Aquarium lovers around the world are adopting aluminum as their material of choice when constructing their aquatic biomes. Our anodized aluminum aquarium stands are corrosion resistant and will outperform similar steel and wood frames over the test of time. The strength and versatility of our various sized profiles are perfect for creating a unique structure for your aquarium stand, regardless of size or weight. All of our designs go through a structural analysis process to make sure that they will stay standing for years to come. If you need any assistance with your design, please reach out to us and include:
- Gallon capacity of your tank
- Ideal Length x Depth x Height of your final stand
- Do you need leveling feet or full horizontal lengths across the bottom?
- Do you need lower bracing for a shelf to house a Sump / ATO? If so, what is the gallon capacity?
Aquarium Stand Q & A's
Does this aquarium stand come with a Table Top?
No, but we can include one with the material of your choice. Please supply a size (if it differs from the stand size), Thickness and material preference.
Are there more size options that isn’t shown here?
Yes! We receive daily inquiries for custom sized stands. Please reach out to us at email@example.com for a quote on your custom design.
Does this stand come with bracing for a lower shelf?
No, the price does not include bracing for a lower shelf, however, we can easily add the bracing. Please include an approximate weight that will be applied to the shelf.
Are there other colors available?
Yes, black and white powder coat are often common options. We also work together with local powder coat companies to provide our customers with custom color options as well.
Do leveling feet come with the standard stand options?
Yes, our leveling feet are industrial grade and can accept loads of up to 2,000lbs each. If you prefer not to have leveling feet, please let us know and we will alter the design accordingly. There are also various stud lengths and pad diameters available.
What fasteners do you use to build your aquarium stands?
Our preferred method of connecting extrusion is our Quick Connectors, as they are very strong, easy to tighten, loosen, and reposition. Other options would include Connection Screws, Connection Plates, Gussets, or Corner Brackets.
What kind of material are the Quick Connectors made out of?
Our Quick Connectors come in Clear Zinc and Stainless Steel. While the clear zinc coated quick connectors are corrosion resistant and hold up really well in a salt water environment, the stainless steel quick connectors are unbeatable in their corrosion resistance.
How will I know if my aquarium stand is strong enough to hold my tank?
We will run a load analysis to see how the stand behaves under the "worst case scenario", or maximum weight that will be applied to it. This helps identify design issues and solidifies the capabilities of the design.
Is shipping included in the price?
No, but we can provide an estimate based on the packages size, weight and destination.
"This company was a pleasure to work with."
We had a tight schedule to keep and in a way it was unrealistic, but Framing tech did everything in there power to help us. The project is completed and the frames we made with this company are incredibly strong durable and will last for decades. I highly recommend using this company if you are looking for aluminum extrusions.
