Stainless Steel is certainly the best choice for the most integral parts of any externally based structure or construction, many different sizes of channel, fixings, fittings, and fasteners are available in stainless steel as a result.
The presence of Chromium within the stainless steel alloy means that stainless steel (SS) products are almost entirely rust proof. As a result they last much longer than alternatives such as Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), Pre Galvanised (PG), and Hot Dip Galvanised (HDG).
However, this level of quality comes with a price and often SS products can be four or five times as expensive as their HDG counterparts. Availability is not an issue as there is a very large and wide range of fasteners, fixings, fittings, channels, etc. readily stocked in SS.
Which Grade is for me?
It is important that you get the right grade of SS for your build, and at DP Building Systems our technical team would be happy to assist with that if your are not sure which would be most suitable. We supply SS to many companies throughout the UK including Aberdeen and the Shetland Isles.
All of our stainless steel channel is genuine Unistrut and marine grade, as it is used in the North Sea Oil Fields, such as in Aberdeen, Scotland. Therefore it can stand up to the most savage of conditions for a lifetime.
Unistrut A4/316 marine grade stainless stead is our premium, however we also have A2/304 available which is slightly cheaper and could be more applicable to your construction.
