Roll Forming

Metal Sections

Roll forming of metal sections is an area in which BW Industries not only produce a range of standard Z Section, C Section and SFS profiles, but also manufacture bespoke cold rolled steel sections up to a massive 500mm deep and up to a gauge of 6mm.

Top hat sections, anti-vandal wall panels, beams and joists are just some of the roll-formed sections produced from our 114,000 square foot production facility in East Yorkshire.

If we are unable to roll-form the section you are looking for, or the quantities dictate that it is not viable, then we would look at press-forming as an alternative to rolling. Using this method we can form sections up to 9 metres long and and is complimented by our laser and fabrication departments.

We work for blue chip companies and SMEs alike and for sectors from traditional construction to off-site construction and agricultural trades to caravan manufacturers.

We can quickly supply you with competitive quotations and generally supply standard rolled sections within 7/10 working days and would advise the timescales for any bespoke products at the time of your enquiry.

Full and comprehensive systems with all associated ancillaries and fittings manufactured ‘in house’ ensure minimal lead times.

  • Volume production capacity
  • Accuracy through most modern equipment
  • Large ‘gauge range’ capability

We house some of the largest rolling mills in the UK, which have the capacity of producing Z Sections up to 400mm x 4.0mm and C Sections up to 500mm x 6.0mm and all points in between.
