Aluminium angle is a commonly used material for stair nosing, which provides a protective edge for the front of stairs and helps to prevent slip and trip hazards. Stair nosing made from aluminium angle is durable, low maintenance, and often has a non-slip surface to increase safety. It can be easily cut to size and shaped to fit the specific requirements of each staircase.
To make aluminium angle into stair nosing, you’ll need the following steps:
Note: You may also want to consider adding a non-slip surface to the nosing to improve safety.
Aluminium angle can be strong, but its strength depends on the specific alloy and thickness of the material. Generally, aluminium alloys with higher strength properties, such as 6061 and 6063, are used in structural applications. However, aluminium angle still has lower strength compared to iron and steel.
An aluminium angle bar is a specific type of metal stock that is L-shaped and made from aluminium. These bars are available in various sizes and are commonly used in various construction, manufacturing and fabrication applications due to aluminium’s properties, such as being lightweight, corrosion-resistant and having a good strength-to-weight ratio.
Yes, aluminium angle bars can be welded, but it requires special equipment and skills. Aluminium has a lower melting point than steel, and it can be more difficult to weld without causing warping or burning. It is recommended to use a TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welder and a filler rod suitable for the aluminium alloy being used. Proper cleaning of the surface to remove any oxide layer is also essential before welding, as the oxide layer has a higher melting point than the aluminium itself and can cause issues during welding.
Select the Proper Welding Method: TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is the most common and recommended method for welding aluminium. MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding can also be used, but it is generally considered more challenging and less precise than TIG welding.
Select the Proper Filler Material: Choose a filler rod that is compatible with the aluminium alloy you are welding. For example, a 5356 aluminium filler rod is commonly used for welding 6082 aluminium as well as 4043 and 5183, but consult the manufacturer’s recommendations or a welding guide to select the appropriate filler material for your specific alloy.
Clean the Surface: Aluminium forms a thin oxide layer on its surface, which has a higher melting point than the aluminium itself. This oxide layer must be removed before welding. Use a stainless steel brush (one that has not been used on any other metal) to scrub the surface of the aluminium and remove the oxide layer. Also, make sure to clean the aluminium with acetone or another solvent to remove any oil, grease or other contaminants.
Preheat the Aluminium: Preheating the aluminium can help reduce the risk of cracking. Use a propane torch or a heat gun to preheat the aluminium to around 300-400°F (150-200°C). Be careful not to overheat the aluminium, as it has a relatively low melting point.
Set Up the Welder: Set up the TIG welder according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Make sure to use pure argon as the shielding gas. Set the amperage according to the thickness of the aluminium. A general rule of thumb is 1 amp for every thousandth of an inch of thickness (e.g., 125 amps for 1/8 inch thick aluminium).
Tack Weld the Pieces: Before doing the full weld, tack weld the pieces of aluminium together at various points along the joint. This will help hold the pieces in place and reduce warping during the full weld.
Weld the Joint: Begin welding along the joint. Move the torch along the joint at a steady pace, adding filler material as needed. It is important to keep the weld pool clean and free of contaminants, so make sure to frequently clean the tip of the filler rod and the tungsten electrode.
Allow the Aluminium to Cool: After welding, allow the aluminium to cool slowly. Do not quench the aluminium in water, as this can cause cracking.
Clean and Inspect the Weld: After the aluminium has cooled, clean the weld area with a wire brush to remove any oxidation. Inspect the weld for any cracks, porosity or other defects.
