Aluminium Extrusions - machining, finishing and assembly

Having all its facilities and processes under one roof allows ABL to tightly control its aluminium extrusions component machining, finishing and assembly operations which in turn allows the company to offer high quality and short lead times.

Architectural Aluminium

With its proven design and high performance qualities, ABL Architectural decking and flooring is widely recognised as a definitive architectural solution for a multitude of applications. These include: Staircases, Bridge Decking, Walkways, Balconies and Flooring.
The system is precision engineered in lightweight aluminium with a modular connection system requiring no welding for assembly. We offer a variety of load bearing profiles that can be purchased in standard lengths or bespoke cut-to-size lengths. ABL Architectural decking combines the functional possibilities of extrusion technology with the outstanding material properties of anodised aluminium. These qualities ensure that the decking is aesthetically pleasing and robust whilst offering ease of installation and a strong adherence to UK and European safety and construction regulations.

Surface Treatment - Anodising for Preparation and Protection

Anodising can substantially increase corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and anodised parts provide better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal. ABL Aluminium Components has the capacity to anodise components produced from aluminium extrusions and ranging from 10 mm to 2.7 metres in shades of gold, silver, natural and black.

Anodising can be performed on parts you supply or as one of the added processes applied to aluminium extrusions and components we manufacture for you.
