Aluminium standard and bespoke street furniture
In terms of materials for street furniture, aluminium is able of impressive technicial achievements. This, while being common in our daily life uses. This metal embodies flexibility and curves. But, also, lightness and finesse. With a litteral possibility of bending over backwards, aluminium street furniture offers multiple possibilites: folding, bending, welding.
In its definition, aluminium is a metal coming from alumina, itself coming from bauxite. Natural and abundant on earth’s crust, we have widely integrated it in our daily life. And with good reason! Unlike corten steel, stainless steel or zinc, it has a low density. Therefore, its lightness is making it a valuable ally. Especilly to manufacture street equipments.
Nevertheless, its malleability is not questionning its robustness, neither its rigidity. Thus, we totally can consider an aluminium public bench, shelters or any other equipment. Thanks to the scope of our range you have various finishes possibilities. Indeed, it is traditionally in a silver colour, but other colours are available. Then, we offer you to paint it through hot-lacquered treatment. Insofar, you have access to a large range of colours. After, you’ll have, at your choice, three finishes (bright, grained or matt). In addition, we also offer you an anodized version.
Aluminium street furniture assets
Naturally present, abundantly, aluming distinguished itself by its extreme resistance to corrosion. Then it is a strategic ally for outdoor furniture manufacturing. Its aesthetic lasts in a significant way, giving a new and clean impression.
Its strong resistance to corrosion goes along with a minimal maintenance guarantee. Yet, in public spaces, time and cost of maintenance are decisive criteria.
Then, its malleability is also a strong asset! Indeed, it allows to creat curves and innovatives shapes. Which is more appreciable considering our bespoke street furniture offer. Insofar, your imagination has no more limit.
Finally, its lightness facilitate widely the installation of aluminium equipments. Therefore, if you planned on changing their spot frenquently, it can be interesting.
Aluminium street furniture drawbacks
Its lightness can, in some environments, be a disavantadge. In this case, a steel equipment, for example, must be favoured.
In a second time, cost can also brake the investment. Also notice that it is vector to heatness. In that hypothesis, using aluminium furniture in a park can be inappropriate.
Finally, its finesse, in some cases, leads to a low resistance to blows and impacts. Therefore, according to the aim of the equipment, it needs to be considered.
Single or mixed with other materials, aluminium attracts by its flexibility. Various finishes allow you to not concede anything on the global aesthetic. For more lightness, as visual as physical, choose aluminium street furniture!
To know the details of other material for street furniture, we invite you to consult the developed characteristics on steel, corten steel, stainless steel, zinc, wood and recycled plastic.
