Countless contractors, designers and architects are turning to stainless steel as the final solution when it comes to a variety of applications – from floors to skirtings and everything in between. The main reason for this is that stainless steel is a material that is very hardy, promises high strength and is incredibly versatile too. Furthermore, it is known to possess superior anti-corrosive properties, thus making it a top choice for both interior and exterior applications alike.
Stainless steel is versatile in that it offers specifiers a wide range of finishing options, including polished, brushed and satin, allowing contractors to achieve a host of different looks. These different finishes gives the specifier more opportunities to meet the aesthetics required. Kirk recommends Grade 316 at coastal regions and highly corrosive conditions and Grade 430 for inland areas further than 20km from the coast.
M.Trim stainless steel profiles, in particular, have been designed to protect tiles and all other flooring types from wear and tear as a result of heavy-duty pedestrian traffic, trolleys, cleaning equipment, hospital beds and luggage carriers used in shopping centres, airports, hospitals, industrial buildings, wineries, hotels and more.
Stainless steel can also be utilised to achieve many unique profile shapes such as top hats, angles, U channels, lip channels, architraves and bespoke items to architect and designer specifications.
