Cutting and Shaping Your Aluminium
When cutting or shaping your on-site decking you may require some in-expensive tools, we recommend the following to help you install our product safely:
In order to cut the decking on site the best thing you can use would be a chop saw, the decking is really easy to cut so nothing special will be needed with regards to type. Ali-Deck’s CEO personally uses the following machine with an aluminium blade: DeWALT 240v Mitre Saw
The blade you will need would be the following type: Freud 216mm Blade with 30mm Bore Diameter
If you would like to cut the boards down the length, then you can use an evolution circular saw with a TCT multi material blade as shown in the cutting video below. Evolution 1600w 185mm Circular Saw
We also notch the decking using a skinny (cutting) disc on a grinder, something like the following would be perfect: Norton 5” Cutting Disc
Regarding cutting to length in a factory, we would recommend the following to cut to length: Non-Ferrous Semi-Automatic Circular Saws
