How the stands are
95 % of the stand is made of aluminium alloy. It has great strength properties and being infinitely recyclable, aluminium is one of the most environmentally friendly metals.
AlMgSi (AW 6060) alloy is widely used in engineering structures and as such has excellent qualities. It is lightweight, corrosion resistant and while it exhibits high strength, it is also exceptionally workable and weldable.
We source all our material in large quantities to have enough in stock to meet the demand and to minimize the negative impact of transportation on our environment.
Using only stainless
All fasteners and hardware we supply with the stands are made of A2 grade stainless steel.
A2 (also known as SAE 304) stainless steel has excellent resistance to a wide range of atmospheric environments and many corrosive media. Which is exactly what we want for our stands as they go through a lot over their lifespan.
Bolts, nut rivets and adjustable feet work like new and show no rust even after years of use and dozens of exhibitions inside and outside in all weathers.
Thanks to CNC lasers we are able to design elaborate joint connections and produce large quantities of parts with very high precision.
A key feature of every stand is that it can be disassembled into individual parts, which makes it easy to transport, install and store.
Smooth repeated disassembly and assembly requires absolute precision of all parts which is exactly what we are able to deliver using CNC lasers. Every single part we produce is precise and fits.
Only with the use of CNC lasers, we are also able to create very specific parts that we designed to increase strength of the welded joints.
More than just
The smooth final finish you see requires four specific steps to guarantee maximum durability, protection and high-end look.
Step 1. Preparation
Each part is individually sanded. We pay special attention to sections cut with a CNC laser making sure there are no sharp edges. During this process we also thoroughly check for any possible dents or blemishes on all of the surfaces.
Step 2. Chemical cleaning
All parts go through chemical bath cleaning. This process removes any unwanted residue, oils or even fingerprints that could subsequently weaken the paint.
Step 3. Chromating
Chromating is the conversion coating process of depositing an oxide layer over a metal surface to enable the metal to react with the oxide layer. This forms a layer of passivated metal chromate on the surface.
It is an extremely important process as it reduces the reactivity, improves durability and corrosion resistance of the surface finish as well as of the aluminum alloy.
Step 4. Powder coating
Powder coating is a dry finishing process that uses electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) to achieve a perfectly even application of the final coating. An electric charge causes dry powder to fuse to the surface of the metal. Each part is then baked in a curing oven at 250 °C.
The result is a smooth hard finish tougher than conventional paint. It is resistant to impacts, moisture, chemicals and extreme weather which reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasion, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues.
The ESD method minimizes the amount of paint used which makes it also very cost effective and more sustainable.
We are proud to manufacture our stands locally working with companies we know for years.
No matter how complex the technology and manufacturing processes are, the key to success are always the people executing them.
We know all our suppliers on a personal level.
Together we can always seek the best quality possible and to avoid sourcing from overseas. Supporting our local economy is important to us.
