The Characteristics of Aluminium

Our product range here at ABC Industrial is incredibly diverse and we think that it is one of our most attractive attributes. After all, we believe that it is important that every potential client can find the product they are looking for! In fact, our aluminium doors are one of our biggest sellers and, in this blog, we are going to go over some the key characteristics of the metal itself in order to give a deeper insight into its appeal…

Corrosion Resistant

One of the most impressive attributes of the metal aluminium has got to be its resistance to corrosion. After all, most other metals are susceptible to rust, which occurs as a result of oxidation, and it can leave your doors looking beat up pretty quickly. Luckily, aluminium is able to withstand the test of time and will look just as brand new 10 years down the line!


Not only is aluminium a malleable metal, which means that it can be moulded into a range of different shapes very easily, it is also a durable metal. In fact, the metal comes with a minimum lifespan of 50 years which means that it is an incredibly cost-effective purchase for any industrial and commercial property owner.


Since society has started to recognise the impact of pollution, it is important to take natural resources into consideration too. After all, bauxite, the sedimentary rock that aluminium is derived from, will eventually run out. Luckily, aluminium is a recyclable material which means that your doors can be repurposed in the future, preserving our resources! The team here at ABC Industrial believe that an aluminium door is an essential addition for any industrial property. After all, they come in a wide variety of colours and have incredible potential when it comes to improving both the security and aesthetic appeal of a doorway.
