Aluminum The Material of choice
Aluminum: Aluminium is a soft and lightweight metal with a dull silver-gray appearance. Aluminium is about
one-third as dense as steel or copper is malleable ductile, and easily machined and cast; and has excellent
corrosion resistance and durability due to the protective oxide layer. It is also nonmagnetic and non sparking and
is the second most malleable metal (most being gold) and the sixth most ductile. Whether measured in terms of
quantity or value, the use of aluminium exceeds that of any other metal except iron and it is important in virtually
all segments of the world economy. Aluminium alloys form vital components of aircrafts and rockets as a result of
their high strength to weight ratio. Aluminium was selected as the material to be used for the apex of the
Washington Monument, at a time when one ounce cost twice the daily wages of a labourer.
Aluminium was, when it was first discovered, extremely difficult to separate from the rocks it was part of. Since the
whole of Earth's aluminium was bound up in the form of compounds, it was the most difficult metal on earth to get,
despite the fact that it is one of the planet's most common. The reason is that aluminium is oxidized very rapidly
and that its oxide is an extremely stable compound that, unlike rust on steel, does not flake off. The very reason
for which aluminium is used in many applications is why it is so hard to produce.
Recovery of this metal from scrap (via recycling) has become an important component of the aluminium industry.
Recycling involves simply melting the metal, which is far less expensive than creating it from ore. Refining
aluminium requires enormous amounts of electricity; recycling it requires only 5% of the energy to produce it. A
common practice since the early 1900's, aluminium recycling is not new. It was, however, a low-profile activity until
the late 1960's when the exploding popularity of aluminium beverage can finally placed recycling into the public
Electric power represents about 20 to 40% of the cost of producing aluminium, depending on the location of the
aluminium smelter. Smelters tend to be located where electric power is plentiful and inexpensive, China is
currently (2004) the top world producer of aluminium.
After peaking in popularity in the lavish homes of the 1920s then nearly disappearing from new construction
during the whimsical vinyl-sided cottage era, Wrought Aluminum is making a phenomenal come back over wrought
iron, now that Aluminum is cheaper to produce and the new techniques available to make it look like wrought iron
with the benefit of maintenance free .
Designers and builders attribute the resurging demand to current trends in architecture featuring Mediterranean,
Southwestern, and French country style homes. Also credited are improved production methods that render the
metal applications more durable
The topic of gating is increasing. The blur between the public space and the private realm of the homeowners'
association and its management is surfacing. However, land developers are very aware that gating is assumed to
favor increased property values, and the town officials are aware of the associated increases in the town's
property tax base.
There are more than seven million households (about 6 percent of the national total) behind fences or walls,
according to the Census Bureau's 2001 American Housing Survey. The Census Bureau estimated the percentage
of people living in gated communities had shot up by 11 percent in the West. The homes behind the walls, the
survey revealed, were "upscale," and "mostly white developments."
Built in the early 1930s, the first gated communities in Los Angeles were upper-scale developments in Rolling Hills
and Bradbury. Now, gated communities represent almost 50 percent of the market in the desert resort areas near
"As real-estate commodities, they are tailored to fit to specific prospective buyers. Gated communities are located
within every kind of middle class and upper-class neighborhoods, and are now available for every market
segment continuing to increase.
