We offer our customers a range of cast and extruded products, and also custom sizes made to order on request. Our material is 2.2 certified and can be 3.1 certified if required.

Plastics vs Alloys

Plastics offer a viable alternative for use in engineering applications when compared to commercial alloys. Over recent years, the engineering landscape has changed. Engineering plastics are now commonly used in light-weighting applications or where good weight to stiffness ratios are required. Availability is also a critical aspect - the thermoforming process in plastic production is much quicker when compared to alloy production. Therefore, improved lead times and a reduction in production costs compared to performance alloys is the result.


We cut your hollow plastic sections to length, either at our central operations warehouse in Biggleswade or at one of our 14 UK service centres. By offering a UK wide service centre network, we provide our customers with expertise and service on their doorstep.

We stock Plastic Hollow Sections in a variety of grades.

Our knowledgeable staff and resident metallurgists will be pleased to assist you further on any technical topic. Smiths Metal Centres Limited also boasts an in-house UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory which is unique within the multi-metal and plastic stockholding sector. We believe this underlines our total commitment to quality and our ethos of being the complete service provider.
