    i've been trying to get hold of some Aluminium or s/s trim to line a hatchway. Its got to be 50mm wide with approx 30mm edges.

    Any idea where to find this? i've phoned dozens of places and can't find anything remotely suitable.

    Closest i've got it UPVC 'L' shaped trim to double up with which isn't really what I need.

    Thanks

    something like this with the middle bit 50mm and the sides 30mm and not to thick maybe 2-3mm.

    Its really just to dress the edges of the hatchway so not looking for anything too heavy/rigid.

    Have you tried a local sheet metal workshop? It would be straightforward for them to guillotine and fold some sheet.

    yep tried that apparently dimensions don’t fit machine.
    yep that’s the way I’m leaning.
    actually ordered ( and returned) something similar but that’s very expensive and too heavy duty.

    You need to search for imperial sizes for something off the shelf.
