If you require your section to be supplied simply as mill finish (as extruded) please let us know if you will be surface treating at a later stage, so we can insure the most suitable product offer.
What finished length do you require your sections to be supplied in? Do you have a particular tight tolerance on the length you require? Sections are normally extruded in lengths between 3.0 and 6.5 mtrs long. We are able to offer in house re – cutting should you require shorter lengths.
Please refer to our design page for useful tips on extrusion design.
Along with your design please let us know your usage (anticipated or actual) so we can insure the correct manufacturing route and commercial offer is made for your needs.
Let us know if your requirement is ongoing. You may like the benefit of knowing your section was available ex stock without having to wait for production lead times. We can offer a fully managed stockholding service for your extruded profile. See our aluminium extrusion stockholding page for further details.
Lastly do you have particular packaging requirements? These may include pack dimensions or maximum number of pieces per pack. Some customers require little or no packaging to help minimise their waste disposal requirements. Let us know your preferences.
