Building on a comprehensive range of metal bending and fabrication services, Barnshaws Section Benders is now offering a new economical approach for creating channel sections to its customers. The method allows customers to efficiently recycle existing hollow stock to originate a channel section, instead of purchasing new materials outright.

This new service has been introduced due to the frequent requirement for channel sections for construction projects, offering a solution to support this application at reduced cost. To begin the process, square hollow sections (SHS) or rectangular hollow sections (RHS) are accurately cut lengthways, after which the cut sections are straightened on roller machines, to create the finished product.

In addition, as one of the world’s premier beam and extrusion bending specialists, Barnshaws can also precision curve channel sections. An innovative and closely guarded technique is used, which ensures a consistent internal profile during the curving process, preserving the integrity of the section.

Greg North, Commercial Director at Barnshaws commented: “The introduction of this new service was prompted by our customers, who we noticed would typically hold a number of hollow sections in stock. We decided to provide an option to these customers to easily create channel sections from this excess stock, so that the industry has a cost-effective route towards creating these fabrications. Coupling this with our section bending expertise to a wide range of radii, we can offer a full turnkey solution for creating these sections.”

With metal prices prone to fluctuations, cost-effective approaches towards recycling existing stock offers businesses increased options for securing profitability during difficult periods. Furthermore, with a general focus in engineering on promoting the recycling of raw materials, this method offers a more sustainable route towards providing channel sections for the construction projects that demand them.
