Alro stocks aluminum angle, aluminum beam, aluminum channel and aluminum tee structurals. The most popular aluminum structural are 6061 and 6063. Aluminum angles, beams, channels and tees can be used in various applications due to their unbeatable strength to weight ratio compared to other metals. Weighing in at 1/3 as much as Iron, Steel, Copper or Brass Aluminum is the most abundant metal element in Earth's crust and makes up about 8 percent by weight. Aluminum is corrosion resistant and and virtually maintenance free. It has good heat conductivity, better than any other common metal and conducts electricity comparable to copper products.
Aluminum is also non-toxic and can be used in food preparation equipment. Aluminum's reflective nature is suitable for light fixtures, is non-combustible and so does not burn. Some end uses include transportation, food packaging, furniture, electrical applications, building, construction, machinery and equipment.
Alro stocks Aluminum Extruded Structural products in 4 shapes and 2 grades: 6061 angle, 6061 beam, 6061, channel, 6061 tee, 6063 angle and 6063 channel.

Alro Stocks 2 Grades Of Aluminum Structurals
Alro Steel stocks Aluminum extrusion structural products in angles, beams, channels and tees in various thicknesses and lengths in 6061 aluminum or 6063 aluminum.
6061 aluminum extrusion structural shapes are the most versatile and widely used of heat treat grades, offering excellent machinability, weldability and medium strength. Its high corrosion resistance at all temperatures makes it a popular choice in applications where welding or brazing is required. It is typically used in pipe fittings and various transportation end uses.
6063 extruded aluminum has generally good mechanical properties and is heat treatable and weldable. Because of this, 6063 is mostly used in extruded shapes for architecture. Common applications include roofs, window frames, and door frames.
