Posted on: April 9th, 2017 by byersbushblog

Did you know that powder coated aluminum is commonly used in the construction of garden furniture frames? These types of garden furniture are known for being lightweight and durable aside from being environmentally friendly. The garden furniture can also easily blend together with whatever design you have because of the many options available.

Better for Furniture Frame

Sometimes people would wonder if aluminum or powder coated steel would be better for furniture frames. If you have a garden wicker furniture, the common concern would be on the side of the quality of the frame. It is undeniable that many people would rather have an aluminum frame because they want it to be rust-free. However, are you aware that powder coated steel is actually not a bad choice?

Are you aware that steel furniture was the “in” thing before aluminum was introduced in the furniture industry during the mid-20th century? Steel was widely preferred for its toughness making it difficult to bend or be dented. This means there is less worry about the furniture giving in when 3 to 4 adults would sit at the same time. However, the main worry about the steel furniture is that it is prone to corrosion especially when you live in an environment where it can easily get in contact with water.

With rust, it is not only the frame that will be damaged, but, you may also see rusty water stains on the wicker weave of your furniture. Manufacturers started looking at the possibility of using powder coating on the steel frame to protect the furniture from rust. The coating gives the steel an added layer of protection from the outside, but not from the inside. A good selling point for steel though is that it is significantly cheaper compared to aluminum, allowing you to buy 2 to 3 sets for the same amount of aluminum furniture.

Although aluminum is widely preferred for outdoor garden furniture, you need to exert an effort in cleaning it to ensure that it lasts a long time. You have to use a mild dish detergent solution diluted in warm water. With powder coated steel, you get a stronger and cheaper garden furniture that requires minimal cleaning and caring. With a clear coat, you will be able to give the garden furniture an additional finish that will make it even more beautiful.
