We believe that stainless steel is the construction metal of choice for the new millennium. The recent advancements in stainless steel manufacturing, such as titanium colors, are making the specification of stainless steel an attractive possibility.
Stainless steel is the primary metal used in construction. It is particularly attractive for building applications because of its strength and resistance to rust. Skyscrapers are framed with it and homes are constructed with it. Stainless steel is used to manufacture pipe for building as well as plumbing. It is used for most hardware, hand tools and saw blades.
Stainless steel is an effective material for use in marine environments. It resists rust and holds up well in wet and salty environments.
