Why is Stainless Steel Such a Popular Domestic Material?

2013 marks a celebratory a century of design and innovation following the discovery of stainless steel in 1913. Stainless steel has become an increasingly popular material not only in architecture, technical equipment, health and environmental products but also consumer goods. When it comes to home appliances and furniture the material has a lot to offer.

With so many benefits such as being aesthetically pleasing in design, easy to maintain and a long life span, stainless steel products are definitely worth the investment.
Stainless steel is a low carbon metal with a high chromium content which makes it corrosion resistant, an ideal domestic material. There are many unique qualities of stainless steel that make it a leading contender in the choice of suitable materials for the home where water is present, particularly in taps and radiators.

Stainless steel also has self healing properties. A chromium rich oxide film forms across the surface of stainless steel, if it should become mechanically or chemically damaged as long as there is enough oxygen present it will self heal. Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and staining, making it an ideal material for many applications.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Taps

Kitchen taps are one of the main focal points in any modern or traditional kitchen and can really add a little wow factor to any kitchen. Stainless steel taps have many benefits including superior hard wearing properties as they do not readily corrode, rust or stain and do not show up dirt and residue like polished chrome does, making stainless steel a highly regarded material for taps.

The ‘brushed’ finish does an excellent job of not showing water marks and fingerprint smears, much better than the more common polished chrome taps prevalent in most kitchens.

Not only perfect in form stainless steel kitchen taps have become innovative in design. With so many modern and traditional designs to choose from offering the latest convenient features including ceramic disc technology for quarter turn operation and swivel spouts, also easy to clean and maintain, with unrivalled reliability.

Stainless Steel Radiators

Stainless steel radiators have become a very popular bathroom trend due to the large variety of designs available. Stainless steel towel radiators come in an array of designs, sizes including flat panel, curved, arch shaped, ladder design in a range of sizes, are easily maintained and will last for many years.

Radiators used in bathrooms are always surrounded by moisture and water, which is why stainless steel radiators anti rust properties make them a great long term investment for your bathroom. Moreover, stainless steel radiators offer better heat conduction than other radiators, making them a better emitter of heat and will hold heat for a longer period of time, keeping your bathroom warmer for longer.
