When people stroll along pedestrian-friendly boulevards or witness remarkable events, they likely remember the fun street scenes or commanding on-stage performances. Without proper lighting, however, these moments might be far less memorable. More than just providing illumination, lighting conveys atmosphere, sets time and place, expresses the mood, and helps direct attention to what matters most.
Take your lighting application to the next level with high-quality metal bending from Tube-Tec Bending. We are an industry-leading metal beam, bar, tube, and pipe bending service provider that specializes in conventional and custom shapes for challenging applications.
Lighting applications require metal tubing to turn at unique angles for a variety of reasons, from creating aesthetic appeal to supporting heavyweight or oversized fixtures. The hollow nature of tubing is another reason it’s ideal for lighting applications. Wiring can be placed inside the pipe, protecting against unwanted contact.
Transforming metal into intricate shapes shouldn’t be taken lightly, though. Tubing doesn’t bend easily and is hard to manufacture to precise tolerances. The following defects can occur from subpar metal bending processes.
- Wall thinning
Using poorly bent metals for your lighting application has risks. A defect reduces a material’s aesthetic appeal and weakens its structural integrity. Lost structural stability is hazardous and can result in unwanted downtime or lost revenues.
When you need metal bent right and need it done quickly, there’s no better choice than Tube-Tec Bending.

It’s common for the bent casing, piping, and tubing used in lighting applications to bear the weight of heavy and expensive lighting systems. Examples include the lights found in theaters, stadiums, and streets. In these applications, bends need to be on point, and there’s no room for error.
At Tube-Tec Bending, our highly trained personnel utilize industry-leading equipment to create bends with pinpoint accuracy and the utmost quality.
Metal bending is sometimes described as a mysterious process with unavoidable trial and error. If you know what you’re doing, as we at Tube-Tec Bending do, then it’s all science. A successful metal bending process starts with materials from which you work.
Our team of experts has a thorough understanding of material characteristics and knows the best methods of bending them. If you already have an application but aren’t sure which material type works best, we can also help identify an innovative and long-lasting solution. While we can bend just about any metal type, here are examples of materials we use regularly:
