Why Aluminium

What makes it so special?

A hundred years ago aluminium was known as a rather exotic material. Over the decades it will probably be one of the most widely used metals in construction. The reason is the combination of the outstanding characteristics of aluminium, which now days become more and more important:

  • Lightweight
  • Low life cycle cost
  • Environmental-friendly
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Easy to recycle over and over again
