Q:     What is the length of Form-A-Tube® panels?

A:     The standard length of each panel is 4-ft (48 inches) for ease of shipment and storage.  Please contact us for ordering longer panels.

Q:     How can you make taller tubes with 4-ft long strips?

GA:     You can create longer forms by using panels of different length and staggering the elevation where panels are connected. For example, to make a 10-ft tall, 12-inch diameter tube, you need 15 Form-A-Tube® panels. Of these, three panels will be cut in half to 2-ft long. This results in 12 panels @ 4-ft long and 6 panels @ 2-ft long. On the first group, closest to the ground, the length of the panels will be in order: 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 2 feet. At the middle elevation, all six panels will all be 4-ft long. The top elevation panels will be in order: 2, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4 feet.

Q:     What diameter is Form-A-Tube® available in?

A:     The Form-A-Tube® panels are 6.28 inches wide.  This allows you to build tubes of any even diameter size.  For example, 5 panels will make a diameter of 10 inches, 6 panels will make a diameter of 12 inches, and so on.

Q:     Are Form-A-Tube® panels resistant to UV rays?

A:     Yes. Form-A-Tube® is manufactured with PVC that has been treated with UV protective additives to offer a long service life for the system.
