Structural Aluminum Framing Systems
the STRENGTH of a SIMPLE idea™
Structural aluminum extrusions are made from various types of alloys and created using dies. The extrusion process allows for the creation of continuous, seamless profiles that are cut to desired lengths. The interior of extruded aluminum framing systems has a cross-sectional design that improves structural stability to support heavier loads.
ANGLE-LOCK structural framing features a unique design that eliminates pivot points to maximize profile strength. The self-aligning design creates stronger joints and minimizes misalignment issues, giving you a stable extruded aluminum structure for a variety of applications.
Aluminum Framing Systems for Industrial ApplicationsSteel is a common structural material because of its strength, but aluminum extrusion materials are a comparable alternative. Extruded aluminum framing systems can be used to create a frame or base for a broad range of structures, either indoors or outdoors. ANGLE-LOCK framing is adjustable and easy to reconfigure for use in applications throughout your facility.
Some of the common uses for aluminum framing systems include:
- Machine bases and stands
- Walk-in enclosures
- Material handling systems
- Perimeter safety guards
Benefits of Structural Aluminum FramingAluminum extrusions are lightweight and have an attractive appearance. The material is also easy to fabricate, allowing for more flexible and versatile designs. Customize the look and feel of your extruded aluminum structure with an option of different textures and finishes, including painting or anodizing.
Extruded aluminum meets standards for aesthetics and utility but provides several desirable physical characteristics, including:
- Non-magnetic and non-combustible
- Withstands cold temperatures
- High strength-to-weight ratio
- Reusable and recyclable
