Do I need to do the cutting and drilling?

It’s your choice.

Most of our aluminium profiles come in 6 metre lengths.  We can cut the profiles to the size you need to the nearest millimetre, at a small cost per piece. Alternatively, we can cut the profile in half to make shipping easier. We can also ship full length pieces.

Some fasteners require a drill hole or a tap into the aluminium profile.  We are happy to do the drilling and tapping for you at a small cost per process. It is best to provide us with a drawing to ensure the measurements are correct for what you’re trying to build.  Please call and ask us if you’re not sure.
