amplibeam Aluminium Beams
AMPLIBEAMS – Expanded aluminium beams
AMPLIBEAMS are aluminium beams manufactured using the AMPLIFORM process. This unique process makes use of an aluminium alloy extrusion that firstly has slots punched in preset positions using a purpose made machine and then stretched to a predetermined width.
There are 3 standard AMPLIBEAMS –
- ALB 200 – 200mm deep x 50mm wide up to 8m long
- ALB 365 – 365mm deep x 50mm wide up to 6m long
- ALB 475 – 475mm deep x 75mm wide up to 6m long
Amplibeams are manufactured for Aluminium Alloy 6063 Condition T6.

Amplibeam expanded beams have found applications in a wide variety of structural aluminium applications. These have included roofing structures and stringers in bridges etc. The light weigh and corrosion resistance of the aluminium makes them perfect for corrosive and inaccessible areas.

USES & BENEFITS
The various uses and benefits of the AMPLIBEAM
Amplibeams are manufactured in 3 different sizes ALB 475 , ALB 365 and ALB 200.
It is common to join the beams using a 4 way H connector. This ensures a stiff, compact joint. The 4 way H Connector may be cut back to a 3 way or 2 way connector.

ALUMINIUM ALLOY PROPERTIES
Amplibeams are manufactured using Aluminium Alloy 6063 in condition T6. Aluminium alloy 6063 is a heat treatable, wrought alloy.
BENEFITS & USES
AMPLIBEAMS are very versatile structural elements. No other metal product has a better strength to weight ratio.
- are light weight
- corrosion resistant
- easy to fabricate
- can be anodised or powder coated.
AMPLIBEAMS can be joined by welding, bolting, riveting or any other method provided suitable design criteria are applied.
We offer a range of AMPLIBEAMS and bolted 4 and 2 way H connectors that are suitable for various applications.
AMPLIBEAMS have found their way into a wide variety of applications.
