Why Stainless…

All drains meet USDA, FDA, CFIA, and CE Standards and are both Sanitary and Corrosive Resistant !!!

The Ultimate Material

There is scarcely a material in existence that has found its way to so many applications as stainless steel. Developed in the early part of the 20th century, stainless steel is an exceptional choice for today’s sanitary applications and corrosive environments.

Stainless steel is the generic name for a number of different steels used primarily because of their corrosion resistance. All stainless steels share a minimum percentage of 10.5% chromium. Chromium is always the deciding factor, although other elements, particularly nickel and molybdenum, are added to improve corrosion resistance.

In many cases stainless steel is the most cost efficient solution because of enhanced life cycle costs. Stainless steel has a significantly longer service life and requires less maintenance than other materials. Moreover, stainless steel is fully recyclable and has a high scrap value on de-commissioning.

The inherent durability of stainless steel makes it an ideal material for floor drains, floor sinks, floor cleanouts and trench drains regardless of the application. Stainless steel, with its intrinsic gratifying appearance, is perfect for facilities where hygienics and visibility are inherent, as well as, applications dealing with chemicals, detergents, and other destructive effluents. Stainless steel offers a superior sanitary surface which is the reason why it is standard for commercial kitchens and other environments where hygiene is paramount.

Industries and Applications for Stainless Steel Drains:
  • Atomic Energy, Nuclear Power Plants
  • Bottling Plants
  • Breweries
  • Chemical Plants
  • Commercial Kitchens
  • Dairies
  • Fossil Fuel Plants
  • Foot Traffic Areas, Showers or Restrooms
  • Food Handling, Restaurants and Cafeterias
  • Health Care Facilities, Hospitals, Nursing Homes
  • Laboratories
  • Pharmaceutical Facilities
  • Photographic Processing

The Products
Stainless steel is strong and ductile as compared to plastic and Hi-Sil iron, making it ideal for industrial floor drains, floor sinks, floor cleanouts, and trench drain applications. All of our cast and fabricated stainless steel drains are made of type 304 stainless steel, or 316 stainless steel (when specified).

Why Stainless Drains:

Why use stainless steel for architectural building and construction purposes?
For one, it is a beautiful building material with a high aesthetic appeal easily shaped in all kinds of forms because of its excellent ductility. Shortly after its development the material found its first large-scale use in buildings that remain among the most famous in the world, such as the Chrysler and the Empire State building. From then on the popularity of stainless steels for architectural usage grew rapidly. Today architects can choose from a wide variety of surface finishes, colors and product forms to suit their particular needs.

Another major reason for the success of stainless steels is the fact that they are among the most durable building materials ever invented. Because of their self-repairing characteristics, properly selected and fabricated stainless steels constructions will last for a lifetime. Even where environments are more aggressive, such as in heavily polluted areas and close to the sea, properly selected stainless steels will remain untouched.

Today stainless steels are used for much more than the roofing and facades for which they were first applied back in the 1920s. For example, because of their hygienic characteristics they have become standard for handrails and who can imagine a world without stainless steel sinks? Moreover stainless steels have found their way into structural applications owing to their excellent corrosion- and fire-resistant characteristics.

Issues that might very well make stainless steels the preferred material of construction for the 21st century area include life-cycle costing and sustainability. Although initial design costs might in some cases be higher, stainless steels do not require painting, cleaning, and the savings on maintenance generally more than compensate for the initial higher investment. After its use the stainless steels are 100% recyclable, and there are no limits to the amount of recyclable scrap that can be used to produce new stainless steels, significantly reducing the environmental impact.

All in all stainless steels have become a well-established building material in the century since its invention thanks to their excellent characteristics. However, their full potential has definitely not been reached, so stainless steels look set to push ahead in the architectural, building and construction market stronger then ever.
