Aluminum Boardwalks vs Steel and Wood Boardwalks
One of the great benefits of choosing an aluminum boardwalk over a steel or galvanized boardwalk is the ease and minimal cost of the installation. Since aluminum has a favorable strength to weight ratio, our boardwalks often require smaller equipment and smaller crews during installation. Additionally, aluminum's light weight also reduces cost during transportation. Our aluminum boardwalks along with our patent header kits allows the boardwalk to span up to 40' on (2) wooden piles, thus reducing the cost of additional piles and labor.
Aluminum vs Timber Boardwalks
Aluminum is longer lasting.
Aluminum is resistance to salt and chemicals.
Better design properties than wood.
Aluminum will not have to be treated with preservatives.
Aluminum is a "Maintenance Free" product.
