What would come to mind if you were asked to describe typical uses for corrugated aluminium?  Many would probably begin thinking about various external applications, including cladding for industrial buildings, retail sheds and other similar utilitarian uses.

However, as an alternative to large sized industrial style corrugations Gooding Aluminium have developed specialised tooling for producing a variety of miniaturised equivalents with both curved and flat topped patterns.

Lightweight and eye-catching the GA Anolight range of diminutive corrugated profiles adds a contemporary and elegant twist to all kinds of interior spaces. Flexible Anolight can be installed with its pattern running either horizontally or vertically.

The combination of Anolight’s fixing adaptability with its modern good looks makes it just right for the exhibition, leisure and retail sectors. Being such a lightweight product (2.74 kg/m2) makes it is so easy to handle, shape and fit on site.

However Anolight panels are not just about being visually attractive. There’s also much more than a hint of ‘steel’ in the physical properties of this unique product!

The principle advantage of corrugating materials is that although it doesn’t make them any stronger as such, it does increase their rigidity by virtue of spreading any applied load along the length of the corrugations.

We commissioned some deflection testing to ascertain just how much of a difference the corrugating process makes to the rigidity of these striking aluminium sheets.

Impressively the test results showed that, compared with a control sample of flat aluminium sheet, the corrugated material had an impressively increased resistance to deflection of between 8 & 15 times (depending on the sheet patterns tested). You can view the full test results on our website.

These highly attractive corrugated sheets are available from stock in a super smooth matt anodised finish. Alternatively we can powder coat sheets to a wide RAL colour range or, for that funky urban look, supply in the mill (untreated) condition.

A perforated sheet version of Anolight is also able to view here.
