Q: What are the benefits of aluminum cabinets?
Aluminum cabinets are lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion and rust. They also offer a modern and sleek appearance, are customizable, and can contribute to sustainable building practices.
Q: What customization options are available for aluminum cabinets?
Our aluminum cabinets can be customized with various finishes, colors, sizes, and hardware options. We also offer a range of accessories such as pull-out drawers, shelves, and lighting solutions.
Q: What is marine-grade aluminum?
Marine grade aluminum refers to aluminum alloys that are specifically designed to withstand the harsh conditions of marine environments. The most common marine grade aluminum alloys include 5052, 5083, and 5086. These alloys have a high magnesium content, which provides excellent corrosion resistance. They also have high strength-to-weight ratios, making them ideal for use in lightweight structures. We always use 5052.

Overall, the 5052 aluminum alloy offers a combination of strength, durability, corrosion resistance, weldability, formability, and cost-effectiveness that makes it a popular and highly regarded choice.

Yes, aluminum cabinets are ideal for outdoor applications as they are resistant to corrosion and rust. Our cabinets are powder-coated with outdoor-grade finishes to ensure maximum durability and longevity.
