Why we use high grade aluminium
Aluminium, as a material, is extremely lightweight. This makes it ideal for incorporating in custom ute trays as it adds minimal weight to your canopy.
Aluminium offers plenty of malleability which means it’s easy to fabricate custom trays and tailored products. Unlike other metals, which can be limited in customisation potential, using aluminium means there’s just about no application we can’t custom fabricate a tray for.
Aluminium is impressively resistant to corrosion. Thanks to the protective layer of aluminium oxide coating, even aluminium exposed to moisture, water and other elements will continue to function the way you need it to without damage.
Aluminium is 100% recyclable as well as being significantly less harmful for the environment during production and fabrication than other metals.
