In addition to our bespoke profile service, BWC manufacture a range of standard library plastic extrusions
Standard library profiles make up the vast majority of plastic extrusion applications, from goal posts to blind railing.
Below you'll find some of the most common standard profile types, however others are also available.
Box sections provide a great strength to weight ratio and are highly versatile. Common use cases include piping, spacing and framing.
Round Tubes & Rods
Offer the same strength to weight ratio as box sections while rigid. They can also be found using a flexible material, to be used as bendable piping or sheathing.
Flat bars, both rigid and flexible, are often used for edging, filling and bracing.
Available at various angles and with both equal and unequal leg sizes. These profiles can be found in use as stair nosing, or in cladding/ façade projects.
U Channel & Binders
U Channels, with both equal and unequal leg lengths, are often used as cable trays and capping. Ridges or barbs are often added to the legs to enable interlocking.
Available with multiple top designs, these also often come with barbing to allow interlocking. The top section is also available with unequal legs. These are usually used for mating boards.
H (I) Sections
Used for joining panels, or as a brace, H sections come as both a singe piece, or as two interlocking T sections.
If you're struggling to find a standard profile that meets your requirements, it may be that you require a bespoke plastic extrusion. Get in touch and we can assist with your search, or perhaps subsequent design.
