Tube bending companies are not generally the first thing construction contractors think of when they have a problem with fitting building materials together. However, a tube bending company should be one of the first places you go to when you have a structural issue that could be resolved by altering the shape or design of certain parts of a building. Here are three reasons why you might want to contact a tube bending company in the future.
Pipes Do Not Fit the Specifications You Have
You may be staring at your building plans and scratching your head when you discover that several pipes do not fit at the planner or architect expected. When this happens, you will probably contact the planner/architect first, but then you should talk to a design engineer at a tube bending company. The engineer can take a look at your plans and at the pipes that seem to be giving you problems. Then the engineer can determine why you have a problem and order pipes constructed in the company's factory that will best fit your needs.
You Need Modified or Customized Parts
Tube bending companies use extrusion and injection processes to create modified and customized parts. If you cannot find material components that bend at odd angles while still allowing fluid movement or adequately support the structures added to them, then you would talk to a tube bending company to find a better solution. Typically this includes swapping out one material for another (weaker or stronger steel for inflexible titanium, flexible plastic tubing for rigid PVC, etc.) and altering the shape, bend, width or diameter of the parts.
You Have Been Handed a Project with VERY Unique Structural Designs and Unusual Elevations
At times, you may not be able to converse with an architect, or maybe the architect was fired but the project is moving forward with his/her plans. Whatever the set of circumstances, if you have been handed a project with very unique structural designs and unusual elevations, talking to atube bending company about the project might help you get started on the right foot. The company's representatives have probably seen some unique building designs before, and therefore have some construction solutions and options that can help you with this project. At any rate, it would give you some added help in figuring out what materials you can use, how and when to use them, and access to another company that can help you at every odd step of the way.
