Extruded Solar Panel Frames – 85+ Stock Shapes & Custom Profiles

High-quality aluminum frames help protect your solar PV module from the lodgment of dust, water, and other unwanted elements. To supply custom aluminum frames and mounting systems, we’ve partnered with ISO 9001:2015 certified aluminum solar frame manufacturers in India. Our Western-managed team is on the ground there to ensure easy communication, on-time delivery, and to make every single project a success.

Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ): 500 kgs (0.55 US Tons) per shape

Alloy Selection

Aluminum alloys in the 6000 series, especially 6063 aluminum, are the most common for solar panel frames. The 6063 alloy is lightweight and offers very good corrosion resistance — which is important since panel frames are exposed to the elements. It can be heat treated to enhance its strength (i.e. -T5 temper) and 6061 aluminum can be used for projects that place more emphasis on strength than on corrosion resistance.

Surface Finishing

Solar panel frames are generally ordered in either mill finish or anodized finish. Keep in mind that mill finish extrusions are more corrosion resistant than steel frames — steel frames nearly always require galvanization or painting. Anodization can be used to enhance aluminum’s corrosion resistance even more — making your frames suitable for exceptionally harsh environments (i.e. sandstorms) and improving their appearance.

Other Secondary Services

Aluminum frames and mounting brackets often require additional secondary operations such as drilling, cutting, stamping, or CNC machining. Once your aluminum profiles have been extruded, we can provide these additional services as well, exactly to your requirements. Having these operations performed through our trusted network of partners in India can save you the time and expense of doing so at your own facilities.
