Ballistic and Hurricane Resistant Aluminum

Isotec uses a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for our doors and frames in our Safety Entrances™. The 6061 alloy has 64{0da0b4c47deb7adb6cb4b94258fb97930383627607256e0b73b442c6f21152f9} greater strength to weight ratio, 72{0da0b4c47deb7adb6cb4b94258fb97930383627607256e0b73b442c6f21152f9} greater tensile strength, and 75{0da0b4c47deb7adb6cb4b94258fb97930383627607256e0b73b442c6f21152f9} greater shear strength than the 6063-T5 alloy used by others. Strength to weight is a rather self-defined expression. The 6061 alloy weighs less but is stronger than the 6063 alloy. This strength to weight ratio is reflected in the higher tensile and shear strength ratios of the alloy. Tensile strength is Read More
