Why We Offer Aluminium Furniture For Outdoor Living
Aluminium is a versatile and incredibly beneficial material often utilised in the manufacturing of outdoor furniture due to its unique combination of properties. It’s renowned for its strength, durability, corrosion resistance, and low maintenance requirements, all of which are critical in the context of outdoor furniture that is subject to varying weather conditions. A wide array of products, such as dining chairs and tables, accent and side tables, sectionals, and umbrella poles, are commonly crafted from this robust metal.
Anodised Aluminium In Furniture Manufacturing
One of the processes that aluminium undergoes in our production is anodising. Anodising is an electrochemical process that enhances the natural oxide layer on the surface of aluminium. The resultant anodised aluminium is not only much more resistant to corrosion and wear but also has an improved aesthetic appeal. The process provides a robust finish that doesn’t peel or chip easily. It also allows for the dyeing of the surface into a wide range of colours, offering aesthetic variety without compromising on durability.
The Advantages Of Powder-Coated Aluminium
In addition to anodised aluminium, we extensively use powder-coated aluminium in our products. Powder coating is a finishing technique that involves applying a protective and decorative layer of powder to the aluminium surface, which is then heated to form a ‘skin.’ This process results in a finish that is more durable, resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other types of finishes.
Lightweight Nature Of Aluminium
Powder-coated aluminium holds several advantages, with one being its lightweight nature. Despite its strength and durability, aluminium is significantly lighter than other commonly used materials like wrought iron or steel. This lightness facilitates easy repositioning of the furniture, making it user-friendly and adaptable to various outdoor settings.
Colour Variety In Aluminium Furniture
Another advantage is the wide spectrum of colours that can be achieved through powder coating. Since the coating process involves using coloured powders, it’s possible to create furniture in virtually any hue, allowing for greater customization to match different outdoor décors and themes. Moreover, because the colour is part of the finish itself, it is less likely to fade over time, ensuring the furniture retains its vibrant appearance for years.
Aluminium – An Ideal Blend Of Durability, Aesthetics And Ease Of Maintenance
Overall, the use of aluminium, whether anodised or powder-coated, in outdoor furniture provides an ideal blend of durability, aesthetic flexibility, and ease of maintenance. Its lightweight nature and colour variety ensure that our furniture pieces can fit in seamlessly with a broad range of outdoor settings, meeting the diverse needs and preferences of our customers.
