Aluminium Box Section - Cut to Size
The Aluminium Box sections are available in two different grades depending on your requirements:
Grade 6082T6 for sections of 10swg (3.2mm) or thicker. A general purpose aluminium with good strength and machining properties combined with good corrosion resistance.
Grade 6063T6 for sections of 16swg (1.6mm) which is used where strength is not as critical. This aluminium box section can therefore be bent and manipulated more readily.
