Aluminium U Channels

Aluminium U Channels


Aluminium U Channels, also known as Aluminium Channels or Aluminium C Channels, are general purpose profiles that are widely used in both commercial and internal applications. Aluminium U channels are fairly strong and have exceptional corrosion resistance making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The aluminium U channel has high durability and is lightweight, making it the ideal choice for many applications, including structural framing, fitting, automobile construction, furniture manufacture and other general fabrication uses.


Uses of aluminium U channel include architectural trim, marine, ornamental, framing, displays, construction, glass and mirror projects, store fixtures, railings, elevators, woodworking projects.


Two of the most commonly used grades of aluminium U channel alloys are 6061 and 6063. AA6061 has the highest versatility of all heat-treatable aluminium U channel alloys, while keeping most of the good qualities of aluminium. It is corrosion resistant and offers a range of good mechanical properties. It can be welded and fabricated by many commonly used techniques and has good workability in the annealed condition. As a result, AA6061 is used in many products and applications, which require strength and corrosion resistance.

AA6063 has a fairly low strength, but excellent corrosion resistance and a smoother surface, as compared to other aluminium alloys. 6063 aluminium has good weldability and more formability than multipurpose 6061 aluminium. For aluminium U channels that require greater strength, AA6063 can be heat treated for added strength.

Common Grades, Sizes and Specifi­cations

AA6082Up to 300mmUp to 6000mmFrom 1.1mm
AA6061Up to 300mmUp to 6000mmFrom 1.1mm
AA6063Up to 300mmUp to 6000mmFrom 1.1mm

Other aluminium U channel sizes and grades are available upon request. You can request to cut your aluminium U channels down to size.


AnodisingResistant to corrosion and wear due to protective aluminium oxide outer layer.
Bright DippingElectro-brightening treatment to produce smooth surface with high lustre and “mirror” finish.
Brushed FinishDistinctive appearance with uniform fine lines parallel to the brushing direction.
Mill FinishOriginal nature of aluminium, where no chemical or mechanical finish is applied on the surface.
AnodisingResistant to corrosion and wear due to protective aluminium oxide outer layer.
Powder CoatingDurable film coating that can meet stringent performance criteria, offering a wide variety of colours.
PretreatmentEtched or cleaned with an acidic or alkaline material before a pretreatment coating is applied. Applied coating enhances paint or powder adhesion and is corrosion resistant.
