Advantages of Aluminum

  • 1/3 lighter weight than steel
    Rusted iron

    Salt and road corrosion catastrophically destroying steel trailer frame

    • reduces energy consumption
  • Non-corrosive: it does not rust
  • Not sensitive to weather exposure and is UV-resistant
  • 100% recyclable with infinite reuses
  • Strong: custom extrusion profiles can be made to suit any applicationMany aluminum alloys have strengths similar to steel
    • Aluminum becomes stronger in cold temperatures
    • Very high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Aluminum behaves elastically under static and dynamic loading conditions
    • This means aluminum can resume shape and size under many stresses
  • Naturally attractive surface with little to no finishing required
