Rectangular Bar

Rectangular Bar refers to a solid metal bar with a rectangular cross-section. Also known as a rectangular rod or flat bar, it is characterized by having two flat and parallel sides, as well as two longer sides forming right angles with the shorter sides.



Rectangular bars can be made from various materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and other alloys. The material choice depends on factors such as strength requirements, corrosion resistance, and the specific application.


The dimensions of rectangular bars are typically specified by their width, thickness, and length. Common dimensions are specified in inches or millimeters.


Construction: Rectangular bars are used in construction for structural components, supports, and framing.

Manufacturing: They are utilized in the manufacturing of machinery, equipment, and other products requiring flat and rectangular components.

Fabrication: Metal fabricators use rectangular bars to create various components, such as brackets, frames, and supports.

Architectural Applications: In architecture, rectangular bars may be used for decorative elements or structural components.

Strength and Versatility: Rectangular bars offer strength and versatility. They can be easily cut, drilled, and welded to suit various requirements.

Welding and Fabrication: Rectangular bars are easily weldable, allowing for customization and fabrication to suit specific project requirements.

Finishes: Rectangular bars can have different finishes based on the material and application. Finishes may include plain (uncoated), polished, painted, or coated for enhanced corrosion resistance.

Seamless vs. Welded: Depending on the manufacturing process, rectangular bars can be seamless or welded. Seamless bars are produced without a seam, while welded bars are created by welding together pieces of metal.
