Square hollow sections (SHS) are considered very versatile due to their physical characteristics. SHS are known as being a particularly sturdy product, as they are less susceptible to bending and can therefore withstand high levels of tension: a so called stress optimized product.
Square and Rectangular Hollow Sections lend themselves to welding, drilling and angled connections thus enabling the building of stable frame constructions. Engineers utilize the sections cavity for fire resistance, incorporating utility lines or increasing weight bearing capacity.
The reduced weight of hollow sections offers an opportunity to maintain low costs, as it simplifies transportation and installation. Hollow sections generally have a smaller surface area which aids in the reduction of coating costs.
Square and rectangular hollow sections are aesthetically pleasing and hence often serve as a design element.
