Stainless Steel


As a part of our Modern Metal Collection, stainless steel components are an ideal material for those who wish to achieve a modern look with a unique potential for mixing media. stainless steel can be used both for interiors and outdoor spaces. There are many types of stainless steel and their durability depends on the amount of alloy metals. We offer grade 304 for typical interior applications and for exterior, or interiors with extreme conditions (such as a pool), we use 316 grade.
