The different types of fixings for aluminum profiles

The fixings, connections, reinforcements and joints in the elcom range are designed in a clever, functional and efficient manner. These elements play a crucial role in the assembly of mechanical structures. They are made from high quality materials to ensure durability.

They are available in a variety of models to meet different needs and assembly configurations. Among the types of fixings offered, we find:

Right angle fasteners with machining(s)

Standard fastener

The standard fastener allows a right angle assembly guaranteeing blocking power with a minimum of machining.
The standard flange ensures optimum load application, with profiles correctly positioned between them.

Universal fastener

The universal fastener is used to assemble all types of profiles and in all positions. The profile installed with the universal fixing can be moved along the groove.
It is specially recommended for profiles that need to be moved or fitted into an existing structure.
Universal fastener also exist in double universal fastener.

Central fastener

The central fastener connects the profiles perpendicularly and releases the grooves facing each other.
This option is advantageous when profile grooves are used to accommodate infill. Thus, special machining of the filling in the corner area becomes unnecessary.
The filling can be inserted directly into the grooves of the profiles.

90° direct fastener

Used for fixing profiles 8 at right angles. Allows you to lock the profile at any angle. Tapping central hole M8x18.


The use of bracket kits with suitable screws and washers is recommended. Thus, the installation of the brackets is particularly simple to carry out.

In a particular application, the bracket allows you to fix trunking. The rounded inner edge prevents damage to the cables.

Angle bracket

The angle connection allows an aesthetic assembly of three profiles without groove.

Ideal for building tables, covers, etc…

Tapping the central hole of the profile is necessary.

Right angle fastener without machining

Automatic fasteners

Automatic fastener offers an innovative solution for joining profiles by adhesion.
It is quick and simple to install because no machining of the profiles is necessary. Thanks to its special shape, the fixing is put in place by simple screwing.
It is possible to put the fixings in place afterwards and move them in just a few simple steps.
Automatic bindings also exist in double automatic bindings.

Angle fasteners with machining


The joint allow solid assemblies with an adjustable angle from 0° to 180°.
Joint can be standard or rolling.

Mitre fastener

Mitre fastener allow profiles to be assembled at any angle from 30° to 90°.
The profile groove remains free to receive fillings.
Nail fasteners also come in double mitre fastener.

Angle fastener without machining

Corner element

T1 corner elements are mounted at an angle of 45° between two profiles or between them. They are fixed by Chc rounded head screws ISO 7380 and DIN 125 washers. The profile to be connected can be screwed using two universal fixings (remove the anti-twist device) and Chc rounded head screws ISO 7380.
The T2 corner elements are fixed with Chc pan head screws, universal fixings or automatic fixings and a special nut.

Fasteners for profile assemblies with machining

Flat assembly

Flat assembly make it possible to create a rigid connection between two profiles assembled one on top of the other.
Also used to fix the end of a profile to the grooved face of another profile.
The two components of the flat assembly are mounted between the profiles to be connected.
A tightening handle passing through the profile can be added to facilitate manual adjustment.

Hinge brackets and flange brackets

Hinge brackets are used to fix two profiles of the same line on top of each other.
They are generally used in pairs, a hinge bracket and a flange bracket or two flange brackets.
The flange bracket can be used in combination with the hinge bracket or with a second flange bracket to allow the fixing of two crossed profiles. Loosening the screw or handle allows rotation and movement along the two grooves.

Fasteners for profile assemblies without machining

Direct fastener

Direct fastener allow robust assembly without machining of two profiles 8 coming into contact via their external surfaces. The profiles can also be placed in parallel over a certain length.
It is possible to move the two profiles in the direction of the groove.
Direct fastener is particularly suitable for assembling the profiles of the ball socket block guides with other profiles, with the possibility of movement and without machining.

Fastener for parallel profile assemblies without machining

Parallel fastener

To fix two parallel line 8 profiles at a distance of 12 mm.
Ease of use: the two half-parts of the fixing engage in the grooves of the profiles facing each other and position them. The fixation is then blocked by tightening the internal screw.

Connecting profile

Connecting profile 8 40 is machined in pairs with holes of ⌀ 11 mm (drilling distance 200 mm) for the fixing screws.
The use of cage nuts (fixed positioning and anti-twist device) allows lateral mounting. Chc screws (tightening torque M = 34 Nm) DIN 912-M10x60, M10x100 or M10x140 are used with the appropriate spacing of the connecting profiles.
Possibility of hiding the junction or the heads of screws or cage nuts in a dust-tight manner using a cover profile 32.

The elcom range

The elcom range offers a variety of clever, functional and high-performance fasteners to meet all profile assembly needs. Whether for perpendicular, crossed, parallel connections, with or without machining, or even for corrosive environments, each type of fastener is designed to ensure a solid, durable connection adapted to the specific requirements of the mechanical structure.
