What are alternatives to anodised aluminium?

Anodised aluminium was very popular in the early aluminium double glazing of the 1970’s and 1980’s.  Whilst anodised aluminium is still very much available, it is fair to say powder coating is far more widespread today.

Commercially, anodised aluminium is still used for curtain walling, shopfronts and other forms of glazing where a metallic appearance is required.  However powder coating can also provide great alternatives to anodised.  Wth powder coated colours available in satin, gloss or matt for many years, they are now also available in metallic effect shades as well as textured and even wood effect finishes.
