The use of aluminium in building construction involves its close association with many other materials. Aluminium is compatible with most, but there are a few which require some special attention.

Metallic building materials
Chromium plate

Providing the plating is correctly applied there is no acceleration of attack on aluminium.

Copper and copper alloys

Contact between copper and aluminium will result in severe corrosion. Where joining these metals is unavoidable always use plastic ferrules and washers. Water must not be allowed to drip from copper and its alloys onto aluminium.

Iron and steel

For relatively clean rural and urban atmospheres the contact areas of steel should be painted with a bituminous or red oxide / zinc chromate paint. Existing steelwork should have any rust removed by scratch brushing. Lead-free paint should be used on any new steelwork that will be in contact with aluminium.

In extremely corrosive environments, a nonabsorbent gasket, such as PVC or similar should be used in addition to paint.

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.
