Where architects and builders are concerned, appearance and design appeal are often equally as important as more practical considerations. Technical Tubes' appreciation of these differing criteria has given them an intimate understanding of the needs of this particular sector.

Business and Pleasure
Hand rails and balustrades have been manufactured by Technical Tubes Ltd on a numerous occasions. Therefore, it came as no  surprise to be contracted for their supply on the ambitious development at Tower Park, Poole.

The polished stainless steel tubes (in sizes from 1" to 2" o/d) were produced in a variety of shapes, the order being completed over a six month period.

Westbury Homes Signs Up
Where well-known property developers Westbury Homes were concerned, the brief to Technical Tubes was to produce high-quality, aesthetically appealing tubing which would form the basic 'structural skeleton' of all their corporate signage at the company's sites nationally.

The two companies first came together because of Technical Tubes' ability to do a very specific job, at a very competitive price - these being the deciding factors in Westbury's decision to award them the contract.

Since that time, Technical Tubes have produced hundreds of 3" and 2" tubes with perforated mesh in-fills.

Step-by-Step to Excellence
Exterior staircases may be something of an architectural rarity these days, but when Technical Tubes was approached by a local builder to form some fifty balustrades, they met with the usual positive response.

The CHS steel tubing in 48.3mm and 60.3mm diameters was produced on time, and within budget. These fixtures are now adding an uncommonly traditional appeal to the steps and landings of the Dorset properties.

Back to the Steam Age
Perhaps one of the more unusual requests Technical Tubes have received recently came from architects Sargent & Potiriadis, who were designing a major leisure facility in Bracknell, Berkshire.

Included in the imaginative plans was one of the largest steam rooms in the UK, and Technical Tubes' task was to bend and drill low carbon stainless steel tubing which would emit steam from beneath the seats of the fortunate (or otherwise!) patrons.
