Balustrades’ Frequently Asked Questions
1.The balustrades should be installed by using the core drilling method if top fixed, for the uprights, which after tiling will create a neat continuous tiling line.
2.Tile adhesives and acid based tile cleaning agents will affect the finish of the stainless steel and corrosion marks could become evident. If you are installing wooden floors or carpets, it is advisable to install the balustrades first as core drilling is a wet process which could cause water damage.
Our sales people are qualified to recommend the correct grade of stainless steel for your railings. There are two commonly used grades of Austenitic Stainless Steels that are used for balustrades, handrails and staircases. Grade 304 is the basic chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steel and has been found suitable for the widest range of applications. This type has excellent resistance to corrosion from exposure to weather. It is the grade which is normally used for interior and exterior applications.
Grade 316 offers more corrosion resistance through the addition of molybdenum. This type is desirable where severe corrosion conditions exist, such as coastal environments.
