It's aluminum and can deal with the weight.

I am in the process of building my own dolly track. I'm going to use T6061 Auminum tubing instead of steel or stainless to conserve on weight. I'm not concerned with the softness of the aluminum vs. steel track as it will only be used on our productions. Would a .25 inch wall thickness be stiff enough (same as Speedrail), or should I consult a Mechanical Engineering, Strength of Material text?
My dolly track have aluminum tubes with diameter 40 mm and thickness 2 mm.
I use of my dolly system more 3 years and don't have any problem with surface of tubes.
The dolly can carry two or more mans and big crane.
yes, of course, if i can i prefer of tubes 50 mm x 3 mm.
