Aluminum has the advantage of being much lighter than other metals, yet still offers strength and durability.  Anodizing processes can offer different color options and will harden the surface of aluminum, making it more resistant to erosion over time.  Unlike steel which can readily rust and develop unsightly stains, aluminum is much more resistant to this type of wear, and coatings and paint are often used to further enhance its durability and beauty.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is an ideal choice for a wide variety of applications.  It has great aesthetic beauty with mill, brushed or mirrored finishes, and it’s a durable solution against harsh liquids or weather elements.  Stainless is great for interior or exterior architectural interior finishing such as cladding, railings, countertops, shelving and more.  For exterior or industrial uses with extreme exposure, it can be coated or put through a passivation process to slow rust when exposed to chlorides such as those found in masonry washes, plant sprays, road salt, ice melting chemicals and other contaminants.
