We manufacture these by hand, here in the United States. All of our stands have been thoroughly tested for strength and durability. They are designed, and built, to properly support the pressure points of a filled aquarium. It is actually not necessarily the strength of a material, but the way it is designed, that is important to supporting an aquarium. For example, custom stands made out of solid wood, concrete, or steel have been known to cause pressure cracks or other leaks in tanks. They did not support the pressure points correctly.
