Our General Product Information
Our cast aluminum components are all created on-site aluminum foundry, located within their manufacturing facility. Other manufacturers must rely on outside vendors for their cast furniture, but Ours has chosen to keep this process in-house in order to ensure that the aluminum used in the casting process is actually pure aluminum and to closely monitor the quality of the castings.
Ours also include an additional step in their casting process known as ‘out gassing’ – this step involves removing gas bubbles during the melting process which, when not removed, create weak aluminium. This weakness is caused by trapped bubbles curing in the poured aluminum moulds. Due to the porous casting, the presence of these bubbles results in broken or damaged aluminum parts. It’s important to note here that many casting companies eliminate this step.
Ours non-rusting aluminum is used in the manufacture of the furniture. Regardless of whether the frames are solid cast or extruded (meaning hollow aluminum tubes formed and welded), we guarantee that all the raw materials we use are of the highest quality and grade and that they exceed industry standards for commercial use. We use Heliarc welding processes, ensuring the strongest possible welds for aluminum joints.
Alternative Table Tops
Ours offers an amazing variety of tabletop options; such as Cast Aluminum, Synthetic Stone, Acrylic, Fibreglass, and Copper; having these options is an important element of ours tabletop product line. It means there are limitless design opportunities for this furniture to be easily and effectively co-ordinated with its environment.

The range of vinyl strap furniture continues to grow, with us adding both contemporary and traditional styles to its easy-care, vinyl strap furniture range. The popular vinyl strap is 2” wide, created from ‘virgin’ vinyl – this means it contains no foreign bonding agents. These vinyl straps contain UV and mildew inhibitors in order to maintain the vinyl’s clean and fresh appearance, and the lack of foreign bonding agents means that the vinyl strap won’t deteriorate over time.
We is proud to offer two basic categories of frame finishes –
• Standard: A Standard finish is a one-step application process.
• Premium: A Premium finish is a multistep process. This process involves skilled artists applying paint by hand; however, prior to applying this finish, all frames are subjected to an extensive 45-minute preparatory process whereby the frames are cleaned in readiness for the final finish.
