General information on angle profiles
Angle profiles are also called L-profiles. They owe their name to their angular cross-section. Angle profiles are offered in several variants, such as round and sharp-edged as well as isosceles and non-isosceles.
From a static point of view, angle profiles are particularly suitable for support purposes due to their stability. They also offer a high degree of safety for large constructions.
Stainless steel angle profiles are popular in the furniture industry and in interior applications. They are not only convincing because of their flawless surface. Stainless steel profiles are the first choice when high demands are made on hygiene and corrosion resistance. Since steel and stainless steel can be easily recycled, these materials stand for the economical use of raw materials and the conservation of natural resources.
Compared to products made of other materials, angle profiles made of aluminium are particularly light, but still resilient. The profiles are easy to process and also visually enhance the end product.
How are angle profiles manufactured?
The production of angle profiles depends on the material. The most important methods are the extrusion process:
In this process, a heated aluminium block is placed in a press cylinder. A punch presses the metal through a die. The shape of the die determines the cross-section of the angle profile. Almost any cross-section can be produced by extrusion. After cooling, the profile is cut to the desired length.
