Metalwork materials are a given in the category of strength. Steel especially, is often known for its strength as a material and was once described to be capable of withstanding the impact of a vehicle crash.
When aluminum and steel are put side by side, it is difficult to differentiate the two. Aluminum is known to be the cheaper alternative of steel, replicating the classic look and feel of steelwork. While it cannot replicate the strength of steel as a material, it is still considerably durable. Aside from being cheaper compared to steel, it also requires lesser maintenance. Steel, although galvanized, is not rust resistant and may need repainting after some time. Aluminum on the other hand is rust resistant. Some people prefer aluminum due to its lightweight quality as well (it is four times lighter in weight than steel) and because it is recyclable.
Whether the material of choice is steel or aluminum, its installation comes in three varieties:
- Steel picket – crafted to look like the traditional wrought iron fence
- Colorbond – a panel with sleek lines; without vertical gaps and foot holes
- Tubular – consists of a metal rod design
For pricing, steel will obviously cost more than aluminum. This is outside of the project specifics. Pricing will still vary upon detailed discussion with our team.
