Standard product features


  • Extruded aluminum alloy blades in grade 6063-T6.
  • Standard lengths: Up to 6000 mm. Other lengths are available, subject to minimum quantities.
  • All Airfoil® blades incorporate screw ports within the extrusion, allowing self-tapping screws or bolts to be passed through supporting end plates and into the end of the blades. This method of fixing is strong enough to support the blade even at its maximum span.
  • A range of blade support fixings are available for fixing to a supporting structure (by others).
  • All fixing brackets are pre-drilled for use with specific sized fixings.
