Aluminum Profile, the Lightweight Champion

Aluminum Profile, the Lightweight Champion

Where are aluminum profiles suitable?

The possibilities of aluminum profiles

Aluminum profiles are used everywhere where durable and versatile structural material is needed, which simultaneously provides lightness and strength. They can be seen, for example, in

  • building facades, e.g., glass facades of shopping centers,

  • ocean liners,

  • exhibition structures, e.g., trade show booths,

  • transportation vehicles, e.g., vehicle structures,

  • industrial machinery,

  • electronic products,

  • lighting fixtures,

  • window and door frames,

  •  shelf system frames and racks,

  • consumer products, e.g., ladders.

Properties of Aluminum

Aluminum is a lightweight, strong, and corrosion-resistant alternative.

There's a reason why aluminum is used everywhere. The light weight, strength, corrosion resistance, fire resistance, thermal conductivity, as well as easy and cost-effective recyclability of aluminum make it an excellent alternative for many materials.


For example, aluminum is lighter than steel and therefore an attractive option in situations where weight is a crucial factor. For instance, in transportation equipment and vehicle structures, the lightweight nature of aluminum reduces fuel consumption.


Durable and weather-resistant aluminum can also be a good alternative to wood, for example, in exterior cladding or terrace structures, as they do not need to be replaced due to rot.


Aluminum is more durable and stronger than many plastics, so it can replace plastic in industrial parts where durability and strength are needed. As a recyclable material, aluminum is also a more environmentally friendly alternative to plastics.

What Does an Aluminum Profile Solve?

Aluminum Profile – the Unseen Hero of Structures

For most, an aluminum profile appears as a neat trim that is barely noticed as part of a product or structure. However, its inconspicuous appearance conceals several important functions:


1) Supporting and Reinforcing Structures

Aluminum profiles provide a durable frame or support structure for products or structures. They can provide support and increase stability in parts such as windows, doors, railings, and roof structures.

2) Enclosure and Protection

Aluminum profiles can be used to construct various enclosures and covers. For example, electronic devices or lighting fixtures can be placed inside an aluminum profile, keeping components protected and enhancing cooling.


3) Connections and Installation Solutions

A correctly shaped aluminum profile provides an easy way to connect parts and can be part of a handy and durable installation solution.


4) Cooling

Aluminum is a good conductor of heat, so aluminum profiles can be used in cooling solutions, for example in lighting or electronic devices


5) Finished Appearance

Aluminum profiles can seamlessly cover edges, creating a neat and finished appearance.
