Normal bending tolerances for single radius bends are in line with those specified in the National Structural Steelwork Specification.
There are large numbers or standard sections (each with different bending characteristics), there are different methods of bending (hot and cold), and the end-uses vary widely.
|Up To 500||DIA +/- 2.0mm|
