BlueScope Distribution are able to supply a range of Aluminium structural sections which are manufactured using an extrusion process to create solid profile shapes for a viable and adaptable solution in the construction, industrial and manufacturing sectors.
Our structural sections can be supplied cut to length and pre punched if required. Accessories and complimentary components are also available.
Aluminum extrusion is a technique used to transform aluminum alloy into objects with a definitive cross-sectional profile for a wide range of uses. The extrusion process makes the most of aluminum’s unique combination of physical characteristics. Its malleability allows it to be easily machined and cast.
This combined with it’s inherent strength and stability, make aluminium extruded components suitable for a wide range of applications.
BlueScope Distribution structural sections are available custom-cut to most transportable lengths, however there are some limitations.
For normal deliveries nominal lengths should not exceed 12,000mm. Lengths greater than 12,000mm require special transportation and on-site handling facilities. Please check local laws regarding permits and requirements for oversize deliveries.
Lengths greater than 19,500mm require a special transportation permit and non-containerised shipment. For minimum lengths, and lengths over 12000mm, contact BlueScope Distribution.
BlueScope Distribution structural sections are delivered in strapped bundles, bags, or packages as appropriate. The actual quantity in each bundle will vary with section size, order and length. The bundle mass is generally approximately one tonne.
Product that has become wet in transport is to be unpacked immediately and each section dried thoroughly prior to repacking. Contact with moisture, cement dust, lime or abrasive dust is to be avoided. If not required for immediate use, sections should be neatly stacked off the ground, covered and on a slight slope so that water can drain away.
Bundled sections and accessories should not be left exposed in the open for any period as water staining may result between any aluminium
surfaces in contact with each other. Mill finish aluminium is particularly susceptible to this type of staining. It should be noted that whilst water
staining is unsightly it will not affect the structural integrity or durability of the product in any way.
BlueScope Distribution structural sections are commonly used in harsh environments for commercial, industrial and rural buildings, reservoirs and severe marine environments.
All BlueScope Distribution aluminium sections are available in a range of aluminium alloys and tempers.
These sections maybe supplied in either stock lengths or with a degree of customisation from custom lengths to pre–drilled fixing holes.
Please contact a member of the BlueScope Distribution aluminium sales team for specific advice and consultation on the suitability of our products for your project.
Structural sections manufactured from BlueScope Distribution aluminium can be supplied cut to length and pre punched if required.
