What Can Aluminium Angle Be Used For?

Aluminium Angle Bar Lifestyle Use

We recently added aluminium angle iron to our ever-expanded range of products. So we thought that we would write a quick summary that may answer some of your questions.

An aluminium angle is a type of structural aluminium shape formed by two perpendicular legs and a 90-degree angle between them. As well as providing support and stability to structures, it is also used as a frame and bracket material. In addition to being lightweight, strong, and resistant to corrosion, it can be used for a wide variety of applications. Moreover, it’s easy to cut, bend, and weld, which makes it ideal for a variety of applications.

Is Aluminium Angle Strong?

In construction and other applications, aluminium angle is a strong, lightweight material. Aluminium alloy gives it durability and weather resistance, which makes it corrosion-resistant. While the strength depends on the specific alloy and thickness of the material, it is generally regarded as a durable and strong option.

What Can Aluminium Angle Be Used For?

Aluminium trim can be used for a variety of purposes, including:

  1. Framing: It can be used as a structural element in framing and in constructing racks, shelves, and other storage solutions.
  2. Bracing: Our costumers have used as a brace to provide additional support and stability to structures and equipment.
  3. Trim: Often used as a decorative trim element for architectural and design purposes.
  4. Ductwork: Can be used as a component in air duct systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
  5. Transportation: Can be used in the construction of trailers, RVs, and other vehicles.
  6. Marine: Can be used in marine and boating applications, such as in the construction of boat trailers and dock construction.
  7. Industrial: Commonly used in industrial settings for a variety of purposes, such as in the construction of machinery and equipment.

How To Cut Aluminium Angle

There are a few different ways to cut aluminium trim, but some common methods include:

  1. Using a metal cutting saw: This is the most precise method and will give you a clean, straight cut. A metal cutting saw can be powered by electricity or by hand.
  2. Using a hacksaw: This is a less precise method, but it will work in a pinch. A hacksaw is a hand-held tool with a thin blade that is used to cut metal.
  3. Using a metal cutting blade on a circular saw: This is another method that will give you a clean, straight cut. A circular saw is a power tool that uses a spinning blade to cut through a variety of materials, including metal.
  4. Using a cutting torch: This method is typically used for larger pieces of aluminium angle, and it involves heating the metal with a flame and then cutting it with a saw or other cutting tool.

It’s important to wear safety equipment such as safety glasses, gloves and proper clothing when cutting any metal product.

Can You Bend Aluminium Angle?

Yes, it can be bent with the use of a brake press or other metal-bending equipment. The specific method and degree of bend will depend on the thickness and grade of the angle, as well as the desired final shape.

How To Join Aluminium Angle

There are several ways to join aluminium angle, including welding, bolting, and gluing. The best method will depend on the specific application and the equipment and materials you have available.

Welding is a strong and durable option, but it requires specialized equipment and skills. You can also use bolts to join the trim by drilling holes and attaching with nuts and washers. Gluing can also be used, but it may not be as strong as welding or bolting.

It’s also important to consider the size and weight of the angle you are joining, as well as any potential stress or load that will be placed on the joint. If the joint will be under heavy stress, welding or bolting will be a better option than gluing.
