Unveiling the Strength: What Kind of Aluminum is Used for Pool Screen Enclosures at Lafferty Aluminum & Screening

At Lafferty Aluminum & Screening, the foundation of a durable and long-lasting pool screen enclosure lies in the choice of materials. One common question is, "What kind of aluminum is used for pool screen enclosures?" In this blog post, we will uncover the strength behind our material choices and why they make a significant difference in the quality of your pool enclosure.

Choosing the Right Aluminum for Pool Screen Enclosures:

1. 6063-T6 Extruded Aluminum:

  At Lafferty Aluminum & Screening, we exclusively use 6063-T6 extruded aluminum for our pool screen enclosures. This alloy is known for its strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. The "T6" designation signifies that the aluminum has undergone a heat treatment, further enhancing its structural integrity.

2. Corrosion Resistance:

  Pool environments are notorious for exposing materials to corrosive elements like chlorine and constant humidity. The 6063-T6 aluminum alloy excels in resisting corrosion, ensuring that your pool enclosure remains sturdy and aesthetically pleasing for years.

3. Lightweight yet Sturdy:

  While being lightweight, 6063-T6 aluminum doesn't compromise on strength. This makes it an ideal choice for pool screen enclosures, providing structural integrity without adding unnecessary weight to the structure.

4. Low Maintenance:

  The inherent properties of 6063-T6 aluminum contribute to low maintenance requirements. Pool screen enclosures crafted from this alloy are easy to clean, resistant to rust, and maintain their appearance despite constant exposure to pool chemicals and the elements.
