A stainless steel flat bar is as the name suggests, a flat piece of steel in a rectangular shape with square edges. Their low carbon content and great strength make them the cornerstone of modern construction. Today we’ll be looking at common applications for stainless steel flat bars.
Stainless steel is used in most of your home appliances, from your microwaves to your fridge. The steel is given a coating to ensure its safety, durability and reliability – it also helps protect against corrosion and everyday wear and tear. Stainless steel flat bars are used in garage doors, latches and heaters as well as many other home appliances.
Stainless steel flat bars are a must-have when it comes to frame construction. A stainless steel flat bar can be an alternative to hollow steel sections or can be used in conjunction with hollow steel sections depending on the project. Stainless Steel flat bars are versatile and can be made to take any shape and clad with most materials.
Structures within energy industries
Stainless steel flat bars and beams have always been used in everything from refineries to pressure valves. The use of steel beams and bars is only going to increase as we move to more renewable sources of energy, as they provide the structural foundation for renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and hydroelectric dams.
Stainless steel bars are used in a variety of ways in modern art. Steel bars are very malleable thus making them easy to work with for a variety of art styles. Additionally, steel bars can go through some extra manufacturing processes to yield a smoother finish and outer layering, giving the artwork a sharper, cleaner appearance.
