Common Uses of T-Slot Aluminum Framing

T-Slot Aluminum – Strong, Easy to Assemble, Cost Effective

T-slot aluminum is a fairly simple concept of framing utilizing a “T” shaped groove or channel allowing you to attach extruded aluminum profiles together in a modular way without the need for welding. It has been called the “erector set for adults” and uses a similar concept, but instead of nuts and bolts, it uses special connectors that slide into the “t” slot and secure aluminum framing together. Using different types of t-slot and angle connectors you can arrange your aluminum profiles in numerous ways to create structures from OSHA and ANSI approved machine safety guarding, workstations, desk modules, climate control enclosures, material handling racks to laser enclosures.

Parco offers T-Slot Extrusions in Fractional and Metric Sizes.

45 Series Aluminum – profiles based on 45mm increments

Why T-slot Aluminum is a Great Option For Your Framing Needs

One of the best features of T-Slot Framing is its versatility; the ability to build something and then add to it or subtract from to meet the changing needs in your everyday business. You can easily dissasemble it and build an entirely new solution altogether if desired.

Aluminum Framing Vs. Steel Framing

T-slot framing is often compared to steel framing and this is one of the areas where T-slot framing wins hands down. If you build in steel you need to weld and paint, so once you have fabricated a design that is what it will remain. If a functionality change is needed to accomodate your changing business needs, then you would have to purchase more steel and fabricate the new solution. 

In addition to flexibility, constructing aluminum framing tends to be cheaper that steel. The steel itself may cost less, but once you add the time and labor for cutting, welding and painting, the t-slot aluminum framing is more economical.
