This aluminium profile has a distinctive 'Z' shape which makes it useful for specific applications. The way the 'Z' is formed, ensures a long lasting shape. It starts its life as an aluminium billet which is then extruded through a die at hot temperatures and extreme pressures. Then it is cooled down. Because of this lengthy process of heating and cooling, it can retain this unique dual-sided profile shape similar to our aluminium angles and tee section.
It's popularity is steered towards applications that require a light structural aluminium. Working well as uprights for stands and frame building, supporting boards or sheets for displays and partitions. It could even work as corner protectors in the right setting.
Aluminium zed section is also effective in thresholds, flooring and stairs. The lightweight advantages of the material make it easy to handle and work with. Some DIYers choose aluminium zsection for their latest projects. We've seen it featured in an aluminium greenhouse and garden furniture.
