Brief introduction to aluminum u channel

As the name suggests, aluminum u channels are aluminum profiles with U-shaped grooves in their structure. Both the inside and outside of the groove are at right angles to each other. This structure can hold and support various materials. Therefore it is often used in edge areas. Nowadays, there is a growing demand for aluminum u channels, one of the reasons why the bright and straight lines of u shaped grooved aluminum profiles match the modern architecture and decoration style of today’s society. U channel aluminum can also be used as decorative materials for ceilings and walls. Because in addition to aesthetics, aluminum u channels also have ventilation, air permeability. And it is easy to install and remove, saving time and installation cost.

Aluminum u channels belongs to one of the basic aluminum profiles. And Retop produces a series of basic aluminum profiles. For example, round tube aluminum profile, square tube aluminum profile, aluminum profile sheet, aluminum profile coil and so on. Besides these basic aluminum profiles, there are also aluminum profiles for windows and doors, aluminum profiles for curtain walls, aluminum profiles for cabinets, heat sink aluminum profiles and so on. You can get any aluminum profile you need from us!

Strengths of u channel aluminum

1. Easy to install and dismantle.The installation structure of aluminum u channels are special keel snap type structure. Installation is as simple and convenient as installing strip fasteners.

2. High plasticity. Regarding the shape, aluminum u channels can be extruded into curved shape in addition to straight shape. The curved U-shaped aluminum profiles can provide users with creative decoration ideas. Regarding the color, the surface of u shaped aluminum profiles can be processed into many different colors. It can be matched with different styles of interior design.

3. Excellent performance: the raw material of u shaped groove aluminum profile is aluminum alloy. Aluminum alloy has the excellent characteristics of light weight, good rigidity, high strength, good weather resistance and corrosion resistance. So people can use this aluminum profile in bathroom, outdoor and many other occasions.

4. Powerful. Aluminum u channels are suitable to be used in public places with heavy flow of people. Because it facilitates air circulation, exhaust and heat dissipation. At the same time it can also make the light distribution evenly, make the whole space spacious and bright.

Features of u shaped aluminum channel

Aluminum u channels have the characteristics of light weight, high strength, good corrosion resistance, non-magnetic, easy to extrude and good low temperature performance. Therefore, u shaped aluminum channels can be welded to create a variety of structural frames. Welding with aluminum alloys reduces the weight of the structure by more than 50 % compared to steel sheet materials.
These characteristics make aluminum u channels more widely used, in addition to the field of building decoration, but also in aviation, aerospace and electrical engineering, petrochemical industry and other fields.
