General Properties and Applications
Aluminum channels offer a broad range of applications and uses. They offer excellent structural support and particularly are useful with respect to framing for additional support.
6061-T6 Aluminum channels are most commonly used for framing, tracks, slides, protective edges, railings, rails, rims, and decoration. This is because the grade of aluminum, 6061, is the most versatile of the heat-treatable aluminum alloys. Because of this, it’s a top pick for people who want to use aluminum channels for construction.
Aluminum itself is a lightweight and conductive metal that is non-toxic and does not affect the taste of food or drink. It is used in a range of decorative and functional applications. Commonly alloyed with copper, manganese, silicon, magnesium, and zinc for further hardness and durability.
