Aluminum made furniture has been a design staple in many outdoor spaces for years. Only in recent years manufacturers’, like Source Outdoor, been able to take this durable lightweight material and turn it into beautiful modern works of art. Let’s take a look at what makes using aluminum so appealing.


Design Style Without Limits

In terms of design & style, aluminum furniture has comes along way. Design versatility and  customization have made using aluminum a favorite among designers. The clean, bright appearance of powder coated aluminum gives anyone who wants to create a unique space, complete design freedom.

Durable Strength  

When choosing outdoor furniture, consider industrial marine grade powder coated aluminum. Not only is it durable, it’s also extremely corrosive resistant.  Next, ensure the metal is coated with Polyester Triglycidyl Isocyanurate (TGIC) powder coating.  This special application of ionized, dry paint is sprayed and baked onto the furniture adding an additional level of environmental resistance. Finally, this unique sealing method is also extremely resistant to peeling, cracking, fading and chipping

Easy to Clean, Easy to Maintain. 

The semi-gloss powder coat finish resists mild chemicals and cleaning agents, such as Windex or glass cleaners, therefore aluminum furniture should just be cleaned with a damp cloth or mild soap and water. Scotch-Brite, steel wool or any abrasive products should not be used.
