Aluminum Profile System helps build enclosed work areas

Featuring closed 10 mm slots, aluminum wall and ceiling profiles require no additional machining. Spring-loaded clamping profiles are used for attachment of surface elements and other accessories. T-connector lets user create closed frames that can be reused or reconfigured at any time. With bolt-together construction, rooms can be designed to accommodate customer-specific requirements regarding fire protection class, noise protection, and cleaning options.

New wall and ceiling accessories make it easy to build enclosed work areas, training facilities or controlled manufacturing environments.

BUCHANAN, MI-New aluminum framing accessories from Bosch Rexroth Corporation, Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies group make it easier than ever before to build modular cleanrooms, enclosed work areas, training facilities or offices. Flexible and inexpensive rooms can now be created at any time with the expanded wall and ceiling system from Bosch Rexroth, which requires no additional machining of the aluminum profiles. Two new wall and ceiling profiles feature closed 10 mm slots; and new spring-loaded clamping profiles are used for easy, economical attachment of surface elements and other accessories. A T-connector for the profiles, also new to the program, lets you create closed frames that are simple to disassemble and reuse or reconfigure at any time.

Users can select from various materials, such as glass, wood, plastic, or steel, for the surface elements, infill panels, and doors. As a result, the rooms can be designed to accommodate customer-specific requirements regarding fire protection class, noise protection, and cleaning options. Studs on the ceiling profiles are provided for surface elements, lights, sprinklers, ventilation systems, or filter fan units for clean rooms. Smooth profile surfaces and internal (concealed) connection technology fulfill typical clean room criteria (ISO 2 purity class), since they prevent turbulence and particle traps.

The robust aluminum profile design allows the new wall and ceiling system to withstand high mechanical loads, providing a wide range of application possibilities, including those with self-supporting ceilings. In addition to simple partitioning walls in offices, users can easily set up enclosures in factories, such as training rooms, “clean” assembly environments, or even an attractive exhibition area.

Aluminum framing from Bosch Rexroth is easier to assemble and less expensive than steel, and it requires no welding or painting. With bolt-together construction, modular design and profiles and connectors to meet any strength requirement, the Aluminum Structural Framing program makes short work of hundreds of construction tasks. Stocking distributors nationwide provide application assistance and fast delivery. In addition, customers visiting the e-commerce pages at www.boschrexroth-us.com can place orders for the new wall and ceiling system on-line.
