Extrusion Applications-Construction


Buildings account for over 40% of global energy consumption, and aluminum extrusion is playing a major role in placing buildings on an energy diet. Yet extrusions do more than help buildings be more energy efficient. Extrusions help protect in storms, provide hardware, create retail displays, revitalize our infrastructure...and they can awe and inspire.

Custom extrusions can create a signature design solution with differentiation, personalization, enhanced function, and greater value. The aluminum extrusion process is ideal for custom solutions with tooling costs and turnaround times among the lowest of material processes. Read our white paper: Should You Consider the use of Custom Aluminum Extrusions for Your Next Design Project?
