Our Aluminum Substructure Far Outperforms Steel
While conventional building construction still relies on steel as its primary substructure material, every Sprung structure is built to last with a far superior aluminum material. Aluminum substructures offer greater versatility and performance, and arrive on site prefabricated and ready to assemble quickly and easily. Because of their strong and versatile aluminum substructures, Sprung buildings can withstand extreme weather and environmental conditions. Sprung building substructures have an indefinite life span and a 30-year pro-rata guarantee, while our performance architectural membranes have pro-rata guarantees up to 20 years.
Advantages of Sprung’s Aluminum Substructure
- Rust proof
Unlike steel or wood, aluminum performs extremely well in humid conditions.
Aluminum is about 1/3 of the weight of steel.
Aluminum meets or exceeds building codes for strength.
Aluminum can be extruded into virtually any shape. Connections are butted, not welded.
The ratio of strength-to-weight equals more value for less weight.
With an almost indefinite life expectancy, aluminum actually gets stronger with age.
- Environmentally Friendly
Aluminum is 100% recyclable, with no generational loss of quality.
