Stainless Steel Handrails

Stainless steel, commonly referred to as Inox steel is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% or 11% chromium content.

Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary mild steel, but is not completely stain resistant. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required so is an ideal choice for a hard wearing and stunning looking handrail.

Stainless steel differs from carbon steel by the amount of chromium present. Unprotected carbon steel rusts readily when exposed to air and even further accelerated by moisture. Once rust is present it further increase the corrosion by forming more iron oxide. Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium to form a passive film of chromium oxide, which prevents further surface corrosion and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal’s internal structure.

Our stainless steel handrails are resistance to corrosion and staining and can even be steam cleaned making them very low maintenance once installed.

The brilliant lustre and smoothness on the hand makes them an ideal choice for handrails with the added bonus that they do not suffer from paint chips or paint being worn away.

Stainless steel is 100% recyclable. An average stainless steel object is composed of about 60% recycled material so you can even say you are doing your bit for the environment when choosing one of our Handrails.
