Keep reading to learn more about lightweight planters, including what materials are best, the benefits of lightweight planters, and how to choose the right planter manufacturer.
What Materials Are Used in Lightweight Planters?
Lightweight planters can be made from a variety of materials, including:
Aluminum. Aluminum planters can be made into any geometric shape with 90-degree corners (or cylinders with flat bottoms). They can be powder-coated and cured in a range of colors, which you can find in our RAL color book. At PureModern, we use a 5052 marine-grade aluminum because it is specially alloyed for strength and resistance to corrosion, even when in contact with seawater. For planters that need to withstand the elements, wet environments, or underwater areas, marine-grade aluminum is the right choice.
Fiberglass. Fiberglass planters are lightweight, durable, and versatile. Although metal is easy to customize, fiberglass can be more cost-efficient for interior use when weather is not a significant factor. While lightweight, fiberglass is still long-lasting and difficult to break, and highly resistant to cracking or warping. Fiberglass planters are great at retaining moisture and resistant to mold, frost, and color fading from UV rays. These planters come in a variety of personalized colors and designs. You can choose matte, glossy, faux stone, or wood finishes.
Every planter material has its pros and cons, and not all planters are suitable for every application.
To pick the right planters for your unique project, seek to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each option. From there, you’ll begin to see which material is best for your particular situation.
The Benefits of Lightweight Planters & Pots
For a strong and durable planter, you don’t have to choose such a thick and heavy-gauge product. In fact, when you choose lightweight planters, you open the door to infinite possibilities.
The benefits of lightweight planters and pots enable you to:
Optimize your budget. Look for a planter manufacturer that value-engineers their products. This ensures the planter is designed to deliver the strength you need but with less material, so you can buy a quality product at a price that is easier on the budget.
Go larger. Because lightweight planters can be more affordable, you have more options. Large planters can be stunning additions that contribute dimension and drama. Plus, larger planters can handle ornamental trees that create show-stopping vertical interest.
Enjoy shorter lead time. Lightweight planters — like those you’ll find in our LITE line — often take less time to fabricate and deliver.
