What are the most popular aluminum framing components?

Gold Apple Extrusions offers structural aluminum framing systems for any application in the residential, industrial and commercial building industries. As part of the world’s largest aluminum profile company, we have unsurpassed capabilities in extruded aluminum shapes, sizes, alloys, and tempers, including both direct and indirect extrusion methods.


Some of the most popular aluminum framing components are T-slot extrusions. They feature one or more long, narrow slots that travel along the length of the extrusion, and the profiles allow for the positioning of panels or screens anywhere along the axis. T-slotted profiles can be fabricated with one to four slots per side, leaving the other side(s) smooth. Some profiles have thicker walls, making them well-suited to structures with very high load requirements.

T-slots are connected with standard fractional or metric tools and anchor fasteners, corner brackets and joining plates, and no welding is necessary. T-slotted extrusion systems are quick to assemble with standard tools. They resist torque and bending better than standard square aluminum extrusions, so they maintain their shape and strength. T-slots operate like modular aluminum building blocks, allowing for economical frame building by easily positioning fasteners, panels and other components or accessories.
