What sets AluFab’s stands apart from the competition?
We use 1.5″ x 3″ extrusion for our tops and legs in order to maximize strength. Our design allows the 3″ thick aluminum profile to handle the bulk of your system’s weight, and then we double down by having that 3″ profile supported by a 3″ wide leg.
Sturdy Leveling Feet
Our leveling feet (included in every standard kit) consist of a 3/8-16 rod threaded in to a 3/4″ base plate. That allows the weight of the system to be balanced over the feet for maximum sturdiness. Our leveling feet also come with a bottom rubber pad so they will not scratch or scuff your floor.
Design & Customization Help
If your tank does not fit one of our standard kits, Contact Us and we will help design a stand that fits your system and your vision perfectly! Customized shelving, panels, doors, and accessories are also easily added to an extruded aluminum frame.
We pride ourselves in our customer service! Submit a Contact Us form and we will respond promptly, or give us a call and get through directly to one of our team members. We employ exactly zero robotic operators!

T-slotted Aluminum Extrusion and Why it is growing as the preferred material
T-slotted aluminum extrusion has been used in the industrial and manufacturing sector for decades. It quickly became a favorite because it’s modularity, ease of assembly, and ability to build sturdy structures without any welding. It was only a matter of time before aquarium enthusiasts saw these properties as a major advantage in the use of building stands!
You can mount virtually anything to your stand using brackets and t-nuts. It is also easy to add, adjust, or customize on the fly because most features or changes can be added post-assembly. Paneling, doors, and tops are also easily incorporated.
Sleek, Sophisticated Appearance
Customers love the sleek metallic look of an aluminum extrusion aquarium stand as opposed to the “unfinished look” of a traditional wood stand. The extrusion is available in both clear and black anodized aluminum, with the clear anodized finish providing a metallic silver look, while the black anodized gives a dark contrast.
Easy to Assemble Kits
AluFab provides your stand in kit-form, with all pieces labeled, all hardware separated, and any machining that is required will be finished when it arrives at your door. Our team will also provide a reference sheet that shows where each labeled piece goes within the assembly, as well as an instruction packet that provides helpful information about t-slotted extruded aluminum and the fasteners you will be using in your kit.
The only tool you will need to assemble is a ball-end Allen wrench which are included in every kit. If any issues or questions arise during assembly, our team is standing by to answer your call or email and instruct you through it.
Assembly available as well
AluFab offers full assembly as an option, and your stand can be shipped to your door complete and ready to use.
Customized To Your Specifications
