The extrudability of aluminium means that it is easily formed into custom shapes which is why it is ideal for this type of application. It is also light in weight which makes installation easier.
Aluminium extrusion lends itself to this particular application as aluminium is lightweight but strong and durable, offering the same strength as structural steel with increased payload.
Aluminium was an ideal material of choice as it is resistant to corrosion, easy to fabricate and install and offers excellent aesthetics.
Aluminium extrusions form the 1.5 mile sea defense handrail. Extrusions can provide virtually unlimited opportunities for adapting product shapes.
We supplied mill finished aluminium extrusions for the roller doors which were then powder coated and finally foiled in a variety of wood grain finishes, with 40 extrusions making up each garage
“We are keen to support our engineers of the future, and educate them on the advantages that aluminium can offer: High strength-to-weight ratio, excellent formability, and easy and economic recyclability.”
Aluminium extrusions can be used in practically all businesses, products and environments. And can be a substitute for steel, copper, plastic or wood.
We have published an aluminium extrusion design manual, providing professionals involved in the development of new and existing products with a guide to practically all there is to know about aluminium extrusions and the properties they offer as a design material.
