technical: 40mm profiles

Find out more about our 40mm profile range and see how it can work for you and your project. Looking for a basic list of parts, features or need to know more about our range of 40mm profiles – start here!

Overview

We’re often asked to create a wide range of different applications. These profiles is where we typically start. Generally if there are very light loads (50kg and under), we might look to using the 30mm profiles, but as a general rule, we can cover most applications with 40×40 profiles. The key lies in the overall design, support – if possible, and understanding what your project is about and what it needs.

40mm

- our main profiles

We’re often asked to create a wide range of different applications. These profiles is where we typically start. Generally if there are very light loads (50kg and under), we might look to using the 30mm profiles, but as a general rule, we can cover most applications with 40×40 profiles. The key lies in the overall design, support and understanding what your project needs.

40 x 80mm

- profiles for applications that need a bump in strength

The way that we look to use 40×80 profiles is based on minimising deflection and/or providing extra slots to work with. So if there’s an application where your span needs to be a little longer, needs an extra slot for a panel or mounting equipment we’ll use a 40×80 to make sure your design is reached. Combined with the 40×40 profiles, we cover almost all our projects with just these handful of options. 
Let us know what you need and we’ll make sure that your project and our design experience combine to create the right end result for you. 

We do our best to make sure that your project isn't costing you more than it needs to!

40 x 120, 40 x 160mm profiles

- longer spans and higher loads

When it needs to be a long span, there’s no chance of supports and it has to remain level, we’ll opt to using the larger sections in this group. Before looking at using these in your design make sure you get in touch with us so we can check that what you’re asking for is what you need.
