Advantages of Aluminium Trench Grilles

Lightweight nature for easy installation and transportation

Aluminium is about a third of the weight of steel, making it a very lightweight material that is easy and affordable to transport. The strength of aluminium can be altered using various alloying elements to make it even stronger. Due to its lightweight nature, aluminium is useful for trench heating and other applications like vehicle panelling and kitchen fittings.

Excellent durability

Aluminium grilles can stand the test of time as they are strong and do not bend easily. However, it’s also one of the most malleable and flexible materials and has a high strength-to-weight ratio. This means that it has a high impact strength and can withstand loads pushing down on it – making it ideal for grilles that are often faced with heavy foot traffic.

Corrosion resistance for long-lasting performance

As a corrosion-resistant metal, aluminium naturally generates a protective coating that is extremely thin and is generated when the material is in an oxidising environment. This protective aluminium oxide layer helps to protect the surface from corrosion thereby leading to its longevity. As a result, you look forward to a long lasting heating system.

Low maintenance requirements for cost savings

Aluminium requires very little upkeep due to its protective coating and rust-resistant properties. It’s super easy to maintain your aluminium grilles as they do not need a corrosion resistant treatment and once you have installed them, you’ll not incur any additional maintenance costs after purchasing your grilles.

Aesthetically pleasing appearance

Aluminium’s aesthetically pleasing features has also led to it being chosen as a popular trench heating material. It is offered in a variety of colours that can be considered contemporary and add an element of sophistication to your home or office. From grey and beige to light and dark brown, you’ll be able to choose the perfect colour to suit any modern space.

Roll-Up Closed Profile in Natural Aluminium

Natural aluminium is one of the most widely used trench heating materials as it offers both visual appeal and works well with the trench system for effective heat distribution. Due to its great versatility and excellent thermal and electrical conductivity properties, natural aluminium is ideal for heating your home. Aluminium is extremely durable and resistant to environmental factors and foot traffic so you can be rest assured that this product will withstand any heavy loads or elements.

The Roll-Up Closed Profile trench grille can be easily customised to complement not only your central heating, but also your home’s interior design and is suitable for various architectural styles. The grey colour combined with a dull texture gets used in both modern and more traditional settings. The installation process is also fairly simple and once installed, your trench grilles will be long-lasting.

Linear Snap Profile in Natural Aluminium

The corrosion resistance and durability of aluminium reduce maintenance requirements and associated costs over the trench grilles’ lifespan. The Linear T-bar Profile in Natural Aluminium is lightweight, making it easier to handle and install. This characteristic is especially beneficial when considering the overall load on the structure for the space it’ll be placed in.

The versatility and flexibility in design means that your trench heating can be seamlessly integrated into different building structures. Natural aluminium has a good thermal conductivity, allowing it to efficiently transfer heat and insulate the room. It’s also recyclable, making it the environmentally friendly choice.

This product is available in a grey colour that is combined with a dull texture which is the trendy and contemporary choice for architecture these days. The Linear Snap Profile grille has been entirely made of aluminium snap-on profile and is available at a height of 18mm.

The combination of corrosion resistance and inherent strength makes aluminium trench grilles durable and long-lasting. They can withstand heavy loads and foot traffic without warping or deforming.
