  • possibility to have lengths in strict accordance with the Customer’s requirements
  • possibility of immediate purchase from our own stores, whose current stocks are shown on/at the on-line stock
  • guarantee of quality and precision of execution (possibility to supply products with narrower dimensional tolerances)
  • CE symbol (admissible for use in the construction industry)
  • possibility to order the shape of the cross section made according to the Customer’s individual requirements (up to an expanded width of 500 mm)
  • possibility to order products protected against corrosion (including hot galvanised)
  • very high surface quality of products enabling powder painting processes to be applied
  • technical and technological support for Customers during the initialisation phase of production of non-typical products ordered by them

EXAMPLES OF APPLICATIONS:

Cold-formed sections have a wide variety of uses, being cheaper and lighter replacements for hot-rolled sections, and also as specialist products, in many branches of industry:

  • building industry: light hall constructions, bidding rafters, fencing systems gates, greenhouse constructions, scaffolding
  • car industry: linked trailer, semi-trailer and truck elements
  • railway industry: chassis and body elements of railway and tram wagons
  • wagon fittings, railway accessories
  • power industry: electricity pylons
  • telecommunications industry: radio and mobile phone masts, relays, antennae, cables
  • machine industry: agricultural and construction machinery
  • logistics and warehousing: high storage systems, fittings for large retail areas and petrol stations
  • infrastructure and transport: road barriers, sound-proof screens
