Industrial Tube Ag-Beam is manufactured using either a 1.15mm or 1.55mm Pre Galvanised
base material sourced from New Zealand Steel. It is then shaped into a hollow section with
outside dimensions of 63mm x 37.6mm. The finished product has Tensile Yield strength of
350MPA minimum, and a total Zinc Coat weight of 450 grams per square metre shared over
both external and internal surfaces.
ITM Joiner is also made in two wall thicknesses 1.55mm (Standard) and 1.85mm (Heavy)
with the same performance specifications as Ag-Beam. Both sizes are designed to simply
slide over the Ag-Beam as a connecting sleeve.
Industrial Tube Ag-Beam is normally milled in 5 to 10 metre lengths within a - 0 / +50mm
tolerance. These are packed in bundles of 50 lengths. Shorter lengths and smaller quantities
are available on request but may incur additional surcharges.
ITM Joiners are Precision-cut to 400mm lengths and delivered in palletised bundles. Other
lengths can be manufactured to meet specific requirements, especially where longer Joiners
can provide additional load capacity.
Industrial Tube Ag-Beam is milled monthly February to September with additional mill runs
outside of this period scheduled as required. The Mill Run generally takes place from the 3rd
week of the month with delivery following soon after. Our intention being to complete Mill
Run deliveries before the end of the month.
Between Mill Runs we also hold a stock of Heavy and Standard Ag-Beam in the main lengths
required should the customer require delivery at short notice. Freight for these deliveries
will be charged on a freight recovery basis less our freight rebate.
Wherever possible deliveries will be made direct to site, however access limitations and off-
