Aluminum railing provides a more economic option while also keeping a superior strength to weight ratio. Aluminum is unique in that it is able to be recycled so nothing is wasted or thrown away; without loosing any of the quality, durability or corrosion resistance with each new use. The energy to produce new railing systems from recycled material is only 5% of what other elements produce for brand new fabrication. That means, for every ton of aluminum re-used, 24 barrels of oil, 15 tons of fresh or salt water and nearly 10 tons of CO2 emissions are prevented from entering and harming the environment.
Aluminum is extremely flexible and workable, allowing for multiple design options for your custom needs. Not only that, but you can have just as many finishing options with aluminum that you do with stainless steel. The durability of aluminum means it can withstand numerous weather conditions and environments and is extremely resistant to corrosion and rust. A quick hose down every once in a while is all you need to do to keep your modular railing system looking like new.
The short lead times, cost effectiveness and quick prototyping are what makes Aluminum Railing Systems so appealing to architects and contractors alike.
