What is Stainless Steel Used For?

We use stainless steel at Kwalkraft in the exterior cladding for large high impact buildings and can be seen in the interiors too in the form of handrails, counter tops, backsplashes and more.
Due to its strength, flexibility and resistance to corrosion, stainless steel is now generally used in modern construction.

Stainless Steel in Cape Town first came to be noticeable in construction during the art-deco period. Remarkably, the upper portion of the Chrysler Building was constructed from stainless steel. Stainless steel is easily welded, it has an attractive finish and is low maintenance.
Because of this, it is featured prominently in high-profile modern architecture as well as the Eurostar Terminal in London’s Waterloo Station, the Helix Bridge in Singapore, and the One World Trade Center in New York.

The trend towards sustainable building also favours stainless steel, which is mostly comprised of 90% recycled metal. Stainless steel in a polished or grain finish can help bring natural light into the building, which decreases energy consumption.

Types of stainless steels
o Ferritic stainless steel.
o Martensitic stainless steel.
o Duplex staineless steel.
o Austenitic stainless steel.
