Perforated Tubing – Our Capabilities

Our Process

At Perforated Tubes, we are a custom manufacturer of perforated tubes based on your specs, needs, and project application. We roll and weld your project’s metal and then perforate your pattern into the tubing. This page should answer any questions about which metal options are available, seam styles you can choose from, calculating your open area, finish & end options, and much more. For more information about individual perforation patterns take a look at our Perforation Specifications page.

* While we are always open to new projects, please be aware that there may beminimum order amount required to work on your project, because of the cost involved with running our equipment small orders may not be economically viable.

* We also only manufacture perforated tubing and do not work with perforated sheet of any sort.
