Aluminium

Aluminium is used in building and architecture for various reasons:

  • Its light weight allows for easier rectification of structures for example façade panels, roofing, doors and windows.
  • Its good inherent corrosion resistance allow for durable outdoor exposure
  • It has a good strength-to-weight ratio making it suitable, in sheet form, for use in construction.

Aluminium is, of course, fully compatible with our range of coatings and colours.

We supply Aluminium coil for use in the manufacture of construction sheeting which conforms to BS EN 508 2 2008 and other grades
