Cast Aluminium Furniture for Every Outdoor Area

December 20, 2018

Due to our changing weather conditions, designing and decorating a backyard or garden in Australia can be tricky.

Fortunately, Colonial Castings offers an outstanding solution: cast aluminium outdoor furniture, which is both functional and suitable for use in the great Australian outdoors.

Here are just some of the reasons we love cast aluminium furniture:

It’s Rust-proof

Unlike metal, aluminium won’t rust, which means the integrity of your aluminium furniture will remain intact over many years.

No rust also means no stains on surfaces, making it a fantastic choice for homes in coastal regions or use in open, unshaded outdoor areas.

It’s Resistant to Rotting, Peeling and Splitting

There’s no doubt – furniture that’s made of wood looks great, but ultimately, if you’re not vigilant in looking after it, it’ll get damaged within a few years, or even months.

The good news is, with cast aluminium these problems aren’t an issue; it’ll remain sturdy and useful for a long, long time.

Seat Bases Won’t Sag

Cast aluminium chairs are solidly constructed, and the material has an inherent strength to it which ensures your seat bases stay flat and stable for as long you’re using the chairs.

Excellent Strength to Weight Ratio

Even though it retains the same structural strength, a piece of furniture made out of solid aluminium weighs much less than one made of stainless steel or cast iron.

This makes cast aluminium outdoor furniture easy to move around, and handy for cleaning and storage.

Low Maintenance

No one wants outdoor furniture that requires lots of time and attention; that’s where cast aluminium shines. No dealing with oils, protective coatings or polishings – a little soap and water or a garden hose is all you need to keep your aluminium furniture looking spectacular.


Many natural or synthetic furniture materials soak up sunlight and its harmful effects like a sponge. This doesn’t happen with cast aluminium, it can easily withstand the harsh Australian sun, even during the height of summer.

Mix and Match

Besides being made from high-quality aluminium, these pieces are also available in a vast array of different colours, allowing you to create your unique outdoor vision. Pick out a set, or feel free to get creative by combining various pieces.
