agree  Thomas Deschington: The Norwegian dictionary Formatics gives "hollow section" for "hulprofil". Seems like you're right on track.

  -> Thanks

agree  brigidm: Though I got a lot of hits with "hollow profiles" + columns + "hat profiles", so maybe profiles may be more accurate?

  -> I googled hollow profile and hollow section. I definitely think hollow section is more correct.

agree  Roald Toskedal: Definitely "hulprofil". The most common English name for these is "RHS- Rectangular Hollow Section"
