Why Choose Aluminum For Your Application? Here Are Six Reasons.
1. Lightweight/Easy to Push
Aluminum weighs (2.7 grams per cubic centimeter), which is less than half of that of iron (7.8 g/cm3).
The most important advantage of aluminum for the design of heavy duty, yet lightweight and cost-efficient structures is its ease of formability. An interesting aspect compared to competing materials is the availability of extruded, open and closed profiles, with intricate shapes, in different wall thicknesses.
3. Cost Effective
Focus is increasingly directed toward the system cost and life cycle cost analysis of equipment. Our products carry a Lifetime Guarantee against rust and corrosion as well as a Five-Year Guarantee against material defects and workmanship.

Aluminum can be recycled again and again, saving about 95% of the energy required for primary production.
Some of the most stylish vehicles, buildings, consumer products, fashion items and accessories have employed aluminum – both for its functional and also for its aesthetic properties; its durability, formability and natural finish.
Aluminum — even unpainted and uncoated — resists corrosion by water. Its use can avoid the substantial extra costs of galvanizing, coating and painting required for some competing materials. Aluminum does not rust. It is no weakened or embrittled by desert heat, northern cold, or the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight.
