Labor Savings & Enhanced Designs

With almost limitless design flexibility, aluminum extrusions enable sophisticated design features and labor-saving functionality to be readily incorporated into building components. Add the ability to achieve a wide range of decorative finishes via either anodizing or coating with high-performance architectural paints and the environmental benefit of a material that can be readily recycled without loss of properties, and it is clear why extrusions find wide use in the commercial construction environment.

You'll find aluminum extrusions in

  • Windows & Doors (including hurricane & blast resistant)
  • Curtain Wall
  • Skylights/Rotundas
  • Store Front Systems
  • Atriums & Observatories
  • Canopies & Archways
  • Sun Shades & Louvers
  • Interior partitions & furniture systems
  • ... and many more applications

Extrusion Benefits

"Using Aluminum Extrusions to Meet the Challenge of Sustainable Buildings" presents an overview of evolving green/energy codes and their impact on the specification of aluminum extrusion-based building components. The presentation also offers alternative thermal management technologies and illustrates how aluminum extrusions can contribute to “green” commercial structures.
