Hollaender's new 130AE adjustable elbows, that can be adjusted to any angle and accommodate different rail sizes, has been chosen as the fitting of choice for Aluminum Offshore due to its high performance standards and cost effectiveness.

The new fitting met all of Aluminum Offshore’s performance standards and was the most cost effective solution considered.

Aluminum Offshore Pte Ltd is a Singapore based manufacturer of helidecks and other structures used by the off shore petroleum industry. The company recently chose Hollaender Manufacturing to supply the aluminum adjustable fittings it needed to complete a new railing system to be installed at a structure in Norway’s North Sea. Aluminum Offshore needed an elbow fitting for the project that could be adjusted to any angle and accommodate two different rail sizes.

Hollaender had recently developed the 130AE series of adjustable elbows constructed completely from 6063-T6 aluminum alloy. The new fitting met all of Aluminum Offshore’s performance standards and was the most cost effective solution considered.

The Hollaender 130AE Series fittings are available in 1 inch IPS, 1 ¼ inch IPS and 1 ½ inch IPS. They are an ideal solution in applications where handrail must be connected at corners and transitions, and where angles are variable. Aluminum Offshore used the 130AE-8 to connect 1 ½ inch IPS top rails at transitions and the 130AE-6 to connect smaller 1 inch IPS mid-rails.

According to Mr. Ron Crebo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Hollaender, “The fact Aluminum Offshore is in close proximity to low cost manufacturing alternatives in countries including Taiwan, China and Malaysia, yet chose Hollaender for this project, is a testament to our engineering ingenuity, product quality and the cost effectiveness of our fittings. We appreciate the trust Aluminum Offshore put in our team of application specialists.”
