Angles made from aluminium are great for both professional and DIY projects, thanks to their strength, lightweight, and corrosion-resistance. From intricate crafts to robust construction, aluminium angles are a versatile choice.

We offer aluminium angles in different sizes, each suited to specific purposes, at Speciality Metals. Aluminum’s lightweight nature makes it a great choice for projects where weight is an issue, and its strength ensures durability. Also, it’s corrosion-resistant, so you can use it indoors and out.

The purpose of this article is to showcase the numerous applications of different sizes of aluminium angles available at Speciality Metals, showing how each dimension can be used optimally in different projects.

Let’s go…

Uses for 19.05mm x 3.175mm Aluminium Angles

Our 19.05mm x 3.175mm aluminium angles are particularly well-suited for projects where precision and finesse are key. Their small size and lightweight make them perfect for:

  • Lightweight Framing: As a result, the frame is ideal for creating frames for small structures, such as photo frames and miniature models, where larger angles would be difficult to achieve.
  • Decorative Trims: With these angles, furniture, artworks, and interior decor can be given an aesthetic touch, providing a sleek, metallic finish that adds a touch of luxury to the overall look.
