Fabricated Aluminium Sheet

IntroductionCassette Aluminium Example

At Insite we install thousands of architectural pressings a year. These may vary from a simple folded coping or aluminium flashing, to a zinc or stainless steel architectural multi fold, with pressing and reinforced welded corners and brackets.  These act as an ancillary element to a curtain-wall and replace what once may have been a much heavier and complex detailed precast concrete element.

A significant advantage of incorporating Insite's architectural pressings into your project, is that they can be integrated with the facade system by engineering shop drawings to work together with the curtain-wall, not as a 'clip-on' by a separate trade.
In this manner the fixings and any necessary structure is under one trade, a one-source solution.

Fire Rating

Aluminium is non-combustible to a point, however a Fire Engineer should be consulted to ensure compliance to code, and confirm the suitability of the specified product.


Where the finished product is aluminum, we recommend the following surface finishes:

  • Polyester powder coat  - both standard and special colours available

  • Anodised - all anodised colours available - commercial grade 20 micron finish recommended

  • PVF2 Fluorocarbon finishes - available on request

For materials other than aluminium, such as steel, stainless steel, zinc, and copper, please call us to discuss your needs to ensure that dissimilar metals are managed and do not affect the durability of your aluminium window frames.


We constantly invest in our plant and machinery to enable us to undertake work that others cannot do, including CNC saws, wall saws, flat bed routers, water bed cutters, CAM folding machines and more.
