Aluminium vs Steel
While conventional building construction still relies on steel as its primary substructure material, every Sprung structure is built to last with a far superior aluminium material. Aluminium substructures offer greater versatility and performance, and arrive on site prefabricated and ready to assemble quickly and easily. Because of their strong and versatile aluminium substructures, Sprung buildings can withstand extreme weather and environmental conditions.
Advantages of Sprung’s aluminium substructure
- Rust proof
Unlike steel or wood, aluminium performs extremely well in humid conditions.
Aluminium is about 1/3 of the weight of steel.
Aluminium meets or exceeds building codes for strength.
Aluminium can be extruded into virtually any shape. Connections are butted, not welded.
The ratio of strength-to-weight equals more value for less weight.
With a long life expectancy, aluminium gets stronger with age.
- Environmentally Friendly
Aluminium is 100% recyclable, with no generational loss of quality.
