Aluminium is a material ideally suited for construction due to it’s properties of lightweight, strength and durability with minimal maintenance.
Reduced loads on support structures ease of handling and lower transportation costs are advantages again because it is Light.
It’s high strength means less mass is needed in specific applications.
An extended building life is assured even in aggressive environments. Common industrial pollutants such as ammonia, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide all have very little effect on aluminium due to its resistance to corrosion.
Aluminium is also recommended in coastal and marine environments since the effect of sodium chloride on the metal is minimal.
Architects are provided with an infinite range of design possibilities. Extruded sections offer well defined profiles with clean edges and fine detailing. It can be curved, tapered, welded and cut to the most challenging and dynamic geometrics.by virtue of its Versatility.
Buildings have a longer life and reduced maintenance requirements due to it’s Durability.
It is Non-toxic and therefore safe for plants, animals and humans
Like most metals, aluminium does not burn and can be used to help provide fire resistance in some applications.
It can be recycled at the end of the building life.
