Application of Stainless Steel in Construction Internal
Because of its corrosion resistance, fire resistance, aesthetics, and mechanical performance characteristics, stainless steel is very suitable for the construction industry. Some examples of building structure application include bridge/tunnel construction, elevator/stair handles, fixing facilities around swimming pools, elevator doors or panels, street lights, outdoor art sculptures, and water transport pipes.
International Standard with Stainless steel
Furthermore, the life and potential of buildings to become landmarks require attractiveness, affordability, and environmental friendliness. Stainless steel is a great material choice for fulfilling all these requirements. European, Australian, and Japanese building design specifications all have specifications for stainless steel. ASTM is a commonly used international standard.
The most commonly used stainless steel in building applications are:
304 / 304L ( UNS S30400/S30403 , EN1.4301/1.4307, SUS304 )
316/316L ( UNS S31600/S31603 , EN1.4401/1.4404, SUS316 )
2205 ( UNS S32205/S31803 , EN 1.4462, SUS 329J3L )
As for environmental friendliness, stainless steel can reduce many negative impacts on the environment. Non-coated stainless steel plates do not produce any emissions, and its use on housing surfaces, external walls, and sun screens can reduce building energy consumption to a minimum. Stainless steel cleaning work does not cause harm to the environment and does not require dangerous chemicals.
