This type of profile is used, for example, in electronics, industrial automation systems, laboratory tables, or as on-board protections, sliding rails for handles, etc.: all fields that require a high degree of precision. Actually, there is a great variety of aluminum structural profiles because each one is subject to infinite customizations based on the final use – it would be impossible to list them all.
In this article, we'll see the main aluminum structural profiles, their features, and more:

What types of aluminum structural profiles are there?
They are aluminum structural profiles mainly used in the preparation of industrial and commercial vehicles, such as buses and vans. They are, in fact, finishing and lining elements that accommodate the fastening screws of internal and external vehicle panels or the rubber elements of the bodywork.
Special section corners
Often required with a knurled surface to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the elements on which they are applied, they are mostly used as finishing elements for panels or steps on buses, trains, and other industrial vehicles or used for passenger transport.
Special U profiles
These aluminum structural profiles are applied in various sectors: automotive, electronics, electromechanical, construction, furniture, etc. and they can have very small dimensions. The dimensional tolerances of these extrusions, in fact, are generally equal to -/+ 0.15 mm, but much smaller specific dimensions can also be reached, as required.
Borders with screw attachment
They are special custom-designed profiles for the preparation of industrial vehicles and shops, fairs, and other occasions in the field of technical furniture: their function is, in fact, to hide the fastening screws on panels.
Handrails for stairs
Used in the construction and furnishing sector, they are the handhold element for parapets and railings of stairs and balconies: while they hide the fastening screws, they also become aesthetic components that complete the design of the element to which they are applied.
Used in the furnishing sector, these specifically-designed aluminum structural profiles are strong, resistant, and versatile. They can also be customized according to your needs in terms of shapes, sizes, and dimensional tolerances.
These are profiles that find their main application as finishing and coupling elements on wooden or other material-based panel assemblies. They are made resorting to the qualities of the 6060 aluminum alloy.
Finally, picture frames are aluminum structural profiles designed with a 45° angle whose aim is to serve as fastening and corner assembly bracket housing. These extrusions are made in the 6060 aluminum alloy.

Small-sized aluminum structural profiles
The specificity of Profall is to make aluminum structural profiles and other types of extrusions with even very small dimensional tolerances, well below common standard sizes.
This is made possible by the experience accumulated by the company over the years of activity and by the constant investment in research, development, and technology in search of cutting-edge solutions, so much so as to have collaborated, for example, also with CERN Geneva for the production of particle accelerator components.
But not only the dimensions can be changed: the new partnership with RCRAMERA allows Profall to guarantee a customization service that also includes the surface finish of aluminum in order to remove impurities and guarantee any color request and packaging, with the possibility of applying logos, bar codes, etc.
