Motorsport UK & FIA Approved Bendable Roll Cage & Chassis Tubing 
1.500" x 16swg

Lengths of tube can vary between 5.5-6 metres.

Certified Roll Over Protection Tube has been created to serve clubman motorsport and other projects that may need to meet MSA regulations, specifically designed to construct roll cages, roll over hoops, racecar chassis, suspension components and motorcycle frames. 

Carbon based cold drawn seamless steel tubing with a tensile and yield strength up to 35% higher than standard mechanical CDS and an elongation figure of more than twice standard mechanical CDS. The 25%+ minimum elongation figure for this tubing is the most impressive and critical figure for use in cages and motorcycle frames as elongation is the amount of force needed to stretch the tubing a given distance and reflects the quality of bend that will be achieved.

Standard CDS will have elongation tolerances between 5% and 13%. If the batch is 13% then the bend quality will be fairly if used with a goof quality draw bender such as a JD Squared Machine or electric equivalent. If your steel mill supplies a batch with a low elongation figure, the bend will look poor regardless of which tube bender is used as the material will not be able to stretch on the outside or shrink on the inside. The result will be a flat Cobra neck shaped bend.

The figures for this certified roll cage tubing exceed the MSA bluebook regulations and are used by the FIA for use in their roll over, crash impact and safety cell tests:

  • Tensile Strength : 510 N/mm2 minimum
  • 0.2% Yield Strength : 370 N/mm2 minimum
  • Elongation : 25% minimum.
  • Carbon based. Mild steel lugs, brackets and plates can be welded direct to tubing
  • High Tensile and Yield strength
  • High Elongation properties for forming
  • Stencilled for Identification
  • Supplied with Traceable Receipt and Mill Certificates

Shipping for this oversize product is with Tuffnells and takes 1-2 days for delivery.

If ordering more than 5 lengths or more than one tube size in the same order, please call us on 01509 812171.

Please note:

Please triple check your tube diameter & gauges (wall thickness, mm) are correct as it costs over £85+VAT to have an incorrect shipment swapped.
