To ensure that we consistently deliver aluminium extrusions to the highest possible quality
standards, we source our aluminium billet only from three of the world’s leading suppliers,
Emirates Aluminium, Dubai Aluminium and Hydro Aluminium.
The quality of the aluminium extrusion is dependant on the quality of the alloy used, and so we use only 6000 series aluminium alloys - specifically, 6005A / 6060 / 6063 / 6063A and 6082 tempered to designations T4 to T6. 6000 series alloys provide the perfect combination of strength, hardness, durability and corrosion-resistance – even in marine environments - and are the most widely-used alloys in extrusion and are ideal for structural extrusions and machining.
Used in a wide range of industrial sectors, including the construction industry, 6000 series alloys are found in a wide range of applications including window and door profiles, lighting, awnings, handrails and furniture.
The 6082 alloy in particular offers the highest strength of any of the 6000 series and is frequently used for load carrying structures in shipping, transport, building and offshore industries, as well as for platforms, bridges, scaffolds and handrails.
Our extrusions conform to the relevant British Standards to our customer's requirements. Covering the mechanical property limits, tolerances and temper designations of aluminium extrusions as well as the testing requirements.
Our market-leading, in-house tensile testing facility is able to meet customers’ specific requirements and to test to whatever standards are requested. If required, we are also able to offer external, independent testing by Zurich Laboratory Services, a UKAS registered testing facility.
Our quality procedures and management systems are all maintained in accordance with the following standards:
|ISO 9001:2008||Quality Management Systems|
|ISO 14001:2009||Environmental Management Systems|
|ISO 18001:2007||Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems|
