Today, companies are working harder than ever to be more environmentally conscious. Building with aluminium, in the form of flat rolled products or extrusions, allows companies to put metal where they want it, simplifying connections and saving other valuable resources.
Aluminium can also be anodized and painted in myriad colours, lasting decades in adverse weather conditions.
The recycled content of aluminum flat-rolled products in the US building market is estimated at 85%—60% of which is from post-consumer sources.
The industry wants every pound of aluminium back from demolished buildings so that it can be recycled and reintroduced in the metal stream.
Aluminum building products are made from alloys that are weather-proof, corrosion resistant and immune to the harmful effects of UV rays.
Lightweight aluminium allows architects freedom to construct buildings with greater stability—meeting required performance specifications, while minimising expenditure on foundations. These are just some of the benefits of building with aluminum.
