Tolerances

Dimensional tolerances EN10210: Part 2

Celsius grades are manufactured to the tolerances defined in EN 10210: Part 2. Tighter tolerances are available on request and if you require specific tolerances in excess of this, please contact us.

  Circular/Ellipticals Square/Rectangular
Outside dimension
(D B and H)
Circular ±1% with a min of ±0.5mm and maximum of ±10mm.
Ellipticals ±1% with a min of ±0.5mm (The permitted tolerance is twice the value for H<250)
±1% with a min of ±0.5mm
Thickness (T) -10%
Note: Positive deviation limited by mass tolerance
-10%
Note: Positive deviation limited by mass tolerance
Squareness of side - 90 degrees ±1 degree
External corner profile - 2T max at each corner*
(EN10210 has 3T max)
Concavity/convexity (x) - – ±1% of the side, measured independently
of the tolerance on the outside dimension
Twist (V) Ellipticals: 2mm plus 0.5mm/m max
(The permitted tolerance is twice the value for H<250)
2mm plus 0.5mm/m max.
Section is placed on a flat surface with one end held flat. At the other end the height difference of the two lower corners is taken
Mass (M) ±6% on individual lengths ±6% on individual lengths
Straightness Maximum 0.2% of the total length & 3mm over every 1m length. 
Ellipticals: The permitted tolerance is twice the value for H<250
Maximum 0.2% of total length & 3mm over every
1m length
Length +150mm/-0mm +150mm/-0mm
Out-of-roundness (O) Circular 2% for hollow sections having a diameter to thickness ratio not exceeding 100 -
