Atlas Tube’s ASTM A500 hollow structural sections (HSS) provide structural support for common load-bearing applications. They are widely available in many sizes, shapes and wall thicknesses at service centers throughout North America.
ASTM A500 HSS are cold-formed, welded and seamless carbon steel structural elements in buildings, bridges and other load-bearing applications. Atlas manufactures squares, rectangles and rounds.
All shapes feature excellent compression and support characteristics, as well as superior torsional resistance, making HSS particularly well-suited to all types of column applications. The torsional strength of HSS also ensures their performance as bracing and perimeter members. Connection information is now widely available for applications — just ask Atlas Tube.
