What are cold roll formed profiles?

Cold-formed profiles are steel profiles that are formed at room temperature. Rolling steel profiles into the desired shape is done in several steps. 

Cold-formed profiles are known for their precise dimensions and constant thickness of the material. We are happy to help you configure your profiles. You can contact us for cold-formed U-profiles and cold-formed angle profiles, but also for very complex profiles, custom made for your project. 

Cold-formed profiles - some characteristics

  • Blank, metal-colored surface
  • Usually smooth surface
  • Stronger (harder) than hot-rolled steel, but less elongation and formability
  • Lighter (in weight) than hot-rolled steel
