How alfer® profiles differ
Hardware for DIY enthusiasts and home improvers
Whether for shelf construction, a dog crate for the car, a swing or a greenhouse: the combitech® system can be universally used and forms the basis of innumerable applications in the home – your creativity knows no bounds. Its qualities are even clear when it comes to model construction. The metals used include not only aluminium but also steel, copper and brass.
Everything fits together:
The combitech® system: flexibly combinable
The Basis range from combitech® comprises standard aluminium and plastic profiles such as pipes, brackets, square tubes and much, much more. The sizes are perfectly compatible so that everything fits together. The alfer® profiles have several features not present in competitors’ products, including
The drill alignment groove: precise drilling made easy
One product highlight is the typical drill alignment groove – just one of many practical ideas from alfer®. For example, this marks the opposite sides of a rounded pipe making vertical drilling through the middle easy. Instead of drilling right through while hoping to meet the opposite side at the right angle, the drill alignment groove tells you where to drill the opposite side. This also means that you can avoid creating a drill burr on the outside.
Additions: everything else you need.
The comprehensive range of accessories with various standard parts such as nuts, washers, springs, end caps, rubber buffers and much more offers the perfect addition for every application. Metric threads are a further important component: metric threaded rods from which screws of any length can be produced.
A professional tool range for processing the alfer® profiles makes your work easy. The useful assistants in the alfer® range: mitre boxes, multi-clamps, several saws, rulers and brackets.
combitech® connect: stable polyamide connections
The combitech® connect connectors can be used to simply connect 23.5 mm square tubes. Whether frames, shelves or anything else you wish to build, the stable polyamide connectors hold everything together. The connectors are available in two colours: black and white.
The different shapes can be used for different connections. Angle, corner, cross or T-connectors as well as nodes with 5 or 6 spigots at a 90° angle are supplemented by several connectors at 45° and numerous accessories such as the flange, hinge-flange and hinge connectors, end caps and adjustable foot.
alfer® has a special place in its heart for model builders.
Model builders can therefore also acquire combitech® connect connectors for 7.5 mm profiles. Numerous special shapes such as the 150° angle connector are also available. The popular benefits such as the drill alignment groove and the easy-to-combine dimensions also prove their worth in the model construction range.
The model construction range also includes several profiles made from plastic, brass and stainless steel, as well as parts of the logika® range. Accessories, screws, nuts and metric threaded rods round off the range.
Checker plate, structures, perforations, grids:
sheets for innumerable uses
A huge selection of sheets provides the right product for many applications. The alfer® sheets come in many different thicknesses and materials. Multiple different finish options are also available from useful to decorative: checker plate, structures, perforations and grids as well as refined surface with a wood or stone effect that are more UV, water and scratch-resistant than conventional coatings thanks to a highly advanced manufacturing procedure.
Prismatech and Multitube:
sheets, plates and films are truly simple to frame.
The profiles for framing and stabilising the sheets are particularly practical. alfer® offers clever options to this end through Prismatech and Multitube. With Prismatech aluminium profiles and the related brackets and hinge-joints, sheets, plates and even films can be framed in a ultra-slimline design. The ingenious Multitube profiles already come equipped with a fixing groove and simply need to be cut to length and connected and fixed with the right accessory.
Checker plate edge and corner profiles not only provide impact protection but can also be used as an eye-catching design element.
All types of profiles: the home improvement store classic
Flat bars, brackets with even and uneven branches, U-profiles, round bars, rectangular tubes and a whole range of other profiles. These form the basis for you to turn your ideas into reality. The classic semi-finished products for DIY enthusiasts and professionals are made from aluminium with anodised or untreated finishes, as well as many other materials such as PVC, stainless steel, iron, galvanised steel and brass.
