Steel - material
We use 3 different types of steel: Hot-dip galvanised steel (painted or unpainted), moulded steel to be surface-treated prior to painting and stainless steel.
Painted steel fades minimally when exposed to sunlight and is unaffected by wind and weather. It is maintenance-free and easy to clean.
Stainless steel can remain untreated for many years, although we recommend regularly wiping it down to remove surface deposits (from air-borne pollution)
All our screws and bolts are made from stainless steel (A2).
