Why is aluminium so popular?
For a long time, the most common complaint about metal garden furniture was how short their lifespan was. You couldn’t leave them outside all year round or they could rust, they were extremely heavy, and needed a lot of maintenance. Cast Iron is notoriously bad for weathering, as when it reacts with oxygen it creates iron oxide, also known as rust. Rust can cause the structural stability to crumble and become dangerous. Aluminium is not only the most readily available metal, it cannot rust.
What are the key aspects of aluminium?
Aluminium oxide actually works the same as rust, as it is a chemical reaction between two elements, but the outcomes are very different. Where iron is damaged by oxygen, Aluminium oxide actually works to protect the aluminium from other elements. It also requires minimal input from you in order to keep it healthy. As nothing can cause it to rust or deteriorate, there's little need to keep an eye on your aluminium garden furniture.
Easy to move around
Due to aluminium's density, it is one of the lightest metals. Even though aluminium is light, it is also very strong. It can take the brunt of everyday use, safely hold a decent amount of weight, and means it is easily transported. One of the most compelling aspects of aluminium garden furniture, is how effortlessly it can be moved around and if needed, stowed away.
The skies the limit!
Each material used in furniture construction has its own benefits, but aluminium feels like it was made to be used in furniture. Everyone has their own style and personality that they want to convey with the things they buy, and the things they display. Aluminium can be made into a varying degree of shapes and sizes due to its malleability.
