Nowadays, many people choose to get a stainless steel main gate installed for their homes. There are few main reasons of using a gate made from stainless steel
1. It is customizable
The length of main gate for each house is different. Also, if you love the uniqueness and style, stainless steel would be your best option. We can fabricate the stainless steel main gate according your desired shapes and sizes. It is a product that will enable customers to obtain customized stainless steel main gate depending on their high quality & pleasing appearance request.
2. It is easy to be cleaned and maintained
Most of the customers prefer to install stainless steel main gate is due to its low maintenance benefits. Customers understand that stainless steel gates do not absorb dirt and they can resist smudges.The easy cleaning ability of stainless steel is the first choice when customers do not need to repaint the gate & they can spend less maintenance costs.
3. They have a longer life span
If you compare it with gates made from other metals e.g. iron, you will bear me witness that a steel gate is bound to stay. Provided that it is well maintained, it can survive even in the worst weather. It can maintain its aesthetic qualities for a long time. When the total life cycle costs are considered, stainless steel is often the least expensive material option.
4.It does not harbor germs
Stainless steel main gate can resist germs and bacteria more effectively than other materials like wood and plastic. It is an ideal option to be installed at outdoor for homes that keep pets and small children since the compound should be kept immaculate and clean as possible.
What is stainless steel ?
All steels have the same basic iron and carbon composition, but stainless steel also contains a healthy dose of chromium—the alloy that gives stainless steel its famous corrosion resistance. Chromium produces a thin layer of oxide on the surface of the steel known as the 'passive layer'. This prevents any further corrosion of the surface.
Stainless steel must contain at least 10.5 percent chromium. Depending on the grade, it may contain much higher chromium levels, and additional alloying ingredients like molybdenum, nickel, titanium, aluminum, copper, nitrogen, phosphorous and selenium. Increasing the amount of Chromium gives an increased resistance to corrosion.
The two most common stainless steel grades are 304 and 316. The key difference is the addition of molybdenum, an alloy which drastically enhances corrosion resistance, especially for more saline or chloride-exposed environments. 316 stainless steel contains molybdenum, but 304 doesn’t. 304 stainless steel is the most common form of stainless steel used around the world, largely due to its excellent corrosion resistance and value. It contains between 16 and 24 percent chromium and up to 35 percent nickel, as well as small amounts of carbon and manganese.
316 grade is the second-most common form of stainless steel. It has almost the same physical and mechanical properties as 304 stainless steel, and contains a similar material make-up. The key difference is that 316 stainless steel incorporates about 2 to 3 percent molybdenum. The addition increases corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides and other industrial solvents.
316 stainless steel is commonly used in many industrial applications involving processing chemicals, as well as high-saline environments such as coastal regions and outdoor areas where de-icing salts are common. Due to its non-reactive qualities, 316 stainless steel is also used in the manufacture of medical surgical instruments.
For outdoor furnishings like rails and bollards, stainless steel is an ideal corrosion-resistant material, but it will only withstand long-term exposure if the grade is appropriate for its environment. 304 is an economical and practical choice for most environments, but it doesn’t have the chloride resistance of 316. The slightly higher price point of 316 is well worth it in areas with high chloride exposure, especially the coast and heavily salted roadways. Thus, we normally use stainless steel grade 304 in our production to meet our clients’ budget.
Why Stainless Steel?
Corrosion is a natural phenomenon. In wet or humid conditions iron reacts with the oxygen contained in water to form iron oxide, also known as rust. The red flaky oxide deteriorates easily—exposing more material to corrosion. Iron and standard carbon steels are highly susceptible to this type of corrosion. One of the main reasons why people choose to use stainless steel is because of its advantages and physical properties, the most popular is its corrosion resistance although there are many more.
A major reason that stainless steel is used is because of its sheer strength. This has been proven through its use in the building and construction industry. The aesthetic appeal which stainless steel has makes it a popular choice for many. Stainless steel is available in a range of surface finishes and the fact that it can also be polished makes it aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Stainless steel is one of the most hygienic materials and does not support the growth of bacteria and other pathogens. Better yet, stainless steel is a breeze to clean and maintain, requiring a simple swabbing with an all purpose cleaner and a quick polish it along the grain to make it shine. Since stainless steel is low maintenance and easy to clean, it’s a perfect choice for hospitals, kitchens, and other areas where cleanliness is necessary.
Stainless steel is very tough, and even lightweight stainless steel won’t buckle under great weight, making it one of the most durable metals on the market. It can endure weight, hot and cold temperatures as well as weather extremes.
Once oxidized, or passivized, stainless steel typically rusts at a very low rate of less than 0.002 inches per year. When kept in its best condition, stainless steel offers clean and bright surfaces ideal for many building and landscape designs.
Its long life cycle makes it perfect for use in buildings and puts it ahead of other products in the fact that it will outlast many of them. When you add in that stainless steel is easy to maintain and put these reasons together overall it is the lowest cost choice for many in a life cycle cost comparison.
