Aluminum edging, what is it?

Aluminum borders are profiles used in numberless industrial fields as a finishing or cladding element for components. These high-quality solutions are versatile – because they can adapt to different applications – and resistant because they are suited both for indoor and outdoor use.

Not to mention the lightness of these products: aluminum edgings, in fact, are easy to transport and handle because they are manufactured with very light alloys, which make their installation even simpler.

Every aluminum border edging can be subject to finishings and special treatments, to offer better mechanical and esthetical features and adapt to each and every application requirement.

Let’s see all the products guaranteed by Profilati Alluminio!
