Aluminium is a light metal that resists oxidisation. Holzhof uses cold-extruded profiles in aluminium alloy EN AW-6060 (in compliance with the relevant European standards) which are then painted with non-toxic epoxy powders.
Among the numerous advantages that this type of metal offers, its lightness is particularly worthy of note, as in volume terms aluminium weighs only one third as much as steel. Aluminium produces considerable weight savings in nearly every type of mechanical application. Besides this, the metal is highly appreciated for the ease with which it can be recycled, allowing greater protection of environmental resources, a subject that Holzhof holds particularly close to its heart. Nearly one third of the aluminium consumed in the world today is produced from recycled scrap.
