Facts about Aluminum
Longboard® is made from top quality light-weight extruded aluminum (over 30% lighter than steel). Aluminum is one of the most recycled — and most recyclable — materials on the market today.
Nearly 75% of all aluminum produced in the U.S. is still in use as it can be recycled directly back into itself over and over again in a true closed loop. Over 55% of the world’s aluminum is produced using renewable, CO2-free hydroelectric power. All Longboard® products are created with aluminum sourced from one of the major companies with access to large hydro-power capacity, U.S. based Alcoa (AA.N).
Weather-ability and Durability
Aluminum doesn’t corrode, and our 5-stage pre-treatment process protects Longboard® from oxidation, meaning it will last for years to come.
Easily installed using the supplied Longboard® Quick Screen Clips, our Tongue & Groove system can be placed either parallel or perpendicular on the home and can also be installed onto furring strips or other framing systems where required. The Longboard® T&G system requires additional component pieces at terminations and penetrations to allow for expansion and contraction.
Manufactured in 24-foot lengths and cut on-site, planks are easily sized for a number of applications, whether long or short in length, and suit a variety of designs.
