Fiberglass Price List

Max-Gain Systems, Inc. carries a complete line of fiberglass , including fiberglass round tube, square tube, and solid rod. Most of our product line is designed to “sleeve ” inside adjacent sizes, allowing almost any custom length and wall thickness, while at the same time retaining the ability to be shipped via FedEx! Be sure to see our new fiberglass push-up masts! We are quite unique in that we sell our wide product line in small (even single piece!) retail quantities, which allows individuals and hobbyists, as well as industry prototyping research personnel to economically try multiple possibilities before buying larger quantities.

Max-Gain Systems, Inc. is a wholesale supplier of fiberglass tube and rod to many of the best-known names in antenna manufacturing, both in the ham radio and military markets. We supply more fiberglass to more antenna manufacturers than any company in the world. We also supply fiberglass to many other industries and uses, such as ultralight aircraft, tool handles, tents, driveway markers, towed aircraft banners, electrical utilities, universities, national laboratories, concrete reinforcement, hinge pins, recreational vehicles, and the inventor with an idea for a new product. We are a unique source for sleeving adjacent sizes, in stock, and in even single piece quantity for prototyping! No need to pay for mill-runs just to see if a prototype will work. Our contacts and relationships allow us to provide superior product at lower cost than a single commercial user dealing direct with a single factory. Let us quote on your needs!

We can research and locate fiberglass products needed for your manufacturing, and in many cases suggest alternate or lower-cost solutions. Quantities for wholesale price breaks can be surprisingly small, and custom colors and lengths are possible as well.

QUAD SPREADERS: We offer telescoping, Quad Spreaders with usable lengths up to a total of 26 feet! Telescoping Quad Spreaders are discounted from individual piece prices! See our Quad Spreader offerings for details.

QUANTITY DISCOUNTS: Buying ten or more quantity of one size of fiberglass qualifies for a 10% quantity discount on that item. Quad spreaders are NOT discounted further, as they are already discounted from individual piece prices.

WHOLESALE/OEM PRICING: If you are a reseller or manufacturer, you may qualify for our factory-direct, wholesale/OEM pricing! SUBSTANTIAL savings are possible with increasing volume, and our customer service is unsurpassed. Email us for quantity pricing.

CONSTRUCTION ADVICE: Available free by telephone. For almost unlimited life, we highly recommend that any fiberglass – even ours which is UV-stabilized – be painted. A sprayed primer coat and flat-black top coat, works best. (See our Max-Tips Info Sheet for details.)

PAYMENT AND SHIPPING: Our online store provides a secure way for you to make online purchases using your credit card of choice and save that information for your next order! Our store will also quote multiple shipping options for any and every order. For customers with their own shipping accounts, email us or call us at 770-973-6251 to let us know.

 

Duties, customs charges, VAT, and / or  brokerages fees, (if any might apply for your country) are impossible for the shipper to determine, and are ALWAYS the responsibility of the purchaser. International customers agree to pay any and all additional charges that may be billed to cover these items.


CUSTOM CUTTING

We frequently get questions from customers, asking if we can cut our fiberglass (most of which is stocked in 8 foot lengths) before shipping. You can easily add a cutting service to any fiberglass order line item to cut our standard lengths in half for $1.00, into thirds for $2.00, or into quarters for $3.00. Leave us a note with your order as you check out to specify which line item is to be cut, one fiberglass line item per cutting service. Other fiberglass line items in your order will not be cut unless you add another cutting service line.

We do offer custom cutting of our stocked tube and rod lengths. Either for getting you under the oversize shipping dimensions or if your project requires certain lengths, we can cut it to length. Cutting is available for a small charge of $1.00 per cut. We bundle ordered goods to minimize overall cuts and only charge for cuts made. For custom cutting: simply tell us your cutting instructions in the “comments” section of our secure online order form, email us, or call us at 770-973-6251.

*****On whole sale / OEM quantity orders  ($400 minimum order) of round tube and round solid rod that we can ship direct from our factory, there is NO CHARGE for cutting.

Tolerances:  At our retail warehouse, we do “rough cuts” only, with best tolerance of 1/8 inch. At the factory we have far more elaborate diamond saws, and can easily cut to tolerances of 1/16 inch at no extra charge. Tighter tolerances ARE possible from the factory, but usually carry additional charges.  (Inquire) Let us quote on your needs!

If you want to cut our fiberglass yourself, here are a few helpful notes:

A fine-toothed hacksaw will do the job on very small quantity jobs. Be certain to support the back side of the tube / rod when cutting through to avoid splintering of the fiberglass as the blade comes through the back.  Rest the fiberglass on a piece of scrap wood at the point of the cut. Also, a wrap of masking tape at the cut point also helps.  Also support the piece of fiberglass level with the cut all along its length. You do not want the ends to fall down as the cut nears completion, splintering the last few strands of fiberglass on the back side of the cut.

Fiberglass Cutting

Do not breathe the fiberglass dust.  It is a good idea to cut outdoors. Use a good protective mask.

If you have the equipment, a far better cutting method is by use of a power miter saw or “chop saw” with an abrasive blade.  These tools will give you a perfect, square, smooth cut every time. NEVER use a toothed blade. The finer the abrasive on the abrasive cutting blade, the nicer the resulting cut, but the cut will also take longer than with coarser blades. Even the very common (and cheap) “metal cutting” or ceramic / concrete cutting abrasive blades that fit these tools will work fine, and they are commonly available at Home Depot and other home improvement and hardware stores.

In all cases, use care when cutting, use breathing protection, and cut outdoors where possible. If you are not knowledgeable in the use of these types of tools, seek professional help / advice, or leave it to the pros!
