“Aluminum Man” Video Goes Viral & We Like IT!

2017-01-26T23:37:32+00:00October 20th, 2011|

Dare I ask, Is the ‘Aluminum Man’ video good for the industry? While the video was created as a jovial stunt it does offer up facts about aluminum. Lyrics describe the main character, Aluminum Man, as “light as a feather” and “recyclable;” all positive descriptions of the material.

The video’s creator, Richard Heene, has made previous viral spoofs that garnered he and his family international public attention, not all of which has been entirely positive. But with estimates that aluminum stocks will rise in the 4th Quarter after what some might call a rough and unpredictable year, there’s little point in not bobbing along to the song which in its best moments praises the material for both its fanciful and practical purposes. So while the Huffington Post may not understand why Heene as contributed yet another stunt to his repertoire of joke videos and what the world could possibly learn from it- we’re bobbing along and yes…singing it praises.

Aluminum extrusions are found in structural components

2015-06-18T15:33:41+00:00March 16th, 2011|

The home is one of the most important places in our hearts. It comes as no surprise that aluminum extrusions are used for structural components. Structural components that use aluminum extrusions include decking, tent poles, and well…most things that help hold your home up, whether it is a tent or a house by the beach. From beams to circle sized architectural sections aluminum extrusions are key.

Think of anything that needs to hold something up…it just might incorporate aluminum extrusions. Those signs on the street corner, or on the highway will probably be made out of extruded aluminum. It is everywhere in our lives, even in what we consider to be normal day-to-day structures.  So take a deep breath and learn about the fascinating world of aluminum extrusions and how they are incorporated into almost everything in our lives from structures to airplanes.
