The terms rust and corrosion are often used interchangeably, but there is a difference. Rust is a form of corrosion, but rust only affects iron and associated alloys that includes steel. Metal fencing is subject to the chemical process of oxidation. Modern metal fencing typically contains a powder coating for aesthetic and practical reasons to inhibit corrosion, but for corrosion resistance in metal fencing, nothing can come close to aluminum.
South Florida Elements
Many metals rust when exposed to the conditions prevalent in the South Florida climate. They corrode when exposed to high humidity levels and water – particularly saltwater. Aluminum fencing is corrosion resistant and provides any property with elegance, security and durability. The material is highly versatile and can be customized into multiple styles and designs.
Research into the metal indicates that aluminum has the ability to last for a whopping 10,000 years before it begins to break down. It tolerates saltwater, significant rainfall, elevated humidity levels, and UV rays without fading or deteriorating.
Another attribute of aluminum fencing that’s particularly appealing is its resistance to insect pests. A wide variety of insects can infiltrate other types of fencing materials, resulting in damage that facilitates and accelerates rot. Aluminum fencing doesn’t attract or retain insects.
Aluminum fencing is one of the lowest-maintenance materials that can be selected and its equally at home in a variety of environments. Owners won’t have to spend time painting or staining it and it has no special maintenance requirements. If a section of aluminum fencing is damaged due to unforeseen circumstances, it’s a simple matter to replace it in the same color and style as the original.
For those seeking an environmentally-friendly fencing option, aluminum fits the bill perfectly. It’s 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled multiple times. Utilizing aluminum fencing provides a corrosion-resistant way to enjoy beauty, security and durability, while providing an eco-friendly option that saves trees.
