Aluminium is fast becoming the material of choice. Its properties mean that intricate, stable lightweight structures can be designed without concern, as even thin structures do not warp.

Aluminium is a material that has given architects and designers the physical means to achieve creative innovations in design and are such as:

1.  Design, function and economy
2.  Windows, skylights, screens and doors
3.  Facades, cladding/siding, weatherproofing
4.  Roofs and canopies
5.  Structures
6.  Door handles, window catches, shower units and staircases
7.  Support frames for solar panels, solar collectors and light shelves

Today when a material is chosen for any application, the product’s whole life cycle is considered. This goes far beyond the production process as it also covers the impacts and benefits of the material throughout the lifespan of the different products, including its recycling and re-use.
