Cold Formed Rectangular Hollow Section, or CFRHS, are a popular form of commercial steel, known for their versatility and usability across a range of different sectors, especially the construction and manufacturing industry where they are often used as pillars. What distinguishes CFRHS pipes is that they are cold-formed, unlike Hot Fformed Rectangular Hollow Section, or HFRHS pipes.

CFRHS pipes have a hollow, rectangular shape that makes them well-suited for a variety of structures. Huddinge Stål stocks CFRHS pipes in steel.
CFRHS pipes are usually made from carbon steel and are processed through a variety of methods, such as cold rolling, welding, and bending. This results in a strong and durable profile that can be used to build everything from retaining walls and fences to complex industrial frames.

Several factors distinguish CFRHS pipes from other commercial steels. They are relatively easy to process and shape, making them an ideal choice for customized projects. The advantages of CFRHS pipes over the HFRHS pipes include a better surface finish and lower production cost. Historically, the disadvantage of CFRHS pipes has stemmed from residual stresses in the material that can create problems, such as during welding.

Common uses for CFRHS pipes range from construction projects like fences, railings, retaining walls, and roof trusses, to industrial frames. They are also used in the manufacturing industry to create everything from shelving systems and storage solutions to various types of frameworks.

​​​CFRHS pipe dimensions:


CFRHS pipes are flexible in terms of design and shape.

We at Huddinge stål offer quality assignments in cutting, welding, and painting of CFRHS pipes.

CFRHS pipes are cut with the help of band saws and circular saws. We have optically controlled cutting machines that enable finely cut details. We deliver forged subjects in various shapes and qualities.

We cut and clip to the dimensions and angles you need for your CFRHS pipes. We also offer welding of CFRHS profiles according to your wishes.

At Huddinge stål, we have access to IWS competence for welding supervision for EXC2 entirely in accordance with SS EN 1090-2.

We also carry out painting of structures with a length of up to 22 meters and a width of up to 4 meters. The painting takes place in Huddinge, and we do both priming and painting, class 1 to 5.


CFRHS pipes 50x50, 60x60, and 70x70 are the most common dimensions for lighter applications. For coarser applications, 100x100 and above are more common. The dimensions for CFRHS pipes are given in Width x Height x Wall Thickness. See all the dimensions we offer in the CFRHS table.

The difference between CFRHS and HFRHS has to do with the manufacturing process. HFRHS pipes are usually made from HFRHS pipes that are then stress-relieved to reduce the stresses in the material. This leads to significant mechanical differences between HFRHS and CFRHS pipes.
