Trailers require sturdy parts to stand up to the rigors of the road. Tri-State Aluminum provides a range of aluminum extrusions for pull-behind trailers made from the 6000 series of aluminum, specifically 6105, 6005A, and 6061.

Advantages of Aluminum Extrusions for Trailers

Aluminum extrusions are structural components formed by pushing molten aluminum through a steel die with a particular shape. Aluminum flows easily in its molten state, allowing it to be forced easily into precise extrusion shapes. Once pushed through, the extruded aluminum shape is cooled to solidify for use in various applications.

There are several benefits to using aluminum extrusions for trailers:

  • Lightweight: Aluminum is significantly lighter than steel. The reduced weight helps improve fuel efficiency and manage increased payloads when there are weight restrictions.
  • Durability and strength: Extruded aluminum parts for trailers offer excellent strength-to-weight ratios, superbly handling the stresses of towing and carrying cargo.
  • Cost-effective: Using aluminum extrusions can save you money in the long run due to improved fuel efficiency. Because 6000 series aluminum is durable and highly resistant to corrosion, you also save with reduced maintenance and repairs over time.
  • Versatility and aesthetics: Our extrusion process allows us to create parts of various shapes and profiles. Whether you are looking for channels to house wiring or grooves for joining panels, at Tri-State Aluminum, we can extrude nearly any custom shape with various finishing options for your trailer.
