Why Aluminium?

Aluminium is a young material and is the metal of choice for leading designers, architects and engineers, all of whom are looking for a material which combines functionality and cost-effectiveness with forward looking form and design potential.

Aluminium is an extraordinarily versatile material , the range of forms it can take and variety of surface finishes available means it lends itself to a wide range of products. The metal’s light weight and numerous material qualities mean that products have been designed for use in all areas of modern life.  It is a good conductor of electricity and most overhead and many underground transmission lines are made of aluminium.  It transmits conducted heat and reflects radiant heat, making it an excellent medium from which to produce cooking utensils and foils, radiators and building insulation.  Its strength, combined with low density, make it ideal for transport and packaging applications. Aluminium is a unique metal: strong, durable, flexible, impermeable, lightweight, corrosion-resistant and a hundred percent recyclable, its unique combination of properties makes it suitable for myriad applications.

That’s why Aluminium.
