Aluminium is ideal for offshore
Aluminium is lighter than steel and sacrifices no strength. It can cope with the same heavy structural loads and hostile environments as other metals, and extruded component design provides high torsion resistance.
Aluminium design support in offshore and marine
Aluminium is an emerging material in offshore and marine construction. We provide specialist design support and manufacture solutions that are used mainly in structural applications, such as floors, framework, housing modules and helipads.
You can order machined, pre-assembled and finished components that meet your requirements, using our extrusion technology and friction stir welding techniques.
Friction stir welding
With the use of friction stir welding, we can join profiles into panels up to 18 meters long and 3.5 meters wide – giving the word component a whole new meaning.
These aluminium solutions are fire-resistant, strong and durable. In areas with special fire classes, like A60, protective materials such as mineral wool or ceramic fibers are used. Other advantages include:
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- No maintenance
- Specialized alloys
