Stainless steel is an outstanding material. It is impervious to corrosive substances and is the material of choice for hard use and extreme conditions. Stainless steel is the ideal material for door handles and knobs in kitchens, bathrooms, offices, in the catering industry and in the medical and medical technology sector.
Stainless steel is commonly used for commercial projects and in high wear 'n' tear areas where strength and durability are the most important factors. Grade 316 stainless steel is suitable for products fitted externally or likely to be used in an aggressive atmosphere such as a swimming pool or chemical works. For interior applications in commercial and domestic situations, grade 304 stainless steel is perfectly adequate and less costly to produce. Stainless steel can be polished if a very shiny finish is required or satin for a more subtle matt look.
Practical designer Styling
Door lever handles on rose are increasingly being produced in designer styles, although the 'return to door' lever on rose is very popular for many applications. Door pull handles in stainless steel are the perfect option for corridors in busy walkways in commercial buildings, factories and shopping centres. Pubs, clubs and restaurants are also the perfect place for stainless steel pull handles, door handles and cupboard handles where durability is paramount. Finger plates and kick plates in stainless steel also provide the perfect protection for doors in such environments.
Stainless steel kitchen handles in long lengths which are straight, curved or bow shape are very popular in modern minimalist kitchens on cupboards and large drawers.
Hat and coat hooks made from steel are a very practical solution for cloakrooms and changing rooms where strength and durability is all important.
