Aluminium extrusions are hugely versatile, lightweight (about one third the weight of steel), high strength, modern materials which retain their properties over a long life. Being naturally corrosion resistant and requiring only minimal routine maintenance, they also retain their aesthetic appeal over the lifetime of the material.
For extruded profiles, the material has great ‘formability’ characteristics making the most complex shapes achievable and then subsequently making the machining and joining together of multiple extrusions a very straightforward process.
These innate qualities make aluminium extrusions the perfect material for a host of finished products and applications, from materials for the home and office - including windows, doors, lighting tracks, awnings, balustrades, tables and chairs to solar panels and exhibition stands.
At the end of their life, aluminium products can be recycled again and again without any loss of quality and, as the re-melting of aluminium requires little energy, 95% of the energy required for primary aluminium production is saved through recycling.
