About Aluminum Patio Furniture
Aluminum patio furniture comes in two types: cast and extruded. Cast aluminum furniture is solid and formed by a mold. It’s stable and strong and won’t blow away in a storm. Cast aluminum furniture tends to have more support because it’s heavier. Extruded aluminum is hollow and lightweight. It’s easy to store because it’s stackable, and it comes in many styles. It’s also much easier to move. There is a third option of a cast/extruded aluminum blend where parts of the furniture are made of cast aluminum and other parts are extruded aluminum.
