Aluminium & Composite Systems

Aluminium & Composite Systems


Structural aluminium offers several advantages:

  • Lightweight: Aluminum is significantly lighter than steel, making it easier to handle and transport
  • High Strength-to-Weight Ratio: Despite its lightness, aluminum boasts a high strength-to-weight ratio, meaning it can withstand heavy loads while remaining relatively lightweight
  • Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum naturally forms a protective oxide layer when exposed to oxygen, which prevents corrosion and rusting
  • Recyclability: Aluminum is infinitely recyclable without losing its properties, making it a sustainable choice for construction projects

These benefits make aluminium an obvious choice for building elements such as bridges and access platforms.

KUSCH work closely with manufacturers such as Monkeytoe to develop their XBeam aluminium-carbon fibre product range and assist with the design and certification of aluminium and aluminium composite structures throughout Australia and New Zealand.
