Aluminum vs. Steel

Strong, Durable & Light Aluminum Railing

is an excellent choice for railings in the harshest conditions.

Aluminum is a light weight highly durable metal. Aluminum is approximately half the weight of steel and shares the same mechanical properties as steel. With an excellent weight to strength ratio it has excellent corrosion resistant properties that are much higher than steel. When powder coated Aluminum is virtually impervious to degradation caused from environmental conditions.

A key advantage to Aluminum is in its highly formable nature. It is easily shaped through extrusion into complex profiles and designs. This is ideal for top rails, bottom rails, posts and pickets.
