Tremendous support for stainless steel frames
Stainless steel is often chosen for industrial applications, due to its extreme tensile strength, heat tolerance and corrosion resistance. These characteristics also make it an excellent material choice for outdoor furniture. While aluminum offers many cost and portability benefits, it can dent more easily than stainless steel, which will not blow away under windy conditions and can support much heavier tempered glass or ceramic tabletops. While nearly impervious to rust and other corrosive processes, regular stainless steel can be broken down by salt air and water. However, marine-grade, high chromium and powder-coated stainless steel are inured to virtually all oxidation from the elements, and should be used for all coastal residential and commercial installations.
Sleek and eco-chic metal
One of the aesthetic benefits of stainless steel is that its metallic silver finish, whether matte, brushed or mirrored, has a stylish contemporary look that complements the clean lines of modern furniture design. Because they're very strong, stainless steel frames can extend and flow in artistic forms, without being interrupted by unnecessary welds or joints. Stainless steel is also easy to clean and resists discoloration (hence the name), so your patio furniture sets will look great for years. Additionally, stainless steel is frequently made from recycled metals, which makes it an eco-friendly option as well.
