Oxley’s Cast Aluminium – Timelessly Elegant Outdoor Furniture

Oxley’s have been producing fine quality cast and fabricated aluminium furniture in the Cotswolds since 1991. The components come from foundries where only the highest grade alloys are created by carefully refining & mixing different grades of recycled aluminium.

The furniture is made in a combination of castings and profiles. For the castings the molten metal is poured into sand moulds which have been shaped to the form of the original hand carved design. The metal cools in its own time and the sand mould is then broken (each mould can only be used once) to extract the new casting. Each casting is then worked by hand until it is ready to be welded to another casting or profile. The profiles can be formed to create different frame shapes. Each item of furniture is thus built up slowly using many individual pieces until finally it is complete. It then goes through the blast process where it is pelted at enormous velocity with manganese shot to remove any rough edges and create a physical key for the paint process. Primed and then the final colour. These last two stages are done if a high temperature oven.

Aluminium is the perfect material for all-weather furniture. When aluminium is properly treated it does not rust, it is far lighter than iron so chairs and tables can be easily moved but most importantly it requires no maintenance to keep it looking good. The quality of aluminium furniture you buy depends entirely on the amount of material that is used in manufacture and the time and care taken to prepare it before painting. Done the Oxley’s way, it will last generations.
