Stainless Steel: A Food Safety Stalwart
Stainless steel is a material frequently associated with manufacturing and hygiene. Thanks to its non pororos nature and resistance to corrosion, heat and chemicals, stainless steel is a stalwart in high volume food processing facilities and other manufacturing plants where hygiene and durability are imperative.
Benches and vats are probably the most common imagery of stainless steel in such facilities, but they are not the only places stainless steel features. Conveyor belts, catwalks, stairs and floor wastes are also commonly fabricated from stainless steel, especially grating.
Durable Stainless Steel Floor Grating for High Volume Manufacturers
There are many types of grating, for floor wastes, platforms and other applications, however, if you operate a high volume manufacturing facility, stainless steel is the best option for you.
Unlike some other grates, the stainless steel variety can withstand a variety of conditions, be it steam, extreme high or low temperatures, large volumes of water, chemical agents, and foot and forklift traffic. While some of these qualities are due to stainless steel itself, only a high quality industrial grate can deliver the durability required to meet all of these conditions.
Additionally, unlike galvanised steel which derives its corrosion resistance from its coating, which can 1. flake, and 2. requires re-treatment, stainless steel is corrosion resistant by its composition. This means that it neither flakes nor requires re-treatment.
