Corus Tubes has expanded its range of Celsius Hot Finished Structural Hollow Sections (SHS) by adding a number of elliptical sections. The Celsius 355 Ovals range extends the choice available to designers. They have minimal residual stresses, excellent welding capability, good performance in compression, high loading capacity and a reduced exposed coating area. Oval sections are produced to meet the mechanical properties, chemical composition and dimensional requirements to EN 10210 S355 J2H. Celsius Ovals have a two-to-one ratio of major to minor axes and are produced in sizes from 150 x 75mm to 500 x 250mm. Each of the Celsius Oval sizes is available in a range of tube-wall thicknesses, giving varying structural properties for a constant external dimension. This gives consistent aesthetics while maintaining structural efficiency.
