THREE REASONS WHY WE BUILD WITH ALUMINIUM
- Aluminium is a modern material: Strong, flexible, conductive, durable, and extremely lightweight. Its remarkable strength enables exceptionally sturdy structures– due to the low material weight, the structures weigh just one third of equivalent steel constructions.
- Aluminium products have an extremely long service life. Approximately 75 % of the construction products ever made using aluminium are still in use today. What’s more, aluminium is easy to maintain: There’s no need for any measures to protect against mold or corrosion, nor does the paintwork require any solvents.
- Aluminium is the third most abundant element on earth. From extracting the raw material to recycling, the material is suitable for achieving the highest degree of sustainability. At WICONA, 68 % of the energy required to produce aluminium is generated by hydropower.
