City planners save tax payers money by using stainless steel.

There are many things to consider when making city improvements to public areas.  The city has to think about choosing materials that are cost-effective and long lasting.  A material that is durable enough to hold a wide range of weight limitations.  A piece of metal that does not fray or fall apart when it is raining, snowing, high winds, flash floods and extreme heat occur.  Stainless steel meets all these specifications making it an easy decision amongst city designers.

Think about city-wide furniture and sights you see.  There is everything from billboards to parking benches to public park garbage cans made from stainless steel.  It is a chosen metal that saves the city money on replacement and maintenance expenses.  In this economy that is especially important.  Too many cities are under the risk of financial collapse while tax payers have no more money to spare.

Check out the local parks where your kids play. What material are the jungle gym, basketball hoops, benches and see-saws made from?  The majority of the time it is all created from stainless steel.

In prior generations, some city parks would use a type of cast iron metal that was painted over with acrylic gloss finish.  This causes issues.  The paint chips exposing the ugly layers underneath leaving it in danger eroding quickly.  But city officials realized it was becoming a money pit.  Tax payer dollars were exhausted on furniture and playground replacement when the entire problem could be resolved by utilizing stainless steel.
