Aluminum Benefits

Fence, gates and railing are available in a variety of materials such as steel, PVC and wood. The recent trends show an increased use of aluminum on residential and commercial products due to proven advantages.

 

Strength: Ideal uses 6063 T5 alloy to provide the ultimate strength available. Ideal fence sections are engineered to withstand 150 MPH winds and support weight up to 1,000 lbs. per section.

 

Weight: Aluminum is 1/3 the weight of steel allowing for cost savings in labor and simplifying the install process. Although aluminum is lighter and easier to work with aluminum still retains the same yield strength of steel.

 

Performance: Aluminum products provide the same beauty, elegance and custom options as steel. Steel however is guaranteed to rust and tends to be high maintenance. IdealCoat powder-coating process provides a rust proof virtually maintenance-free product that is perfectly suited for any environment.

 

 

Green Aluminum

  • Ideal Aluminum Products uses extrusions made from 75% recycled (secondary) 6XXX series of aluminum alloys. This material is received and recycled from local suppliers. The remaining 25% of our production is from primary billet, which typically contains 3-5% recycled aluminum. All of our suppliers aluminum products are 100% recyclable with no downgrading of the material qualities. Over 30% of the aluminum produced worldwide now comes from secondary sources (recycled material). The re-melting of aluminum requires little energy as well; only about 5 percent of the energy required to produce the primary metal initially is needed in the recycling process.
