A Buyer's Guide To Aluminum Outdoor Furniture
If you are shopping for outdoor furniture, you know that there are a wide variety of options in materials, costs, and styles. You may like the feel of wood furniture, but worry that it is not durable enough to withstand the elements. Or you may appreciate the aesthetic of wrought iron furniture, but need to consider the fact that it’s heavy, it rusts, and it may not provide the lasting benefits you want for the cost.
Choosing the best material for your patio furniture can indeed be a somewhat complicated endeavor. If you are similarly torn, and just want to get the best looking and most resilient products for your dollar, then you might want to consider aluminum furniture instead. High in quality, sophisticated in appearance, and relatively low in cost, cast aluminum outdoor furniture may be your ideal choice.
Here are just a few of the benefits of aluminum:
1. Cast aluminum outdoor furniture is strong
Thanks to its wide availability as the most common metal found in Earth’s crust, aluminum already has a long history of use in industry and engineering. Over the years, developments in how we work with aluminum have made it very strong and versatile. In fact, it is commonly used for important components in the automotive industry as well as in spacecraft and rockets.
Aluminum is highly regarded for its resistance to corrosion and rust, making it perfect for use in outdoor furniture – since your patio dining sets are always exposed to the elements, it’s a good idea to make them out of some of Earth’s toughest stuff!
2. Cast aluminum patio furniture is extremely light weight
In addition to its characteristic resilience and toughness, aluminum outdoor furniture is remarkably lightweight. Should you wish to move your chairs and tables into the sun or out of the rain, it won’t take much time or strength. And should you ever need to move, you won’t have any problem loading cast aluminum furniture into the back of a truck. It’s so lightweight, you won’t believe how strong it is.
3. Cast aluminum furniture looks great!
Modern cast aluminum furniture isn’t restricted to the plain and dull aesthetic of most aluminum chairs (think beach chairs and other crude fold-ups). The technique involved in casting aluminum sees the liquid metal poured into intricate sand casts, resulting in incredible detail and limitless design possibilities.
Because aluminum furniture manufacturers do not have to worry about the weight of their material, you will find that cast aluminum furniture may feature more intricate detailing and more comfort than its wrought iron or wood counterparts. With all the aesthetic appeal of wrought iron and wood, but without the bulky weight and biodegradability, why wouldn’t you choose cast aluminum?
As a bonus, any of our high-quality cast aluminum furniture can be paired with luxury Sunbrella fabric – the best in the industry. This state-of-the-art fabric is mildew resistant, water repellent, quick to air-dry, and designed to remain bright and colorful despite the vagaries of time and weather. It even comes with a three-year warranty that completely covers any loss of color and any damage or weakening due to weather exposure.
If you are exploring outdoor furniture options, try cast aluminum with Sunbrella fabric. With strength and durability, fresh designs, and lightweight convenience, aluminum outdoor furniture is the best choice for furnishing your patio or outdoor space for years to come.
