Corrosion Protection

In general, stainless steels columns are used in situations where, for reasons of appearance and/or structural reliability, the corrosion associated with the use of galvanised mild steel is considered unacceptable.

Although the initial material cost may be higher, this cost is offset by a much longer service life. Initial corrosion protection costs and the expense of maintaining that system throughout the service life will also be greatly reduced.

Longer Life

The combination of corrosion resistance and relative high strength combine to offer a product with a much longer guaranteed life than other materials used for lighting columns.
