Metal furniture is available in cast aluminium, traditional cast iron or a mixture of both. Cast aluminium doesn’t rust and doesn’t retain heat so it’s comfortable to sit on. It’s lighter than cast iron and easier to move around. Iron and aluminium furniture is heavier, stronger and more durable but still light enough to move.
