Building and Construction

The durability, versatility, formability and aesthetic characteristics of aluminum enhance a wide variety of buildings throughout the world -- from large corporate headquarters to single-family homes. Aluminum–based products are highly decorative and offer excellent heat and sound insulation, resistance to corrosion and weathering, and a high strength-to-weight ratio, among other advantages.

Aleris is a recognized leader in aluminum sheet for building products.  We used recycled material of industry-leading quality and consistency in our sheet long before it was the thing to do. 

With a keen knowledge of customer technical requirements, we’ve developed a variety of non-anodized and anodized aluminum products incorporating the latest design trends and proven ideal for facade cladding and other end uses. Our non-clad and clad scrap-absorbing alloys are used in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Window and door frames
  • Window sills
  • Facade design
  • Roofing
  • Wall cladding

Additionally, Aleris is one of the leading suppliers of aluminum strips for multilayer tube manufacturers.
