When designing and building any structure there are a many factors to consider including safety, strength, cost, maintenance, to name just a few. The materials must also be sustainable and environmentally friendly, and therefore make a contribution towards the sustainability of the project itself.

Selecting the correct material for the task is vital, and this choice is now influenced by economic and environmental pressures that were not as important several years ago.

Stainless Steel can provide a viable solution to many of these challenges as well as offer a lower lifetime cost in comparison to other traditional materials.  Its high corrosion resistance ensures less maintenance, fewer replacement and rebuild costs, and the strength expected from all construction materials.

Stainless steel is used in a number of different applications including:

  • Structural components
  • Fixings
  • Masonry supports
  • Handrails & Balustrades
  • Cladding
  • Reinforcement including re-bar
  • Ducting
