What Are Aluminium Round Tubes?

These aluminium profiles are exactly what they sound like. Cylindrical, hollow structures made from aluminium. Due to their lightweight, durable and corrosion-resistant properties, they are an extremely versatile material used across many industries, and our team can cut these round tubes down to required lengths and are available in various diameters and thicknesses.   

Our Aluminium Round Tube Profiles

Below is our wide selection of sizes we fabricate and cut for aluminium round tubes and is one of the most extensive in the UK. No matter what sizes you select, our aluminium products are some of the strongest and lightest profiles available. We recycle all offcuts, or you can choose to have them delivered as well. We also supply aluminium round bars and square bars among our wide range of products.


Great strength to weight ratio


Excellent corrosion resistance


One of the planets most abundant raw materials


Almost infinitely recyclable


Aluminium Round Tube Sizes - Metric and Imperial Systems

If you left school after 1974, you likely won’t use the imperial system for measuring. However, if you work alongside architects, contractors or companies from other countries, you may receive dimensions in feet and inches. By using our conversion table, you can find the imperial dimensions equal to your metric measurement ensuring your aluminium round tube is a precise fit. For more information and detailed diagrams please view our Brochure.

Anodised Aluminium Tubes UK

Take your aluminium round tubes to enhanced levels with our anodising finishing service. The anodising process creates a protective oxide layer on the tube's surface, making it resistant to corrosion and wear. We can also provide coloured finishes during anodising, offering both functional and decorative applications.

 

Applications in UK Industries

Thanks to the metal's amazing properties, aluminium round tubes are widely used across several UK industries including:

 

  • Construction - frameworks and architectural elements
  • Medical - frames for medical devices and sterile, easy to clean surfaces
  • Aerospace - structural components for aircrafts
  • Automotive - lightweight chassis components and heat-resistant tubing for cooling systems

Why Choose Anodised Aluminium?

Just when you think aluminium couldn’t get any better, anodising the metal not only can provide your profiles with a stunning visual and coloured finish, but also enhances insulation, corrosion resistance and durability.

The LA Metals team complete the whole process which includes cleaning, brightening, etching, sealing, dyeing and colouring.

What can aluminium round tubes be used for?

Medical equipment

Marquees

Sports equipment
