Aluminium Beams – strong, but light to handle
Features and Benefits
RMD Australia has two innovative aluminium beams: Alform Beam and Albeam. They are both versatile, lightweight and durable beams with an extensive range of accessories.
- Strength-to-weight ratio
Far lighter and easier to handle than comparable timber beams.
- Unique profiles reduce damage
Alform Beam has bevelled edges, allowing plywood sheeting to be stripped quickly and easily.
- Increased bending and shear resistance
Allows more weight to be supported across greater spans with less equipment, saving time and costs.
Unlike timber, aluminium beams are always straight, simplifying and speeding up assembly.
- Consistent cross-section
Eliminates time and cost implications of selecting and hand-finishing timber.
- Longevity and durability
Aluminium beams can be re-used a number of times and have a much longer life than timber beams.
- Residual value
Even at the end of their practical, usable life, RMD's aluminium beams retain around 25% of their original cost.
