Barnshaw Section Benders have just supplied a curved pipe that formed the stem of a flower design in the Chelsea Flower Show starting on 21st May.
The Chelsea Flower Show is attended by the royal family on opening day every year as it is one of the biggest and most prestigious flower shows in the UK and has been held in Chelsea since 1913. The show features innovative outdoor living areas and garden ideas to try at home.
Barnshaws was awarded with this creative project due to the benders’ innovative recommendation to have the pipe induction bent to benefit from minimum ovality.
The job consisted of curving 5’’ NB SCH 40. Barnshaws induction (hot) bent the stainless steel pipe to achieve S-bend with 600 x 690 radius.
Barnshaws hot bending capacity range is very impressive and includes tubes up to 711mm (28″ x 30mm thick), rectangular hollow section up to 500 x 300, square hollow sections up to 500 x 500, beams up to 610 wide and channels up to 430 wide. No other company in the world offers such a range of sections and unusual forms.
