications, reducing project costs. Plus, HSS are aesthetically pleasing and are readily available in a wide range of sizes.

Big plans need big tools to make a reality — tools like Atlas Tube Jumbo HSS, the largest HSS made in the world. Designed to support the longest spans and most extreme loads, jumbo HSS offer unbeatable efficiency, with strength-to-weight ratios that wide-flange sections can’t match. That means you can build taller and wider while saving tonnage and making the best use of space. So start planning big things today. Atlas Tube is ready to help bring those plans to life.
