Cast Aluminum

Cast aluminum is a popular choice for outdoor patio furniture due to its exceptional combination of strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. The casting process for aluminum patio furniture involves pouring molten aluminum into molds to create intricate and detailed designs. Once the aluminum solidifies, the mold is opened, and the excess material is removed. This process allows for complex designs and ensures strength, durability, and resistance to rust and corrosion. The result is visually appealing and long-lasting patio furniture. One of the major advantages of cast aluminum is its lightweight nature, making it easy to move and rearrange as desired. Furthermore, cast aluminum is resistant to rust and corrosion if cared for properly, ensuring that your patio furniture remains in excellent condition even when exposed to the elements.


Extruded Aluminum (Cold Extrusion)

Aluminum is a popular choice for outdoor patio furniture due to its exceptional combination of strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. The cold extrusion process involves forcing the aluminum alloy through a die at room temperature, without the need for heating the material. The process begins with a solid aluminum billet, which is placed in a chamber and pressed by a hydraulic or mechanical force. The pressure applied causes the aluminum to flow through a specially designed opening in the die, taking on the shape of the desired profile. This allows for the creation of intricate and precise designs, including different curves, angles, and patterns. Cold extrusion offers several advantages for patio furniture production. First, it enables the use of lightweight aluminum, making the furniture easy to handle and move. The resulting extruded aluminum profiles are strong and durable, with excellent structural integrity. This ensures that the furniture can withstand outdoor elements and regular use over time.


Wrought Iron

Wrought iron is a strong and durable iron alloy known for its decorative appeal, making it a popular choice for outdoor patio furniture. Skilled craftsmen shape the iron through forging and welding techniques. Heating the iron allows it to become malleable, enabling the artisans to hammer and form intricate designs. The individual components are then welded together, creating a sturdy structure. After the welding process, the furniture is finished with techniques like sanding, painting, or applying protective coatings. Wrought Iron can be heavy and cumbersome to move around and is good for high wind areas. Wrought iron furniture combines timeless charm with resilience, offering lasting beauty and functionality in outdoor settings.


Ipe & Teak

Ipe and teak wood are both popular choices for outdoor patio furniture due to their durability, natural beauty, and resistance to various outdoor elements. Both ipe and teak wood offer excellent longevity and are resistant to rot, decay, insects, and weathering. It’s worth noting that both woods are dense and heavy, so furniture made from them may be relatively heavy and require proper support and care during installation. Ipe wood, also known as Brazilian Walnut, is a dense and hardwood species native to South America. Teak wood is native to Southeast Asia and has been used for centuries in shipbuilding and furniture. Maintenance:Ipe wood has a low-maintenance requirement. It naturally weathers to an attractive silver-gray patina over time if left untreated. If you prefer to maintain its original reddish-brown color, periodic application of a hardwood sealer or oil can help preserve the wood’s appearance. Teak wood’s inherent oils and dense grain structure enable it to withstand various weather conditions, including rain, sunlight, and extreme temperatures.


All Weather Resin Wicker

Resin wicker outdoor furniture has gained popularity as an attractive and durable choice for patio and garden settings. Resin wicker furniture is made from synthetic materials, typically high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resin fibers. These fibers are woven over a sturdy aluminum or steel frame to create the wicker-like appearance. The frame provides structural support while the resin fibers mimic the look of natural wicker. The synthetic resin fibers are designed to be weather-resistant, UV-stable, and resistant to cracking, fading, and peeling. This makes resin wicker furniture highly suitable for outdoor use, as it can withstand exposure to sunlight, rain, and other elements without significant wear and tear. Resin wicker furniture is relatively low-maintenance compared to natural wicker furniture. It doesn’t require painting, staining, or extensive cleaning. Regular cleaning with mild soap and water, along with occasional rinsing, is usually sufficient to keep it looking its best. Additionally, the synthetic materials are resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew, reducing the risk of damage or deterioration.


Powder Coating (Aluminum, Steel, Wrought Iron)

Powder coating is a popular and durable finishing process for patio furniture. The furniture undergoes surface preparation to remove existing paint, rust, or debris. An electrostatically charged dry powder is then sprayed onto the furniture, creating a uniform coating on the grounded metal surface. Afterward, the furniture is cured in an oven, melting and fusing the powder particles for a smooth and durable finish. The benefits of powder coating include exceptional durability, protection against chips, scratches, fading, and corrosion. It also provides resistance to stains, moisture, and UV rays. Powder coating offers customization options with a wide range of colors and finishes to match your outdoor decor. Moreover, it is an eco-friendly choice as it is free from harmful VOCs and can be recycled to reduce waste.
