The properties of composites make them the obvious choice for countless structural, electrical, chemical and architectural applications and Kilwell has experience in all of these fields.

If you are seeking carbon or glass fibre tubing for an Industrial application one of the existing several thousand specifications on our files may be suitable, but if not we will be happy to develop a custom design for you using our sophisticated computer design programmes. Our extensive tooling, raw material selection, skilled staff and positive attitude ensure that new inquiries are quickly and competitively converted into finished products with the best possible combination of strength, stiffness, weight and price.

If your tubing requirement is not covered in the information on our site, please detail your needs on our Custom Design form or contact us for more information, design assistance, or a prompt quotation.

Industrial Mandrel Guide

The majority of Industrial tubes are made on parallel mandrels but tapered profiles are often more suitable on products such as Flag Poles and Aerials. Our full range of tapered and parallel mandrels is available for Industrial Tubing applications.
Our parallel mandrel list is below, more mandrel information here.

Custom Design and Build

Custom and partnership design solutions are our speciality and the ability to rapidly apply our diverse design, materials, tooling and manufacturing resources makes Kilwell Fibretube the natural choice to get your project moving without delay.

Although we have a huge number of specifications on file, the versatility of Roll Wrapped composite tubing can provide stiffness and strength precisely where it is required, eliminating excess weight and material costs. Our design software, coupled with long experience, allows us to generate specifications that will meet the physical and cosmetic properties you require with the most cost effective use of materials.

Providing we can use existing mandrel sizes there are no tooling costs, and production runs can be from one-off to thousands of items.

If your tubing requirement is not covered in the information on our site, please detail your needs on our Custom Design form or contact us for more information, design assistance, or a prompt quotation.
