STAINLESS STEEL WIRE BALUSTRADE: WHY IS IT IDEAL FOR OUTDOOR USE?

May 30, 2016

When it comes to securing the outdoor stairs of your residential or commercial property, the choices are many. However, the materials and balustrade design you choose for outdoor use around your home should be strong enough to provide a firm support, and it needs to be resistant to environmental exposure. Aluminum, stainless steel, and wood are the best contenders for an outdoor balustrade.

Whether or not you have zeroed-in on a material to use yet, you may find that stainless steel wire balustrade is ideal for outdoor use around your home.

Reasons Stainless Steel Wire Balustrade is Ideal for Outdoor Use

Stainless steel is an ideal material for outdoor use, especially when used as a balustrade or as a fencing structure, for several reasons, here are a few:

Safety First

Safety should always be the top priority with regards to staircases, that is why there is always some type of railing available, for people to use as a support if necessary. Wood railing is good for indoor staircases, but stainless steel balustrade is ideal for outdoor use because it is incredibly strong, resistant to corrosion and weathering, and will last longer than wood.

Stainless Steel Support is Appealing

Stainless steel works well with any combination of materials and design themes, especially when used outdoors around stairs, as a support. Unlike outdoor wood railing, stainless steel wires of balustrade do not obstruct the view around stairs. Being able to clearing see at least a few feet around stairs is important, especially when descending because small animals, children or hidden toys may lurk at the bottom of stairs, and these could cause someone to accidentally stumble and fall.

Low Maintenance of Stainless Steel Balustrade

While iron is prone to rust, and wood eventually rots, nothing can corrode or damage stainless steel. It does not need to be painted or washed regularly like wood, and no repairs are needed because stainless steel doesn’t deteriorate or weaken.

When compared to iron and wood, stainless steel wire balustrade is ideal for outdoor use around stairs, not only because of its low maintenance and weather resistant nature, but also for its use in modern home designs.
