    These retro structure tubes are beautiful to apply in combination with light and is made of extruded acrylic. These white retro structure tubes are by itself already a beautiful lighting fixture. Because of the retro structure on the surface which is opal is a nice light diffusion created.

    Retro stands bringing back designs from the early ages and presenting them with a new look. In recent years, retro has become a huge trend in Europe. The retro structure tube reminds us of Raffia lamps from the 1960’s.

    Stock Retro structure tubes

    We are having a selective amount of retro structure tubes on stock with a diameter of Ø 200 mm with a wall thickness of 3 mm. The full length of these tubes is 2 meter. PyraSied has also satin/opal tubes of acrylic and satin/opal tubes of polycarbonate on stock in various diameters.


    Polycarbonate tubes are mainly used for technical applications because of their impact resistance. The polycarbonate retrostructure is very appropriate for lighting fixtures where impact-resistance is very important. The tubes are mostly used in the lighting industry as a shield around light sources, but also in the process industry.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Can I use retro structure tubes for outdoor applications?

    This opal tube is limited UV stable and that is why we advise to not use these tubes for long-term outdoor applications.

    Can I order samples of tubes?

    It is possible to order samples of clear, satin or opal tubes. These samples are meant to be able to look at the type of tube and its surface. Since we only sell tubes and rods per full length, we do not have residues. That is why it is not possible to order samples of every diameter and wall thickness.
