Orchard Hire and Sales have 48.3mm outside diameter (O.D.) steel and aluminium scaffolding tube for sale and hire. We also stock smaller and larger gauges of galvanised steel tube for other uses, such as railings.
Stocked sizes of tube are usually available for immediate collection, although it is worth calling in advance to double check availability. For non-stock sizes and any tubes that require cutting to a specific length, some prior notice is required, although small quantities of tubes can typically be cut to your specification while you wait.
