The purpose of Aluminium Angle is to provide protection of a tiled surface against chipping and wear. As a more economical alternative to brass or stainless steel, aluminium is widely used and has the flexibility of being able to be produced in a wide range of finishes and colours that can be utilised with various ceramic tiles and natural stones. The aluminium angle can also be installed between two alternative types of flooring to create a border or decorative strip. More recently, aluminium angle has been installed vertically to finish off tiling around doors, windows and walls where an adjoining wall is not being tiled. Notching of the fixing leg is another option in instances where a protective edge trim is required to follow an intricate shape or curve.
