Hollow Sections

Steel Hollow Sections / Box Sections

At SPD we offer a wide range of mild steel box sections. This product is also known as SHS (Square Hollow Section) RHS (Rectangular Hollow Section) and Hollow Section.

These are available as Cold Formed, with an option for Hot Finished upon request through our contact form or Live Chat team.

Mild steel box sections are versatile and suitable for applications such as construction, frames, furniture, transport, security grilles, and general fabrication.

Our wide range of steel box sections for sale are S235 grade, which is known for its good machinability. They can be cut and drilled using appropriate tools. Smaller sections can even be cut with a hacksaw. Their flat edges are efficient for joining and other fabrication processes, and they offer good welding properties.


Mild Steel Box Section Types

There are two types of box section available – Square Hollow Sections, also known as SHS, and Rectangular Hollow Sections, also known as RHS.

If you require sizes not listed on the site, please speak to our Live Chat team, or make use of our contact us forms. We have larger sizes available, but only list the most popular sizes on our website.


Cutting Hollow Sections to Size

Whilst we don't provide cut-to-length services directly on our website, we do offer this service and can offer a range of finishes including bundle and mitre cuts. 

Additionally, we have access to a state-of-the-art in-house laser processing centre of excellence. With 9 3D Lasers we can cut complex parts into many tubular and open sections from 12mm to >500mm on request. Please contact our team for more information.


Delivery of Your Steel Sections

Most of our orders are delivered via our UK wide network of depots on flat bed lorries.  They can also be collected free from your nearest depot.

Please note that if your order is over 100Kg in weight, you will need either a mechanical lift or forklift to offload them. Most orders under this weight requirement can be offloaded by hand. Our delivery drivers are not allowed to help with offloading, so you will need to ensure you have sufficient manpower available.

For large steel orders, or for customers that don’t have the facility to offload themselves, we can provide a quote for a Hiab lorry that will have a mechanical lift to aid in offloading.

If you are unsure, please get in touch and we can go through your options.
