An aluminium tube / pipe modular system is now available from FlowStore, complementing our traditional FlowTube steel tube / pipe racking system.
Pipe racking equipment is versatile, flexible, reusable and can be modified as desired, offering custom designed structures for many industrial and manufacturing applications.
Installation is simple as no welding is required; structures are quickly and easily assembled using interlocking joints and connectors.
Aluminium tubes are ideal for many customised requirements, including assembly benches, work stations, AGV trolleys and flow racks as well as exhibition stands, display boards and garment rails.
Our aluminium tubing can be used in a stand-alone structure or conveniently combined with our steel modular system since it is designed to use the same diameter tube.
Accessories include roller tracks, lane divider guides and label holders.
Many special accessories can be created thanks to the unique properties of aluminium extrusion and casting processes.
Drawslides and rotational accessories, screen mounts, pulleys and gas struts etc can be incorporated into solutions. Louvred or Perfo panels and shadow boards can also be mounted.
A particular benefit of our round tubes is the absence of deep grooves which can permit dirt and debris to accumulate.
There is a complete range of aluminium tube connectors, joints and accessories. The standard 28mm diameter aluminium tubes are available in various profiles strengths: regular and heavy duty profiled tube; regular and heavy duty round tube; T-slot pipe; and slide pipe.
Due to the versatility of aluminium extrusion processes, there are also specialist extrusions, such as double tubes (figure of eight shape) and other composite shapes.
Many of the steel joints and accessories can be used with aluminium tubing. In addition, the aluminium joints come in both standard (‘outer’ A) type, and where smoother or sleeker appearance is required, flush (‘inner’ B type) versions are available.
The aluminium range also has a heavier duty 43mm diameter tube size. These can be stand-alone constructions, but can also combine with the 28mm size, as many joint parts and accessories are dual-use.
Apart from greater weight-bearing, the applications for 43mm size include access platforms and walk-over bridging units, complete with handrails, kick-plates, stairways and gates.
