Aluminum construction profiles

Benefit from item know-how

Aluminum instead of steel - that was the innovative idea Gerrit Pies and Wolfgang Rixen -item's founders - developed in Solingen, Germany. This resulted in the very first universal aluminum construction profile with grooves and bolted connections. Since then, it has become a global success story. Aluminum construction profiles from item have been on the market since 1980: We are the original!

The selection of components for the MB Building Kit System from item is constantly expanding and is compatible with each other. As a pioneer in aluminum construction profiles, item draws on extensive knowledge and decades of experience. Take advantage of the flexible MB Building Kit System from item for your individual designs in custom machine construction.


Profiles 5: Compact and lightweight profiles

Thanks to their low weight and compact dimensions, item Line 5 profiles are ideal for constructions that are elegant but stable. For example, Line 5 profiles with flat cross-sections are used as carriage profiles in linear systems. Profiles from this line are also perfect for building lightweight frames and can accommodate a maximum tensile load of 500 N on the groove (M5 bolts).

Profiles 6: Weight-optimised profiles

Line 6 profiles are a good choice for use in strong, weight-optimised tables, racks and frames. They support a slimline design and use resources sparingly, while variants with closed grooves create a harmonious appearance. The maximum extraction force on the groove is 1,750 N (M6 bolts).


Profiles 8: The standard material for design engineers

Line 8 profiles from item are the originals of the aluminium building kit system. They offer the widest range of variants and are robust all-rounders that can withstand tensile loading of up to 5,000 N and use M8 bolts.


Profiles 10: Maximum load-carrying capacity for demanding applications

Line 10 profiles are used when heavy loads need to be supported but space is limited. The high-strength profile flanks accommodate tensile loading of up to 7,000 N per screw connection (M10). These added-value profiles are also resistant to pre-tension losses. Lightweight Profiles 10e can be used in machine areas involving low loads.


Profiles 12: Our strongest profiles

The strongest line in the MB Building Kit System is Line 12. The grooves accommodate extraction forces of up to 10,000 N per screw connection. The solid profiles are perfect for building high-strength frames and machine bases. Line 12 can also carry even heavy attachments.


Special applications? item angled and flat profiles!

Special profiles without grooves are used as edge protection or grip rails. Strips and angled profiles are available in a range of sizes for all types of special constructions. They are screwed to panel elements.
