Stadium work relies on tube expertise
A number of high profile stadium projects are currently under way across the UK and Ireland, with many of them using tubular steel sections for the grandstand roofs.
PP ProTube has recently cut and prepped tubes for two new rugby stadiums, the Leicester Tigers new ground and Munster’s Thomond Park Stadium in Cork (pictured).
“Our CNC machines can offer both flame and plasma tube cutting facilities
from 48mm up to 1,016mm diameter with a maximum wall thickness of 50mm,” said Paul Owen, PP ProTube Account Manager.
From its facility in St Helens, Merseyside, the company can also cut lengths of up to 17m which can be handled with a maximum piece weight of 15t.
PP ProTube has also recently profiled tubes for Watson Steel Structures’ prestig- ious Glasgow Transport Museum project.
