Strong, durable, and beautiful. It’s finish makes it the choice for striking designs. Heavy and durable, it makes a great selection for high-wind locations. As a whole or as an accent with other materials, stainless steel sets any piece apart. Our standard is 304 Grade stainless which has a minimum of 18% chromium/8% nickel and is highly resistant to corrosion. However, for ocean locations, we recommend either electropolishing to prevent salt corrosion, or moving to 316 stainless steel (also known as Marine Grade). We use stainless steel in our X8, Madison, and Harrison Collections.
