Stainless Steel Fabrication

We manufacture a wide range of marine, industrial and domestic  fittings using 316-grade stainless steel.

During manufacture we only use 316-grade stainless steel, and all our fittings are hand polished to resist the harsh and corrosive marine elements.

Bow rails are constructed from 25mm x 1.6mm 316 stainless steel tube and so too are stern rails, stanchions and most other tubular work.

Larger sizes may be used when required or when specified by the client.

Gary Knott Stainless Marine Services are more than happy to quote and complete projects to suit specific customer requirements.

Benefits of using Stainless Steel

Corrosion Resistance
Stainless steel has a high resistance to corrosion. Low alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric conditions; highly alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions, and chloride bearing environments, even at highly elevated temperatures and pressures.

High and Low Temperature Resistance
Some grades will resist scaling and maintain high strength at very high temperatures, while others grades will show exceptional toughness at very low temperatures.

Ease of Fabrication
The majority of stainless steels can be cut, welded, formed, machined and fabricated readily.

The cold work hardening properties of many stainless steels can be used in design to reduce material thickness and reduce weight and costs. Other stainless steels may be heat treated to make very high strength components.

Aesthetic Appeal
Stainless steel is available in many surface finishes. It is easily and simply maintained resulting in a high quality, durable and pleasing appearance.

Life Cycle Characteristics
Stainless steel is a durable, low maintenance material and is often the least expensive choice in a life cycle cost comparison.
