Benefits Of Aluminum Gates
There are many different materials that are used to produce gates these days, each with their own set of pros and cons, but aluminum gates are increasingly used in Montreal in both residential and commercial settings due to the following benefits:
VERY STRONG – This is an essential attribute for a gate if it is going to be able to keep unwanted intruders out of your property and our gates have it in abundance. Our custom gates are produced using high strength aluminum that is capable of resisting high-speed winds and forced entry attempts.
LIGHTWEIGHT – Relative to the level of strength it offers aluminum is lightweight. While much of the focus with gates is on keeping individuals out of your property, you still have to be able to operate the gate with ease to be able to gain access to yourself. The fact that aluminum gates are lightweight, they are easier to open and close, especially for the elderly and young children.
MAINTENANCE FREE – Steel and aluminum are the two most commonly used materials in the manufacturing of gates and one aspect that sways the decision in favor of aluminum is that aluminum does not corrode and will therefore never show signs of rust. Steel on the other hand always rusts which can eventually make a gate look unsightly.
AFFORDABLE PRICING – The gates we produce are very favorably priced when compared against similar gates manufactured from steel. Not only do they cost less to produce, but the fact that aluminum is lighter, also makes them easier to install, further reducing your end cost.
EXTENDED LIFE SPAN – We understand that you don’t want to be buying a new gate every few years, which is why we produce our gates to last. With minimal maintenance, you can expect your gate to function perfectly and look good for several decades. And as aluminum is powder-coated during the manufacturing process, it is very easy to paint should you wish to change its color, unlike some other metals.
