What item profiles can do

The perfect profile for every application: The MB Building Kit System includes aluminium profiles in five sizes (Lines 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12) and a whole range of designs.

The lines differ in terms of their modular dimensions and the size of the profile groove.

What item profiles can do

What item profiles can do

  1. modular dimension: Each line is based on square profiles with various external dimensions.
  2. profile groove: The size and load-carrying capacity of the groove increase in line with the modular dimension. Most profile connections are anchored in the groove. The groove also serves as an anchor point for panel elements, etc.           
  3. core bore:  The core bore offers a stable fastening point at the end faces of the profiles. It can also be used as a conduit for compressed air. 
  4. lightweight profiles: Additional cavities reduce weight but also lower maximum tensile loading.
  5. closed grooves: Profile variants with closed surfaces offer more than just aesthetic advantages. They are also easy to clean and eliminate the problem of dirt accumulation in grooves.

Profiles 5: Compact and lightweight profiles

Thanks to their low weight and compact dimensions, item Line 5 profiles are ideal for constructions that are elegant but stable. For example, Line 5 profiles with flat cross-sections are used as carriage profiles in linear systems. Profiles from this line are also perfect for building lightweight frames and can accommodate a maximum tensile load of 500 N on the groove (M5 bolts).

Profiles 6: Weight-optimised profiles

Line 6 profiles are a good choice for use in strong, weight-optimised tables, racks and frames. They support a slimline design and use resources sparingly, while variants with closed grooves create a harmonious appearance. The maximum extraction force on the groove is 1,750 N (M6 bolts).


Profiles 8: The standard material for design engineers

Line 8 profiles from item are the originals of the aluminium building kit system. They offer the widest range of variants and are robust all-rounders that can withstand tensile loading of up to 5,000 N and use M8 bolts.


Profiles 10: Maximum load-carrying capacity for demanding applications

Line 10 profiles are used when heavy loads need to be supported but space is limited. The high-strength profile flanks accommodate tensile loading of up to 7,000 N per screw connection (M10). These added-value profiles are also resistant to pre-tension losses. Lightweight Profiles 10e can be used in machine areas involving low loads.


Profiles 12: Our strongest profiles

The strongest line in the MB Building Kit System is Line 12. The grooves accommodate extraction forces of up to 10,000 N per screw connection. The solid profiles are perfect for building high-strength frames and machine bases. Line 12 can also carry even heavy attachments.


Special applications? item angled and flat profiles!

Special profiles without grooves are used as edge protection or grip rails. Strips and angled profiles are available in a range of sizes for all types of special constructions. They are screwed to panel elements.
