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
