Outside of the communications and agricultural industries, there are many other applications of the Allied Tube and Conduit® product.

Vehicle FramesVehicle Frames

Allied’s Gatorshield® steel tubing product is ideal for vehicle frame bodies since it is manufactured with a heavier layer of zinc. In addition to providing added corrosion protection, the Allied products offer better strength characteristics. This enables manufacturers to investigate lighter gauge steel which results in lower assembled frame weight. Allied’s clear top coat and 99.99% pure SHG zinc allows for easy welding which is another added benefit for vehicle frame manufacturers.

Garage DoorsGarage Doors

With over 20+ years in the garage door market, Allied’s steel tubing has been the mainstay with best-in-class performance. Our Flo-Coat product is used to manufacture torsion bars and provides advanced levels of corrosion protection along with higher strength than competitive products in the market today. The result is a cleaner tube that performs better and lasts longer.

Marine Solutions

The Gatorshield® steel tubing product is defined by quality and consistency and is specifically manufactured with a unique combination of strength and advanced corrosion protection. Recognized as the industry leader, Gatorshield® tubing protects against the highly corrosive marine environments and is the longstanding product of choice in the industry.

Material Handling

Allied Tube and Conduit® provides precision fit steel tubing for improved bearing mount by controlling the inside diameter. Our tubing can be engineered from the “inside-out” which results in the tolerance variation moving to the outside diameter. This ensures a precision bearing fit and a more consistent roller. Allied is the industry expert having sold over 30 million feet of tubing for roller conveyors.


playgroundsKeep the playground safe with the added protection of Allied’s in-line galvanized steel tubing. Our Flo-Coat steel tubing, which is CPSIA compliant, will resist flaking and chipping with advanced corrosion protection while allowing easy formability. By utilizing Flo-Coat as the substrate material your powder coated playground products will have a greater resistance to corrosion if exposure does occur. With over 20 years of experience in the commercial playground market, Allied tubing has demonstrated best-in-class performance.
