‘Spoilt for choice’ would seem to be the case for the diversity of materials available to the Café and Restaurant designer.

It is widely recognised that material selection is one of the defining moments in the ultimate success of any commercial eatery venture.

Anodised aluminium is one of those materials that have consistently proved its worth over many years to the specifier market, both in terms of visual appearance and service longevity.

One of the great things about the anodising process is that it’s a fusion of science and nature. Yes anodised aluminium is a finish but also a product!

During anodising the natural oxide film on aluminium’s surface is thickened by an electrolytic reaction resulting in a hardened light fast finish with excellent adhesion properties. It will not chip or peel.

Anodised aluminium, unlike organic coatings, has a wonderful deep metallic sheen that maintains its translucent appearance indefinitely. It is easy to clean, durable, hygienic, corrosion resistant, lightweight and low maintenance.  What more could you expect of a material in a catering environment!

A wide selection of finished effects can be created with anodised aluminium. A wonderful benefit of the anodising process is that it enhances rather than covers fine patterns and textures in the base metal surface.
