Aluminium Strip

Recommended Posts

Looking to source some aluminium strip circa 1.5 inches wide by 1/8 inch thick by about 4 feet long. Does anyone know any supplier in the Broads area (Potter Heigham).

I always use Ace Metals, on the North Western outskirts of Norwich, which is about 20 miles away from Stalham.

Whenever you want a specific section and size of metal (ally, steel, brass or stainless), I've found local DIY stores only keep very thin "trim" sections and angle.

Ace Metals is a metal supply wholesaler that has always been happy to supply any quantity, even cut lengths.

A couple of months ago I bought just 12" of 50mm x 50mm by 3mm stainless steel angle, cut off a 4 metre length for me, for £6, perfect...

By comparison, "superstores" like B&Q are useless, far less choice, and much more expensive.
