Aluminium profiles are by-products usually for structural purposes. It is possible to distinguish three types of profiles according to their use: construction, architectural and industrial.
- Construction profiles: this profiles offers high bending and torsional stiffness despite their low net weight. Solar panel frames, structures for working platforms and scenarios, etc.
- Architectural profiles: For this applications is very important the surface finish. Architectural profiles are used to made frameworks for windows, doors and curtain walls.
- Industrial purposes: On industry aluminium profiles are used to several purposes where is not too important his stiffness or quality surface, but a combination of both along with other characteristics of the material, such as conductivity, provides a wide variety of uses in industry to this by-product. Some examples can be: cable channels systems, heat sinks, air conditioning, cabinets and furniture, etc.
