Aluminum Square Tubing
Aluminum square tubing is an extruded product with a large number of uses in all types of fabrication and building projects due to its light weight, relative strength and superior resistance to corrosion, among other favorable qualities. Produced in 6063 and 6061 alloys, aluminum square tubing features defined square corners on both the inside and outside radius.
Also referred to as architectural aluminum, box tubing or structural tubing, 6063 aluminum square tubing features a finish that looks good as-is, since it's far smoother than most other available alloys for the purpose, and it can also be more easily anodized. The ease with which it can be formed also makes 6063 aluminum one of the most joinable alloys available -- an excellent choice for projects requiring lighter weight material including ornamental structures, frames, shelves, racks and trailers.
6063 aluminum square tubing is the lower-strength choice among the two available alloys. It's generally produced in sizes that accommodate thinner wall design and it features better resistance to corrosion and better finishing qualities than 6061, which offers greater strength and is ideal for structural applications. 6063 aluminum square tubing is easy to weld, cut and machine, so it is frequently used in gates, handrails, frame work, support columns, protective barriers and fencing.
