One of the most current popular uses for stainless steel is in the construction of mesh security screening. Typically used for both window and door applications, they initially look like fly screens, but on closer inspection they appear far stronger and can’t be ripped or torn, either accidentally or on purpose.
The 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh secured into a heavy-duty aluminium frame has exceeded the Australian standard for impact testing along with knife shear, and longevity tests. 316 stainless steel screens provide the best security protection for your home.
316 Stainless Security Screen can be used on doors and windows to make your family far away from danger. Made from high tensile stainless steel and woven into a fine mesh, it is hard to break.
The Stainless Mesh is both the fly screen and the security screen. This makes it look like a normal fly screen or door, and doesn’t ruin the view with any bars or grilles. The Woven Mesh lets a lot more light and breeze through and is easier to see through than a perforated mesh.
304 grade steel is the most popular form of stainless steel by far. It’s low in carbon and higher in chromium nickel to help with resistance to oxidisation and corrosion and aid durability. It’s non magnetic and can be formed into a wide variety of shapes and structures – hence the popularity factor.
Conversely and in addition, 316 stainless steel contains an extra ingredient that 304 steel doesn’t and that’s molybdenum. Even though the molybdenum content is just 2%, it’s sufficient enough to give it a better anti-corrosive factor when exposed to a wide range of substances or solutions. One such substance is saline or rather- salt. This is why it’s often used in structural boat-building and the reason why it’s also more commonly known as marine grade steel!
