The 4K Aluminum Patio Cover line up
Located in Las Vegas Nevada, is the factory of 4K aluminum where 4K aluminum patio covers are manufactured. 4K Aluminum products are the newest of patio covers to hit the Aluminum patio cover market. Now, available in two (2) different styles. First is the 4K aluminum lattice, and second is the 4K Aluminum Soleil® panel cover. What makes this aluminum patio cover product different?
For starters, the 4K aluminum line is an all-extruded material and not rolled formed. What’s the difference between the two you might ask? Extruded aluminum products are literally pushed through a die whereas roll-formed materials are shaped and bent into patio cover shapes. Or, to put it a different way… extruded makes for a much, much stronger material.
Not only is the 4K Aluminum patio cover system stronger than say Alumawood or Duralum, but even its paint is better. The preparation of the aluminum prior to paint is better. The 4K comes equipped with Heavy-duty thick gauge aluminum almost 3x’s thicker than the other manufacturers of aluminum patio covers here in Los Angeles.
Equipped with clean lines, a smooth satin finish (no wood grain) and a much thicker, stronger material, the 4K is hands-down a better more high-end aluminum patio cover product.
