Many cages made are simply wrought iron ones that have been powdered coated with paint. Uncoated wrought iron is susceptible to rusting.

I'm partial to King's cages and don't have experience with the brand you listed. As Greytness said, you want to be sure it is powder coated. I've seen stuff about some cages from China having toxic materials in their powder coating, but hopefully that's been corrected. I tend to stick with brands I know.

I'm not familiar with this brand. Do you have a link or a picture you can share with us?

I have used liberta cages and Alfie's travel cage is a kings cage. I would buy a kings cage as his main cage but they don't do one big enough*. Alfie currently has a liberta enterprise cage as his main cage.

(* = they do plenty of cages which are "big enough" for an African Grey but I wanted the biggest cage I could get)

How does the top close? My Vannah is proving to be quite the little engineer/escape artist. We need to get her a new cage and we were thinking about the 'sunroof' style (as we call it) but are worried about her safety...and that of the baseboards.

They are escape artists. We had to zip tie Timber's doors and had a little lock for the main door. That was a really poor design but I don't know what the brand was. It came with him when I rehomed him.

I'm not a fan of those sunroofs due to having read about closing accidents. Just not worth the risk is just my humble opinion.

If by sunroof you mean it's in two halves that opens up (and can be propped open with a perch) then yes, it has one of those. However, I have some fairly heavy toys hanging from both sides so that Alfie can't push it open. He has tried messing with the top of the cage but there is too much weight for it to go anywhere. Thankfully, he's not much of an escape artist!
