Aluminum Beams

At BK-ALPROF, we make aluminum beams and related products. Our aluminum is available in alloys 6060 and 6063; it can be anodized and powder-coated. We can ship to any country, we have our own production facilities, which allow us to guarantee the excellent quality of end products, we do our job promptly, listen to the wishes of the customer, conduct consultations and make the necessary calculations. All in all, affordable prices and high quality work are guaranteed.



We can make:
  • H-shape beams;
  • Square hollow beams;
  • Channel beams;
  • T-shape beams;
  • Angle beams;
  • Aluminum battens;
  • As well as any other custom shape according to your design.

HOW WE MAKE CUSTOM BEAMS

  1. You send us your requirements and we thoroughly analyze them.
  2. We make your custom beams
  3. We apply finishing to the beams. It can be anodizing or powder coating or both.
  4. We pack the beams and ship them to you in a safe and timely manner.

HOW RELIABLE ARE THESE BEAMS?

Due to their strength and weather resistance, our products are often used in the construction industry and structural applications as aluminum girders. They make a commonly used material in various types of constructions where lightweight and vibration-resistant materials are needed. They can resist great pressure applied to them, and are often employed as supports.

The following are the main advantages of aluminum beams:
  • High corrosion resistance;
  • Durability;
  • Resistance to biocorrosion;
  • Light weight;
  • The ability to be used to as large supports with serious loads;
  • Fire safety (when compared with similar wooden products);
  • Versatility of application;
  • Great appearance.
Aluminum gets chosen as a material to make beams for a number of reasons. It is easily weldable, it isn’t heavy but quite durable, which is a well sought-after quality when it comes to metals, it is corrosion resistant, especially when it is anodized or powder-coated, it is widely applied in harsh and humid environments, which is hardly surprising, given aluminum joists’ lower prices when compared to those made of stainless steel.

Application of Aluminum Beams

The main use for beams is in construction. Lightness, increased strength, the ability to withstand high pressure. The configuration of these beams allow them to be used as load-bearing elements of structures in critical areas. This is one of the many wonderful features of structural aluminum.

These beams are used for a variety of industrial applications, including:
  • Constructions where support pieces, such as beams can resist great pressure,
  • Framework;
  • Vehicle components;
  • Railings;
  • Purlins.
Aluminum is used in mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, automobile and aircraft construction. They are used to take on the main load. Aluminum beams are used in the construction of various kinds of floors, suspension, support structures and bridges.

HOW OUR BEAMS LAST LONGER

There are two ways to protect aluminum extrusions, to make them harder and more durable: by painting them with powder paints or by oxidizing them, i.e. by artificially creating a thick film on the surface. Oxidation, in turn, is subdivided into two subcategories: chemical oxidation in chromium solutions and proper anodizing by means of anodic polarization of the product in an electrolyte.

Aluminum that undergoes the procedure of anodizing looks better and lasts longer. The color looks smoother, and brighter; there are a lot of possible shades of coloring, and it is easier to get the desired texture. Anodizing is much less dependent on the quality of aluminum. In addition, the range of colors and shades of anodized metal products is becoming wider and wider every year. Even iridescent anodizing is now available to create an iridescent shiny coating on the surface of the product.

ALLOYS WE USE TO MAKE OUR BEAMS

We use alloys 6063 and 6060 to make the beams. 6063 aluminum alloy was developed in the 1930s. In the 1990s, its "diluted" version, aluminum alloy 6060, appeared. Today, alloy 6063 is considered as an American standard, as it is widely used in the United States. Alloy 6060 is mostly used in Western Europe.

Comparison of Alloys 6060 and 6063

Aluminum Alloy 6060

Aluminum alloy 6060 has a minimum magnesium content of 0.35% and silicon of 0.30%. Alloy 6060 is sometimes referred to as “diluted” alloy 6063. Easy to extrude even with very complex profile cross-sections. It possesses good formability, for example during bending. It is applied in building enclosing structures — windows, doors, facades, as well as in the manufacture of handrails, fences, furniture, sports equipment.

It is well suited for anodizing, both protective and decorative.

Aluminum Alloy 6063

Aluminum alloy 6063 has a minimum magnesium content of 0.45% and silicon of 0.20%. The increased minimum of magnesium in comparison with alloy 6060 provides a slightly higher strength than that of alloy 6060.

However, the increased magnesium content reduces the pressing speed of alloy 6063 — by 15-20% compared to alloy 6060.

The scope of alloy 6063 is basically the same as that of alloy 6060, with the exception of very complex and thin-walled profiles, for example, heat exchange "combs", where it is recommended to use alloy 6060.

We can make beams of each type of the two aforementioned aluminum alloys. Contact us by phone at +1-718-303-2335 or use the form below. Our sales team will be happy to help you.

FAQ
What’s the price?
The cost of an aluminum beam depends on the type, characteristics and the level of corrosion protection, the amount of the delivery batch. Order high-quality beams from us, and we will deliver your order anywhere in the Russian Federation.
What’s the minimum amount I can order?
The minimum order quantity is 500 kg or 1102 lbs.
Can I order custom shapes other than aluminum beams?
Yes, we can manufacture any shape in line with your specifications.
What types of beams do you have in stock?
We do not store beams. We begin extruding them after confirming the order.
What surface finishing can you apply?
Anodizing, powder coating or mill finish.
Aside from beams, what can you make?
On our site, you can find any extruded aluminum product of any shape (flat bars, framing systems, moldings, façade claddings, square, rectangular, and round tubes) for different purposes; else you can order custom aluminum items made completely by your design. Moreover, BK-ALPROF makes long lifespan, energy-saving outdoor LED lamps with aluminum frames that meet all the needs of the modern city. You can rely on us for the best quality aluminum extrusion on the market.
Where do you ship your products to?
Our facilities are located in Russia, but we can ship our beams to any country of the world. Contact our sales team for the price and further information.
