When installing a privacy border or fence, does your mind jump straight to wood as the best material? Traditionalist, are you? Most people think of wood as the go-to for fencing until they look at costs and upkeep. Vinyl and wrought iron have also been used as alternatives to wood. However, aluminum fencing has shown resiliency through every rise and fall of popular trends over the past 20 years, making it the most reliable choice for many Okanagan homeowners.
Aluminum Fencing Proves Its Resiliency Time and Time Again
Why has aluminum fencing become so popular throughout the Okanagan? Maybe people love its low maintenance, durability, versatility, security, affordability, or attractiveness. Perhaps it's because aluminum fencing is lightweight but strong enough to stand up to high wind, rain, hail, pests, and the neighbour kid who uses your fence as a goal in soccer practice.
Aluminum helps create many products, from soda cans to airplanes. So, if it can keep 275 passengers safe travelling through the air, you bet it can be manufactured to make a great fence.
Even though aluminum is extremely lightweight, that doesn't determine the strength of this metal, only its density. Aluminum is 2.5 times less dense than steel and far less dense than wrought iron, which explains its weight. But when formed into fencing, its hardness (or strength) is on a par with steel and iron and can be created in thicker, more reinforced styles for security and industrial fencing solutions.
Aluminum belongs in the Boron family of the table of elements making it highly unreactive, naturally resistant to corrosion and rust. Compared to other fencing options, this acts as an added benefit as they typically require coatings and finishing to protect them. In contrast, aluminum fencing is very low maintenance, only needing a good cleaning each year.
