Aluminium Capping

Aluminium capping provides an aesthetically pleasing and economic finish to a parapet wall or boundary wall. Aluminium wall cappings are made specifically for each project to individual specifications, sizes and profiles. Guttercrest pressed metal cappings can be fabricated for ramped, stepped and serpentine parapet walls. Unlike stone wall cappings aluminium cappings are lightweight, versatile, adaptable and very quick to install while offering long term weatherproof parapet wall protection. Matching pier caps or column capping are also available.

Capping Fixing

The capping is fixed directly to a suitable background with no brackets.

Capping Profiles

Our standard cappings have a flat level top but are also available with weather struck or dual pitched top. We can incorporate a Bullnose, Ogee, I-beam or any other profile into the aluminium wall capping’s front face. For any specially fabricated aluminium architectural capping please contact our technical team on 01691 663300.

Capping Fittings

We manufacture aluminium wall capping fittings including angles, stop ends, T-junctions, raking angles, apex angles, upstand stop ends, stepped junctions between capping sizes – we offer a complete aluminium capping system.

Radius or Curved Capping

We specialise in curved capping. If your project requires curved, radius or radii cappings, either true curve or facetted capping, give us a call. Horizontal, vertical, and most complex curves are achievable.
