High quality and safe

item develops all its profiles and components in-house and sets the very highest quality standards. For example, not only have our profiles always been anodized to ensure their surfaces are protected for the long term, we also use a particularly complex and high-quality anodized surface covering that won’t be scraped off by the first scratches.

High quality and safe
Specialised and resilient

Specialised and resilient

Special tasks call for special solutions. That is why item aluminium profiles also come with smooth, unbroken closed surfaces for easy cleaning, with radiused outside surfaces and as Profiles X with minimal edge radii. Or perhaps you need stainless steel profiles? Or profiles made of metal-free high-performance plastic? Discover the numerous materials and designs!
