Square Bar

Square Bar is a type of metal bar characterized by its square cross-sectional shape. It is similar to a flat bar, but instead of having a rectangular cross-section, a square bar has equal width and thickness, forming a square shape.



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


The dimensions of a square bar are specified by its side length, which is the distance between opposite sides of the square. Common side lengths range from a fraction of an inch to several inches, and the dimensions are typically specified in inches or millimeters.


Construction: Square bars are used in construction for various purposes, including structural components, supports, and framing.

Manufacturing: They find applications in the manufacturing of machinery, equipment, and other products where square-shaped components are needed.

Fabrication: Metal fabricators use square bars to create a wide range of components, such as brackets, frames, and supports.

Usage in Ornamental Ironwork: Square bars are often used in ornamental ironwork for creating decorative elements, such as railings, gates, and fences.

Strength and Rigidity: The square cross-section provides strength and rigidity, making square bars suitable for applications where structural integrity is essential.

Finishes: Similar to flat bars, square bars can have different finishes based on the material and application. Finishes may include plain (uncoated), galvanized, or coated for improved corrosion resistance.
