BAL Group is a leading supplier to the lighting industry, delivering aluminium extrusions for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.
Aluminium extrusion is ideal for this type of application as it allows design features to be built in to address specific issues for a product’s application. At BAL Group we use our expertise to take advantage of the benefits of aluminium and the extrusion process in order to help our customers produce a product with optimal function.
Lights generate heat which is an important technical consideration to take into account and the use of aluminium is integral to the solution. The thermal properties of aluminium can be used in the design of the aluminium profile to conduct heat away.
Heat sinks are used in these applications as a compliment to aluminium extrusions as their fins increase the surface area and dissipate heat into the environment that the light will be used in.
The use of aluminium also allows the use of a material which is as environmentally friendly as possible. Aluminium is endlessly recyclable, offering no loss of material properties.
