Aluminium is one of the most used metals in the world and offers great benefits compared to most other metals. ZX Panel is made from pure, solid aluminium extruded and produced at the Altus factory in Hamilton. So why choose aluminium?
It’s lightweight – Aluminium weighs a third of the weight of steel at 2.7g/cm3. This makes installation much easier.
It’s fire resistant – Aluminium does not burn - it melts acting as a flame retardant providing more protection time.
It’s corrosion resistant – Aluminium forms a protective oxide coating so weather conditions don’t affect it. This makes it a great material to clad with. Other metals, such as copper can corrode over time.
Its flexible – easy to handle, bend and shape.
It’s 100 percent recyclable – By choosing aluminium, you are choosing sustainability. Aluminium is completely recyclable and when recycled, maintains its quality. The re-melting process of aluminium also consumes little energy.
