Throughout Singapore, more and more homeowners and business owners are choosing aluminium furniture from A Star Furnishing over the usual laminated wood options. Here is why.
Durability and Longevity
A Star Furnishing uses premium high-grade aluminium, which offers several real advantages over laminated wood. Most importantly, items made with aluminium tend to last much longer than their laminate counterparts.
The relatively long lifespan of A Star aluminium furniture is due to a few factors. Unlike laminated wood, which is prone to warping from expansion and contraction when temperatures fluctuate, A Star aluminium items remain stable and maintain their structural integrity. This delivers a consistently hassle-free user experience, devoid of the all-too familiar and frustrating problems of jammed drawers, misaligned doors, and unsightly lifting laminates.
Unlike laminated wood and solid wood, aluminium is moisture-resistant. When exposed to rain, condensation, or leaking pipes, it will not rot, become mouldy or infested with termites. This is especially desirable for cabinets that accommodate drainage pipes for taps and dishwashers.

Another factor that contributes to the durability of A Star aluminium furniture is its fire-resistance. A Star aluminium can withstand high temperatures without catching alight or deforming. Even in the unlikely event that it catches on fire, the fire-resistant powder-coating remains intact after several seconds of burning. This delivers a window of opportunity for fires to be contained and extinguished, potentially saving properties from extensive damage and even lives.
Aesthetic Appeal and Creative Possibilities

Sustainability and Certification
Thankfully, the world is waking up to the urgent need for society to embrace sustainability. Responsible homeowners are now questioning the environmental impact of wood, which may or may not have been produced using sustainable forestry methods. Even mined stone can disfigure the landscape and displace biodiversity. Compared to the alternatives, aluminium is an easy choice.
A Star Furnishing is certified ‘green’
A Star Furnishing is proud to have been certified ‘green’ by the Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC).
Fun fact: Aluminium is one of the greenest metals on the planet, since it can be recycled repeatedly. Recycling this material saves 95 percent of the energy required to produce primary aluminium, or aluminium from raw materials. That is good for the planet and the pocket!
For all these reasons and more, aluminium is clearly a better choice than laminated wood, for many if not all applications.
