Advantages and disadvantages of aluminium and iron mounting frames

With the widespread use of panel lights and the emergence of various decoration styles and different buildings, there are two types of installation for panel lights: surface mounted installation and recessed installation. Our surface mounted frames are available in 50mm, 70mm and 75mm heights and are made of aluminium and iron two materials. The next step is to introduce you to the advantages and disadvantages of aluminium and iron surface mounting frames.

Aluminium is more widely used in all areas of life because it has many advantages, and I'll talk about what its specific advantages are next.


1、Light weight

Surface frames made of aluminium are lighter in weight compared to some other iron frames because of the lower density of aluminium.

2、Resistant to natural corrosion.

People who learn chemistry must know that aluminium in the air can react with oxygen to produce a dense aluminium oxide film, which protects aluminium from further reaction.

3、Balance voltage

Conductive photovoltaic bracket system will sometimes produce some weak current for various reasons, and the aluminium frame has a very good conductivity can well balance the current to prevent some accidents.

4、Easy to make

Aluminium profiles are very light due to their low density and are very easy to process into the required specifications by sawing, drilling, punching, folding and other processes, so aluminium surface mount frames are relatively easy to make, which is one of the reasons why it is widely used.

5、Low temperature resistance

Aluminium alloy frame is very low temperature resistant because it contains aluminium metal, unlike some other steel brackets which are not as hard as they should be due to the process of adding a low temperature resistance.

6、Easy to recycle

Aluminium mounting frames do not cause any pollution after disposal and are easy to recycle.

Advantages and disadvantages of iron surface mounting frames.

1、Hardness, good plasticity and toughness

2、It has non-leakage, easy to make into an airtight structure

3、Price is advantageous

4、Good wear resistance, metallic luster

5、Poor corrosion resistance, easy to rust

In summary, iron and aluminium frames have their own advantages and disadvantages and users can choose different mounting frames according to their needs. We can always provide support and samples, please feel free to contact with us get catalogue and price list.
