Combine aluminium and its alloys with a 90 degree L shape and you have a very good example of a truly ubiquitous multi-purpose material in aluminium angle.

Aluminium angle (90 degree) can be effortlessly rolled and curved, by our dedicated ring rolling equipment, into any number of desired shapes and sizes.

Gentle curves, variations of ellipses, porthole rings, ¼ ½ & ¾ and 360 degree circles are all achievable with our fabrication facilities. Welding or mechanical joining can be employed to extend the length of these curvatures. Additionally, sudden changes of direction can be achieved with different sections being mitred and welded together.

We can also perform similar curving services with other standard geometric forms e.g. aluminium channel, aluminium flat bar and aluminium tee.

There are many factors that decide the choices of building materials for public buildings.

The design issues of form and function are usually taken equally into account. It was Frank Lloyd Wright, the American architect who said, “Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union”.

Suitable materials for public buildings and spaces would need to comply with the following criteria;

  • Cost effective and good value
  • Durable
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Environmentally sustainable
  • Hygienic
  • Fit for purpose
  • Good and appropriate appearance

Perforated Sheet

There are many instances, where aluminium has shown its metal in meeting all of the above considerations.

Aluminium is an incredibly good looking lightweight material (1/3rd weight of steel) with an excellent strength to weight ratio.

One of the first materials that come to mind when thinking of industrial style design is sheet metal.

When visualising cool, funky and edgy interior spaces, untreated aluminium sheet seamlessly integrates with exposed structural elements, brick walls and raw cement surfaces.

Perforated Sheet

Aluminium in the mill (natural) finish compliments many facets of urban and industrial style interiors. Balustrade panels, column enclosures, cladding of vertical bar/counter surfaces are all good application examples for this hygienic and low maintenance metal.

With a variety of aluminium sheet patterns and textures available from our online stock range you can select a particular look that will satisfy specific style needs.

Textured Aluminium

Perforated sheet, with its minimalist credentials, also fits in perfectly with modernist design schemes. Perforated sheets are easy to manipulate and are often used as architectural accents, screening panels and also widely as diffusers to create softened lighting effects.

One of its principal advantages over ferrous metals is that, without the risk of surface corrosion, aluminium’s raw silvery finish will, through wear and tear, develop its own appealing patina.

You can be assured that  among the aluminium sheets on our website you are likely to find some pattern or texture that will help to enhance the look of your next industrial style project.
