At Shearfab we handle a diverse range of materials in our Telecommunications, MCCs & Control Panels, and Sheet Metalwork & Fabrication departments, including aluminium. Aluminium, along with steel, stands as one of the most extensively used metals, forming the foundation of numerous day-to-day items.

  • Aluminium is the most abundant metal on Earth, making up around 8% of the Earth’s crust
  • Aluminium is around one-third of the weight of steel
  • Aluminium resists corrosion and it never rusts. It oxidizes and this oxide sticks to the surface and protects the metal
  • Recycling aluminium requires only 5% of the energy needed to extract it from ore. This means that a lot of the aluminium ever produced is still in use today, around 75%. It is more energy and cost-efficient to recycle aluminium products than producing new ones
  • The aluminium industry’s carbon footprint has decreased by almost 40% since the 90’s

Shearfab’s one-stop-shop sheet metal fabrication facilities allows Shearfab to produce a surprisingly diverse range of mild steel and aluminium products.
