What Makes Stainless Steel An Ideal Cornerguard Material?

Typically, when we think stainless steel we think of our kitchen sinks or a high-dollar chef's knife. However, stainless steel is a highly versatile and strong material with a wide variety of applications.

Stainless steel is a steel alloy, classified as having a minimum of 10.5% chromium in its makeup. This specialized steel does not readily rust, corrode, or stain like regular steel would. Stainless steel's inherent resistance to corrosion and staining make it a popular material for use in tableware, surgical instruments, household hardware, sink basins, and appliances. Tanks used to carry orange juice and other similarly acidic substances are often made with stainless steel because of its resistance to corrosion. It's also an excellent material to use in jewelry because it will not react with the body and corrode or turn black.

It's these properties that make stainless steel an ideal material for support beams, railing, trim, and corner guards in facilities. Plastics and rubbers can warp in the heat or otherwise react to various chemicals and materials because of their volatile make up. However, stainless steel is relatively inert and would be a much safer option in facilities which manufacture chemicals or other hazardous materials. Stainless steel is durable and strong; you'll never have to worry about its ability to withstand rough treatment. Plus, caring for your stainless steel corner guards is a breeze. Simply wipe with some warm water and gentle detergent and your corner guards will regain that luster stainless steel is so well known for.

As you can see, stainless steel has a lot of benefits to offer your facility as corner guards and more. If you would like more information, feel free to visit our website. Feel free to contact us directly, and we'd love to go over your needs and suggest a few options for you.
