Stainless steel is an ideal choice for parking garages and storage dwellings.

England is filled with much excitement and enjoyment as tourists, athletes, fans and families from all over the world gather to enjoy the Olympic Games throughout London.  It is wonderful to witness the patriotism and pride spread throughout Great Britain.  It is even easily felt over 5 hours away in the countryside where locals watch the competition unfold from afar.  These may seem like two different worlds, Northern England and London, but they are the same.  They both include a shared patriotism and pride that is felt…and they both experience the infamous unpredictable English summer weather.

It is impossible not to notice the change of the weather that occurs in one day.  It goes from sprinkling to sunshine to cold providing visitors with all four seasons in 24 hours.  With that said, I started to wonder what type of material holds up under such unpredictable conditions.  Wood becomes torn and frayed while brick makes a shed look tired.  So what should one use for storage and parking dwellings in Great Britain?  Stainless steel holds up under extreme weather conditions making it ideal for the bustling city of London and the abundantly green Northern England border near Wales.

When unpredictable weather strikes, it is important to use material that keeps your vehicles, farming equipment and home improvement tools protected from weather damage.  Water, wind and snow can freeze, rust and permanently damage your belongings.  Instead of worrying about the cost of leaks, upkeep and repair choose stainless steel.  It is weather resistant, durable and does not disintegrate when water and extreme conditions come into direct contact with it.

Mirrored stainless steel is an ideal choice for home and commerical projects.

There are many different design directions to go when choosing stainless steel.  You can choose colored, matted or brushed steel.  You can choose whatever size desired and have it fabricated into whatever shape you need to complete the look of your next project.  But why not add another layer of aesthetic appeal by choosing mirrored steel?  The seamless look of mirrored steel makes it a widely popular choice amongst building designers and architects today.

When walking into a commercial space with mirrored steel notice how some onlookers tend to stop, look and drool.  It has a flawless finish due to the zero lines present on the material.  It is a highly reflective surface that does not tarnish, peel or crack making it weather resistant and durable to hold up under a range of conditions.  This is why many building designers and architects love to work with this metal.

Traditional mirrors are not always a safe option for certain locations such as schools, hospitals and dance studios.  By making the switch to a mirrored stainless steel you are preventing potential accidents from occurring while complying with building safety requirements.

Be smart like the London Olympics 2012 Committee by choosing stainless steel for your next project.

The London Olympics Committee for 2012 put into thought the roles types of steel would play in the creation for venues and public areas for the Olympic Games.  The main material chosen had to exhibit environmentally safe traits.  The Committee also took into consideration the concern the growing impact the selected metal would have on the land, nature and the people around it.  The Committee chose stainless steel for a wide array of reasons including it being a 100% recyclable metal.

Today I am going to share with you an insight of why stainless steel was chosen for the Olympics and why it is the right choice for your next home and/or business project.

When producing metal for a project much energy goes into the production process.  In the past, manufacturers and engineers wasted an abundant amount of energy on soldering, welding and implementing other techniques to get a selected metal just right.  Steel manufacturers took notice of this excessive energy it emitted so they decided to make a change.  Currently, stainless steel manufacturers evolved this technique and it is now an energy efficient process making it a high quality, cost-effective, energy saving, environmentally safe selection for you.

Stainless steel is an ideal sustainable material for your next project.

There are many reasons why stainless steel is an ideal choice for architects and engineers.  It is an environmentally friendly material that is visually pleasing, purposeful and adaptable to various industries, sizes and shapes.  Modern design seems to be relying upon it more than traditional materials for these reasons.  It can display different details and architectural looks while still delivering high quality, durable and corrosion-resistant traits.

2 Advantages to Choosing Stainless Steel

Reusable

If someone must tear down the material and rebuild over it without saving a building and/or project then the architect does not fret about the affects it has on the environment.  Stainless steel can be dissolved using specific methods.  Once this is completed, the material can be reused, reduced and recycled into something new ensuring the metal is not wasted or left to remain without purpose polluting the land.

Conserves Energy

Some building materials need to be treated before it is able to conserve energy.  For instance, if you do not use stainless steel material to transfer and preserve the coolness of an air conditioning then the results can be unpredictable.  Save yourself the headache.  Stainless steel comes with a highly solar reflective index value that does not need to be applied and reapplied.  It is a characteristic embedded into the metal meaning you do not have to waste time, money and material on reapplying and replacing it to ensure energy conservation.

Stainless steel is one of the reasons why we have clean water.

Stainless steel has many positive affects upon the environment versus other materials.  For one, it is 100% recyclable.  That is a common benefit frequently mentioned when discussing this material.  However, there are many other advantages to using stainless steel that impacts the environment in a positive way.  Here are two ways it helps.

Improves Air Quality

With the prices of gas going up, it is no wonder people are turning more towards diesel fuel.  This is a smart option not only on your wallet but for the physical world around us.  Did you know that diesel filters eliminate more than 90% of black smoke and more than 80% of soot created from diesel engines?  This improves the air quality for us all.  This is in direct correlation with steel since diesel filters are made from stainless steel itself.

Keeps Our Water Supplies Clean

Clean water is essential to survival for animals, plants, the land (in its entirety) and humans.  If water is contaminated the land is deprived and starves.  The land suffers along with other plants, animals and us.  Thus, clean water assists with the land flourishing with harvest and nutrition for all the plants, animals and us to consume and grow from.  Stainless steel helps us achieve this goal.  The nominal risk of it corroding keeps water levels clean and prevents bacteria from growing.  This is why it is an ideal choice.
