Using Stainless Steel Sheet in Building Construction

Stainless steel is one of the most versatile building materials around. It’s durable and relatively easy to work with, and it can be used in everything from huge industrial applications to intricate electronics projects. It’s also an affordable choice for a wide range of fabrication applications, including building construction.

The best grade of stainless steel for your application will ultimately be determined by what kind of environment the metal will be exposed to. The most common grades include 304, 316, and 430, but there are many others that can be used in specific applications. For example, type 316 is typically required in highly corrosive environments such as canning facilities, marine applications, oil field applications, and food processing. In these applications, the corrosion resistance of the metal is critical to avoiding costly downtime due to corrosion issues such as pitting or cracking.

stainless steel sheet is formed into flat, thin pieces that can be cut and shaped to create a wide range of everyday objects. It’s thinner than a metal leaf or foil, and thicker than a metal plate (which is usually used for structural purposes). It can be purchased online or in-person at any Metal Supermarkets location and can be cut to your specifications. For example, architectural stainless steel sheets can be produced in various textures and finishes to protect buildings or enhance their aesthetics, while expanded and perforated sheet is fabricated with openings that allow light, air, and water to pass through.
