Cast aluminum furniture is not to be confused with aluminum furniture, which is typically constructed of tubular frame pieces that are welded together. Cast aluminum furniture is always solid, resulting in a heavier product. As a result of the use of molds (molten metal is poured into the molds to create frames), cast aluminum patio tables and chairs are often more intricately designed. One of the reasons they appear to be elegant and sophisticated is because of their design.
The number of phone calls we receive about whether or not we supply cast iron staircases increases dramatically during a typical week. In most cases, it becomes clear during the course of the conversation that what they are really looking for is a traditional style of stair design. Because it was inexpensive and simple to manufacture, cast iron is synonymous with metalwork from these periods. Manufacturing, on the other hand, has progressed since then, and new materials are now available. It was clear that aluminum would be the best choice when it came to selecting the material for our staircases. It makes no difference whether you consult with interior designers or other homeowners for their opinions on the subject. When it comes to patio furniture, the experts will tell you to opt for cast aluminum rather than cast iron or any other material, for obvious reasons. Because cast aluminum patio furniture provides a variety of benefits and features while still maintaining classic design elements, this is not surprising at all!Cast aluminum patio furniture is an excellent choice for your outdoor living space for a variety of reasons. Is long-lasting and has a high level of durability because of the way cast aluminum is constructed, as previously stated, it is extremely durable. Also, it has the ability to withstand the harshest of conditions. On average, your cast aluminum patio furniture would last you at least 15 to 20 years, if not longer. When it comes to chipping and scratching, iron is more susceptible. Cast aluminum patio furniture also does not rust, which is an added advantage. That is something you will appreciate, especially if you live in a coastal city or somewhere where the humidity is high. Styles vary depending on the product. Irrespective of whether your preference is for a bistro, a classic, or a modern look. You will undoubtedly find a design that complements your individual style as well as the overall theme of your home here. Because of the innovative powder coating technology that we now have, they are also available in virtually any color you can imagine. As well as these options, you can also select from a variety of textured finishes, which is particularly useful for those seeking a more "aged" appearance. Maintaining it is a piece of cake. In contrast to iron patio furniture, which requires regular cleaning with dish soap diluted with water and annual spray waxing, cast aluminum patio furniture can be cleaned with a garden hose and is virtually maintenance-free. Using soap and warm water will remove any stubborn residue that has formed. No other maintenance is required aside from that. Cast aluminum is virtually indistinguishable from cast iron, both in terms of appearance and feel, but it is significantly stronger and lighter than its cast-iron counterparts. Our cast aluminum staircases weigh approximately one-third the weight of their cast iron counterparts. Several advantages are available, the most obvious of which is during the installation process. It is actually possible to install your own staircase (with a little assistance positioning the larger items such as the handrail) because the staircase is so lightweight. Even if you don't want to do the installation yourself, the lighter design will make the process go much more quickly and smoothly for your professional installers. Because of its high carbon content (approximately 4%), cast iron may conjure up images of highly durable old machinery or kitchen equipment, but it is actually a fairly brittle metal in practice. Therefore, while cast iron has a high compressive strength, if not properly maintained, it can fracture at joints over time. This is especially true for external staircases, which are subjected to more extreme hot and cold temperatures. Because it is cast rather than forged, the aluminum we use for our staircases is less brittle and will last for a long time. Rust is another issue that frequently arises with cast iron metalwork and other metal components. Any signs of rust must be addressed as soon as possible to avoid the problem becoming more severe. Our cast aluminum staircases, on the other hand, have excellent corrosion resistance and require significantly less maintenance to keep them looking and performing at their best. Over time, cast iron can become vulnerable to corrosion, making it necessary to coat it with a water-resistant finish such as paint and to touch up and maintain this finish on a regular basis to prevent rusting.
