Benefits of aluminium

The essential characteristics of aluminium make it an ideal material for construction. It is light, strong, durable and requires minimal maintenance. It is flexible and easy to handle - this gives it tremendous potential for design. It can be curved, tapered, extruded and cut to the most challenging and dynamic geometries. Where it is cut, the metal's innate resistance to corrosion means that the trimmed edge does not need to be protected. It can be finished in a vast range of colours through powder coating or anodising.

Our expertise in profile design means that we have a huge and fully integrated product range that provides visually stunning yet cost effective solutions to almost any application from a domestic conservatory right through to high rise building envelopes. With the earliest installations of aluminium in construction still withstanding the test of time after well over 100 years, it is evident that aluminium is a genuinely "long life" product. However, when it does come to the end of its life, recycling is easy, energy efficient and total.
