Every construction must be approved by the designated authority in a particular jurisdiction. Woodgrain aluminum extrusion profile is deemed non-combustible, therefore, it’s a preferred option because of its fire regulation compliance.
Aluminum is light yet strong. This combination of wood finish on aluminum extrusion is an added advantage over wood. Besides, it has the power to resist movement without breaking or bending easily.
Timber requires maintenance more often than wood finish aluminum extrusion. The latter requires less maintenance costs but delivers the exquisite wood appearance other architects and designers look out for in timber.
Compared to timber, wood finish aluminum is slower in losing its coatings. This means avoiding coating/painting costs repeatedly over time. According to research, Aluminum resistance power to fade is three times that of wood. This means less exposure to agents of corrosion and adhesion.
Wood finish aluminum extrusions can be used both internally and externally. Although timber has a fine look, its ability to resist fade and corrosion makes aluminum wood finish the better option. This has an impact on both finances and overall look/feel.
