The marine-grade aluminum we use is extruded to our specifications; demonstrating excellent weathering abilities due to its rust prohibiting properties and strength. The naturally-occurring protective layer called aluminum oxide, is automatically regenerated if scratched off. This corrosion shield prevents degradation from the sun, salt, fuels, and water—some of the major reasons why steel, concrete, wood and other materials deteriorate…..providing cost savings during transportation, installation, and throughout its long life span. Maintenance is virtually eliminated while product longevity is increased.
Aluminum is cooler to the touch than wood, steel and most composite wood and suitable for any climate as aluminum stays cool to the touch even in the heat of summer yet is strong enough to support heavy snow loads.
Aluminum is the perfect material, as it is extremely durable and has a favorable weight to strength ratio.
