The Applications of Steel Pipe in the Workplace

At Wasatch Steel, our products and steel services can be of use across several industries. Steel and its benefits can be useful in a ton of different areas, and we provide the range of materials required for a variety of very different projects.

What are some of these areas when it comes to steel piping specifically? Some won’t surprise you, but there might be a couple others that definitely do. Let’s take a look.


This is probably the most common application of steel in general, including steel pipe or tubing. Not only is steel tubing the most common product for staircase railings, it’s also commonly used as a foundational element as well. It resists rust and corrosion, and can be very aesthetically pleasing in many design situations. Combine this with a high level of strength and durability, and steel tubing is common for everything from wall foundations to smaller connectors.


Steel is the material of choice in the medical industry. In most hospitals and doctor’s offices, everything from railings to surgical tools are generally made from steel. Like with many commercial buildings, the foundation of many of these locations is made using steel tubing as well. Stainless steel is easy to clean and disinfect, and spotting any dirt or contamination is typically far easier than many other materials.


Steel is naturally resistant to caustic materials and corrosion, making it incredibly useful as a transportation method in many industrial fields. It’s common for round steel tubing to be used to transport various liquids and gaseous materials from one area of a facility to another, or over a larger distance between facilities. In addition, when facilities like this have issues within temporary structures that are often used, steel pipe is the first option when reinforcements are required.
