Aluminum is a durable metal often used to build stunning outdoor furniture pieces. It’s usually silver, but it can be coated to suit your desired aesthetic. Its diversity of shapes, sizes, and styles makes it an excellent choice for crafting your dream outdoor space.

There are countless benefits to using aluminum for your outdoor space. The right aluminum patio furniture can set the mood while lasting forever, from a dining table where you spend an evening enjoying the perfect barbeque meal to a cozy sectional wrapped around a beautiful fire table. 


Aluminum patio furniture is well known for being rust-resistant. Aluminum is naturally coated in aluminum oxide, which renews itself and protects the aluminum surface from rusting.

This resistance makes it ideal for outdoor furniture because it can withstand the elements, which is especially useful here in southern Alberta. Durable outdoor patio furniture is a must in a place where the weather can change almost instantly from clear skies to rain or snow.

Aluminum powder coating is often baked onto the material surface rather than painted. Powder coating for aluminum patio furniture can last for years as long as it’s properly maintained. It can also be refurbished if it becomes scratched or damaged.An infographic showing the benefits of aluminium patio furniture including it's durability and style range


Aluminum patio furniture is famously easy to maintain. Its painted finish and rust resistance not only ensures it looks great for longer but also makes it easy to clean. Spills or stains from your nights enjoying your outdoor furniture are easily taken care of. Typically, all aluminum furniture needs is a wipe down with a damp cloth. 

To clean your furniture:

  • Use 1/4 cup of liquid soap in a gallon of lukewarm water as a cleaning solution
  • Use only sponges, soft bristle brushes, or cloths to reduce damage risk
  • Wax the frame with high-grade car wax to protect it and make it shine

Following these simple steps to cleaning and protecting your aluminum furniture is essential, and cleaning or polishing it regularly is an effective way to ensure it lasts a long time, and you get the most out of your investment. 


Aluminium is known for being lightweight. Its lightness makes aluminum easy to move around to suit your mood. This quality also makes it very convenient when moving homes!

Another fantastic aspect of aluminum is its flexibility. It’s a highly malleable metal and can come in a wide range of styles, colours, and sizes to suit your unique needs

From traditional styles to new sweeping shapes, aluminum furniture can help you create the outdoor setting of your dreams. In many cases, aluminum seating arrangements come with cushions you can customize in upholstery that works for your style. Bold patterns and colours can complement your existing aluminum outdoor furniture and make a statement.


Aluminum is also known as an eco-friendly material, making it ideal for those who are environmentally conscious. 

Aluminum is naturally occurring, meaning it doesn’t need to be alloyed with other materials to make it into a usable metal. It’s also one of the most recyclable metals on the planet. Pop and beer cans, for example, are made of aluminum and can be recycled over and over again.

There’s a good chance the aluminum used in your outdoor furniture is recycled. 75% of aluminum ever produced is still in use today. The aluminum production industry is always striving to become more and more sustainable for the future by cutting down its carbon footprint.Sets of aluminum tables and chairs covered by snow.
