In times of environmental awareness, it is important to construct for the future, while carefully considering a balanced cost-benefit analysis.  Exceptional service life is provided by stainless steel reinforcement in place of the ordinary reinforcement, particularly in the critical and difficult to maintain areas of a structure.

Why Stainless Steel instead of Carbon Steel?

The Nickel Institute sheds lights into the main reason why stainless steel should be used instead of carbon steel according to research that was carried out for a construction made with carbon steel in 1969, and stainless steel in 1941. The explanation is simple: Despite having a relatively higher cost of acquisition, stainless steel will have a much lower maintenance cost and allow for a longer lifetime when compared to a similar carbon steel used in any type of construction.
