The System


The Dorlec Construction System was first developed to frame consoles for the British navy in the 1940s. It has since grown in both popularity and component parts until today the aluminium enclosure system is utilized worldwide, and has over 100 component parts.

Strong, yet lightweight with heavy-duty and light-duty applications, the aluminium framing system simplifies the production of modular enclosures for such varied applications as:

  • Electronic Consoles and Cabinets
  • Machine Housings and Guards
  • Instrument Housings
  • Testing Equipment
  • Semiconductor Housings
  • Full-Spectrum Light Enclosures
  • Environmental Enclosures
  • Sound Enclosures
  • Computer Housings, Racks and Guards
  • Card Enclosures
  • Hydraulic, Pneumatic and Fluid Systems Enclosures
  • Studio, Movie, and Theatrical Sets and Equipment
  • Display Cases
  • Ergonomic Workstations
  • High Quality Desks
  • Defence
  • Aerospace
  • Nuclear Research
  • Petrochemical
  • Biomedical
  • Ecological
  • Communications
  • Laser Technology
  • Robotic
  • Automotive
  • Laboratory
  • University/ School
  • Many other Industrial and Commercial Applications

Comprised of aluminium extruded members, matching die-cast and forged corners, and complementary components and fixings, the Dorlec system is available in two distinct yet connectable series (or sizes), each of which are available in square or radius profiles. The Dorlec system includes 90 degree members and members of varied angles. This makes it far more diverse than other aluminium framing systems.

The only tools required to assemble the frames are a saw, spanner and screwdriver, eliminating the need for time consuming and costly welding and metal fitting. Thus, the Dorlec system is ideal for metal fabricators and machinists working in facilities as diverse as small job shops to large industrial plants.

The Dorlec Construction System is distributed world-wide by Davalow Dorlec Systems Limited of Wolverhampton, England. The Davalow Group has operated in Wolverhampton for over 40 years, and holds an ISO 9001: 2000 Certificate.
