Due to the wide application of u shaped aluminum channel, it has many specifications and is not fixed. Aluminum alloy material is easy to extrude, so it can be made into various shapes and sizes of aluminum profile products.
Therefore, aluminum profile suppliers will customize the right U profile aluminum profiles for the specific application of the customer. As a leading aluminum profile manufacturer, we at Retop have advanced production technology and equipment to meet the various needs of our customers. We can make aluminum u channels in various sizes and colors.
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!
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.
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.

Like most of the aluminum profiles, u channel aluminum is available in various surface treatments and colors. Generally, they are made according to the style of the user’s place of use or the specific needs of the customer. Retop can meet the requirements of various finishes and colors. We have many customers who are very satisfied with the aluminum u channels we make. Here are the common surface treatments and colors.
1.Surface treatment: Material, anodic oxidation, color oxidation, electrophoresis, spraying, wood grain transfer, etc.
2.Color: White, black, grey, solid color, imitation wood grain, stone grain, silver grey, gold, champagne gold, rose gold, original color, titanium, high-gloss, matte, two-tone, three-tone, antique copper.
The function of aluminum u channel is also very powerful, it plays different roles in different applications. For example: edge protection, covering seams, shelf sealing, impact protection and so on. The following are the common functions of aluminum u channels.
1. structural support. u-channel aluminum profiles have good strength and stability, and can be used to build various structures, such as mechanical frames, brackets, assembly lines and other structural support.
2. Flexibility and adjustability. U-channel design makes it easy to install connectors, such as bolts and nuts, for quick assembly and adjustment of structures.
3. Rails and guides: The design of U-channels makes them suitable for use as part of rails or guiding systems, e.g. for moving brackets, slides and adjusting devices.
4. Electronic equipment support. In the manufacture of electronic equipment, U-channel aluminum profiles are commonly used to support and mount electronic components, control panels, and so on.
5. Solar energy support. Aluminum u channel is commonly used in the construction of solar racking systems because they can easily support and fix solar panels.
