Miracle Metal for Architectural Hardware
Satin Stainless Steel products are the preferred choice of Healthcare facilities for a number of reasons pertaining to the hygienic properties. Hospitals, clinics, and other patient care areas have extremely demanding criteria to meet standards required for reliability and durability and stainless steel is able to meet these demands. As we consider the lasting effects of the Coronavirus pandemic , commercial design may take a few notes from the healthcare sector for general purpose use to prevent the spread of germs. Here is a look at a few of the main reasons Satin Stainless Steel is the go-to option for health and safety and why you should consider swapping out existing furniture hardware for stainless steel options:
1. Stainless Steel cleans easier than any other surface and has self-healing properties.
Stainless Steel requires very little maintenance as its hard metallic surface is inherently resistant to mold and bacteria where microorganisms are unable to survive. Its seamless texture is devoid of any cracks where debris would otherwise gather and deposit, which also makes it even easier to clean. Cleaning agents are up to four times more effective on stainless steel than other surfaces. Stainless Steel also contains chromium which creates an oxide film on the surface that actually repairs itself even in the presence of harsh chemical solvents.
2. Stainless Steel offers greater impact resistance and structural strength.
As one of the strongest materials known to man, stainless steel can withstand extreme heat and pressure making it the ideal surface for sinks and other medical equipment. Its ease of fabrication makes it suitable for shaping, welding, and cutting. It is also extremely light weight, yet it still maintains an unmatched strength to weight ratio and shows no indication of losing structural strength over time. Its remarkable strength makes it ideal for hardware such as drawer pulls and cabinet handles.
3. Stainless Steel is scratch resistant and corrosion resistant giving it long-lasting life.
Stainless Steel is the most cost-effective option for long-term usage when factoring in cost over the life of the product. Being highly resistant to normal wear and tear like scratching and staining allows it to maintain its modern aesthetic and age in place with a timeless look. Stainless steel’s longevity also increases its appeal in commercial spaces for heavy duty usage. With considerations for sustainability in design, it’s also important to note that Stainless Steel is milled from reclaimed stainless steel and is 100% recyclable.
Taking these wonderful attributes into consideration, think about how you can update your Architectural Hardware with Stainless Steel components to give it long-lasting life and take a more hygienic approach to design.
