Aluminium Rectangular Garden Table with 8 Chairs – Maintenance Free – Free Parasol Offer

Aluminium Rectangular Garden Table with 8 Chairs

The question is, why buy aluminium rectangular garden table with 8 chairs made from cast metal instead of wrought iron? Wrought iron comes with the English heritage and tradition; it is after all the material sought after by the discerning consumer.

Is there a shift in that perception these days? You can’t go wrong with metal furniture be it aluminium, stainless steel, or iron. But cast aluminium sales have skyrocketed in the UK, much higher than wrought iron. Need more proof, look at who’s selling it on high street and there’ll be no doubt.

But, the move to cast iron for me was made based on three things. The way the product looks, how perfect it is for UK gardens and there is very little maintenance required. This is why I chose it over other metals, wicker, timber or plastic/resin furniture.

Why buy an aluminium rectangular garden table with 8 chairs instead of wrought iron?

To be honest, the majority of the iron furniture you see on the market is not ‘wrought’. What I mean is that it wasn’t formed by a blacksmith using fire and shaping it with a hammer. It is actually made in furniture moulds, similar to the way they make cast aluminium furniture.

The real wrought iron is still available, but you will pay a premium for it. The mass-produced furniture is pretty good, however, for iron to stand up to the UK weather, it needs to be powder-coated and then coated with a protective resin. Even with that treatment, a small scratch or stone chip is all that it will take for rust to work its way in.

Mass produced cast aluminium and wrought iron furniture sets are similar in price, but the cast aluminium has built-in rust-resistance. Furthermore, cast aluminium can reproduce the intricate details of traditional wrought iron pieces by using modern manufacturing techniques.

Hand tooled casts or moulds hold the molten liquid aluminium until it cools and it eventually sets into the chosen pattern. The intricate details that can be produced in cast aluminium set it apart and we can produce anything from stylish latticework to amazing floral motifs. The pieces we produce are solid and sturdy and won’t be affected by the wind, but it is still lighter than iron and easier to move around if needed.
