We use 304 grade stainless steel in the production of all our seats. It’s ideal for outdoor furniture due to its anti-corrosive qualities and strength, which it gets from the addition of chromium and nickel to its mix.
It’s not an easy metal to work. Its qualities make it unforgiving, requiring specialised craftsmanship. Although a challenging material to work with, we use stainless steel so that there’s no time consuming maintenance needed to keep our seating looking great. It’s a robust and durable material too, making it ideal for outdoor furniture. If desired, they can be stripped and repainted after a period of time, effectively creating brand new seats.
Although incredibly strong, stainless steel still needs careful finishing to get the best from the metal and to protect it from the elements. We use and recommend elecro-polishing and powder coating.
