Stainless steel is the most durable material for washrooms. Compared to other common used materials like ceramic or composite materials, stainless steel is extremely resistant against vandalism as it’s broadly impact resistant.
The material is colour-neutral and can be combined with all other materials and colours. Stainless steel is hygienic and easy to clean. Additionally stainless steel is 100% recyclable and therefore environmentally very friendly.
Remove any protective coating as soon as possible after installation. Stainless steel can age with exposure to light and heat. Avoid the use of liquids containing chloride, hydrochloric acids and abrasives. Brushes with bristles made of steel should also be avoided.
Simply Stainless Ltd recommends the use of a wet microfibre cloth. Additionally vinegar diluted with water (20% vinegar, 80% water) can be used. Rinse off with clean, cold water after cleaning to remove the residue of cleaning materials.
Stainless steel can rust if the protecting passive layer on the surface gets damaged by the effects of external factors on the material. This can occur when the surface is in contact with chemicals like bromide, chloride or iodine.
Please always use the mounting fixings delivered with the product such as the stainless steel screws and washers. Untreated welding marks can change the colour; this is not rust and does not affect the lifespan of the product
The majority of Simply Stainless Ltd products are made from grade 1.4301, Grade 304 Stainless Steel. The formula 18/10 stands for 18% chromium and 10% nickel.
This grade of material has a very good level of corrosion resistance. Specific details of grades used for each product are contained within the useful downloadable data sheets available for each product.
Most products are manufactured from 0.9 – 1.6mm stainless steel, but going up to 2mm for some of the heavy duty ranges.
The use of wrong materials can cause corrosion when getting in contact with stainless steel. Simply Stainless Ltd supplies stainless steel screws and dowels to ensure that products remain like they should even after their installation.
