Stainless Steel Ladder Heated Towel Rails
Why it's better to choose a Stainless Steel Heated Towel Rail
Stainless Steel is by no means a new invention. The uses for stainless steel are increasing and the stainless heated towel rails from TradePlumbing are made of 304 stainless steel.
Why do we make our designer Towel rails and radiators from Type 304 Graded Stainless Steel rather than other cheaper alternatives? To give the towel rail radiator a prolonged life and better corrosion protection - the best in the market. 304 Stainless steel towel rails are one of the highest grades in the market these were a new line of stainless steel towel rails that have proved incredibly popular with customers seeking a premium product with a longe guarantee. This type of Stainless Steel is environmentally friendly. Type 304 Stainless Steel has a high resistance to rust, which is why it is ideal for use in heated towel warmers.
The benefits of Stainless Steel
Stainless steel by its own nature and properties will not corrode or flake. It also is easy to clean and is completely hygienic with no recognized health risks. Stainless steel is produced from 90% recycled metal, is manufactured environmentally and is 100% recyclable itself. Our towel rails and radiators will last a lifetime as they are manufactured from Type 304 Stainless Steel welds. Small marks and scratches can be polished out so the towel rail of your choice will at all times look fantastic. This makes a towel rail of this class the best decision to make in order to heat your home. As our towel rails and radiators are made from a Type 304 Stainless Steel, it holds back rust unlike some other towel rails and radiators which possess a lesser grade of steel (such as 301).
Type 304 Stainless Steel is a variation of the basic ‘18/8’ grade, Type 302, with higher chromium and lower carbon content. This lower carbon content minimises chromium carbide precipitation due to welding and it’s susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. Type 304 Stainless Steel can be exposed continuously to a maximum temperature of 899°C (1650°F) without appreciable scaling. For intermittent exposure, the maximum temperature is around 816°C (1500°F). Types 304 Stainless Steel have very good drawability. Their combination of low yield strength and high elongation permits successful forming of complex shapes.
