Home » What Can Aluminium Angle Be Used For?
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.
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.
Aluminium trim can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
There are a few different ways to cut aluminium trim, but some common methods include:
It’s important to wear safety equipment such as safety glasses, gloves and proper clothing when cutting any metal product.
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.
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.
