Aluminium T-section bars are a popular product for structural and architectural applications. Commonly used in construction, they are a structure of solid aluminium with a raised T shape in their centre designed to bear heavy loads.

They are a versatile product with a range of different uses, commonly found in both wrought and cast forms. They can assist with applications such as machining, drilling and tapping, making them a perfect material for assisting in the manufacture of window and door frames, rails, furniture and various other fixings. They are also ideally suited for welding and are used in engineering fabrication workshops and machine shops in the UK today.

Our extruded Aluminium T sections are available in a range of sizes and are all supplied cut to length. They are available in grade 6082T6, which is the most common grade of commercial aluminium sections and plates, and T6 is the most common temper. 6082T6 is the strongest of the 6000 grade alloys, which is particularly suitable for structural applications and also for welding and machining.

This means they can be readily formed, welded, and machined and are supplied in a wide choice of dimensions to suit any job.

Aluminium T-section bars have great finishing properties and excellent resistance to corrosion, adding huge durability to any product. They can therefore be suitable for outdoor applications, specially helpful for domestic uses such ad window and door frames, resisting rust and withstanding elements. Due to their low density they are extremely ductile and exhibit strength to hold moderate pressure.

We tend to advise that grade 6082T6 is unsuitable for bending, however, this doesn’t mean that grade 6082T6 can’t be worked with. Workers must ensure the fabricator is prepared for failure and they are suitably kitted out in health and safety attire to avoid any injury,

For example; If a piece of 6082T6 aluminium was placed into a folder or press brake which was then set to achieve a 90 degree bend, there would be a chance that the aluminium would crack and open up along the fold, and eventually as the material is further stretched, it would break off.

Available from 100mm to 3,000mm, we offer a huge range of lengths of aluminium t-section bars. If you need a more specific measurement, our free metal cutting service can cater for amendments of +/-2mm to ensure precise fitting.
